Dave Pether Collection
Along with many other well-known British artists, such as Jim Burns, Les Edwards, John Harris and Terry Oakes, Pether contributed to "Heroic Dreams," the terrific fantasy compendium of art published by Paper Tiger, 1987) Pether was an early member of that group of rising British artists of the late 1970s who would become associated with the best fantasy art of the 198o's. He was among those featured in "Fantastic Planet" one of the Galactic Encounters series of books based on the Terran Trade Authority Universe. (Crescent, 1980) He became successful as a book cover artist, spanning several genres (romance, westerns, crime) and also created art for the well-known Games Workshop White Dwarf magazine and box cover art for Psygnosis games 1993-1994.: Wiz n Liz and Puggsy. His distinctive style and technical skills are evident in the two paintings we are fortunate to be able to offer at this time - his original art is rarely seen for sale.
