The Paperback Art of James Avati

by Piet Schreuders & Kenneth Fulton

Donald M. Grant, Hampton Falls, New Hampshire. Oversized paperback, 200 pages. Color illustrations throughout.

Prolog by Stanley Meltzoff includes his famous painting of Avati in his studio. This is a big, bright, boldly illustrated book outlining the work of one of the greatest paperback illustrators of all time. It includes reproductions of hundreds of Avati's original paintings, the covers they illustrated, and often Avati's preliminary B&W photos, sketches and prelim paintings.

The biographical writing is well done and interesting. And every single page catches the eye and holds the reader's interest. An excellent volume.
