With Full Page original artwork by Ken Kelly. The Art of Ken Kelly. Author: Kelly, Ken (intro By Frank Frazetta) Title: The Art of Ken Kelly Publication: Pittsburgh, PA: Friedlander Publishing Group 1990 Edition: First Edition. Faux padded black leather binding in slipcase. Shallow bump to edge of slipcase, and a touch of rubbing to the gold decoration on the front cover.
One of 500 copies of the Gold Edition, "each with an original pen and ink drawing by the artist" according to the limitation statement. There was also a trade edition (unknown print run) and a Silver edition which was 2000 copies signed and numbered.
Our copy has a full-page black and white detailed pencil drawing of a classic Kelly image on the back of the front flyleaf - the Heroic Muscled warrior with helmut, broadsword and battle axe splattered with blood. The image is signed by Kelly and dated 2006. We bought this copy directly from the Ken Kelly at a convention.Given the apparent scarcity of these, we're skeptical that all 500 were done with the original artwork in them and the artist hasn't tracked the number he's illustrated. Whether or not they were all published, this is great work by a great artist, and very deserving on the science fiction art collector's shelf.
And certainly giftable with that wonderful feeling of being a unique copy by definition! Subject: Original Artwork, Science Fiction & Fantasy.
