The Art of The Trigan Empire
Launched in the weekly children's magazine Ranger in 1965 and concluding in the final issue of Look and Learn in 1982, the fondly remembered British adventure strip The Trigan Empire combined genuine history with fantasy, myth and science fiction, and featured lushly painted illustrations. This sale catalogue beautifully reproduces 110 pieces of art from the Look and Learn archive, concentrating on the pages created by Don Lawrence (1928–2003), the strip's first and longest-running artist, and Ron Embleton (1930–1988).
French artist Mirka Lugosi creates a surreal fetishist dreamworld in this collection of her paintings and drawings. The pocket-sized artist's book presents 50 icon-like, fantasy pictures of unsettling mysterious locations, erotic paraphernalia and women exposing themselves. The images are accompanied by poetic texts by Marie-Laure Dagoit. Sexually explicit.
Published quarterly, Illustrators covers all kinds of illustration, from war comics to glamour. Each issue comprises lavishly illustrated articles on four or five graphic artists, along with general articles, book reviews and readers' letters. In Issue 5, Peter Richardson talks with Mick Brownfield as he looks back over a long and illustrious career, and other essays cover equestrian specialist Derek Eyles, Brian Sanders and Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone.
