Jane Frank: The Art of Richard Powers
Richard Powers is credited with single-handedly revolutionizing the look of science fiction -- his uniquely imaginative and distinctive style, replete with abstract and Surrealist imagery, defined a coming of age for this literary genre during the Golden Era of paperback science fiction. Starting with his first appearance on Ballantine's paperbacks in the 1950s, Richard Powers' career spanned over four decades in which he produced cover illustrations for over 1,200 sf novels and magazines. Now widely regarded as the single most influential artist in the history of paperback illustrative art, Richard Powers is also considered a figure of towering stature in American twentieth-century fine art.
The book includes a foreword by Vincent DiFate, and a biography of the artist written by his son, Richard Gid Powers...along with 120 full color illustrations of the artists' works....plus a checklist of hundreds of publications that were illustrated by Powers, with dozens of thumbnail color illustrations.
