Heads Up: SWORD’S EDGE by Sanjulian

Forthcoming from Underwood Books:

Sword’s Edge: Paintings Inspired by the Works of Robert E. Howard by Sanjulian, edited by Arnie & Cathy Fenner and Manuel Auad

We love Robert E. Howard and we love Sanjulian: put the two together and you know you’ve got magic. This is a slim powerhouse of a collection featuring Sanjulian’s full color interpretations of the classic Conan stories. The book features a vibrant selection of previously unpublished works along with several rare covers from the 1970s.

Product description from Amazon.com:

Countless artists have painted Robert E. Howard’s characters through the years, but none have done so more brilliantly than legendary Spanish painter Manuel Pérez Clemente Sanjulián. With the impact of a battle axe, Sword’s Edge collects an action-filled brace of paintings that brings Howard’s classic stories to vivid life for a new generation of enthusiasts. Best known in the United States for his cover paintings for the comic magazine Vampirella, Sanjulián has been rightly called “an artist’s artist” for his masterful compositions and vibrant use of color. Honored by the Society of Illustrators, he has created his numerous book jackets for a diverse range of publishers.
