The deceiving eye

£8.00

Product description

Richard Hescox has been using our deceiving eye for over thirty years to take us to worlds of fantasy. His vividly realistic images, created with gifted draughtsmanship and augmented by his brilliant use of colour and composition have made him one of the most widely sought-after illustrators in the fantasy and science-fiction field. Now, for the first time his illustrations are available in book form - featuring more than 100 of his favourite pieces. Hescox has opened the gates to his formidable imagination and invited us to spend time within the worlds he has brought to life, among characters he's visualized from the words of noted authors as well as those entirely of his own creation. Despite being best known for having illustrated over 130 paperback book covers, encompassing a wide range of science fiction and fantasy authors, including Edgar Rice Burroughs, Marion Zimmer Bradley and Roger Zelazny, Hescox has also done extensive work for the motion-picture industry as well as computer-game artwork. He is one of the industry's most versatile artists, and one of its most respected.
