4.0 out of 5 stars Jones the Paint, 9 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Solar Wind: Peter Jones (Paperback)
Large format, PB collection of fantasy & sci-fi paintings by a leading artist in the genre (who actually studied fashion/graphic/interior design at college!). They originally formed cover art for 70s paperbacks and it's nice to see the familiar images as works in their own right, freed from their jacket typography and to know who did them. The book is divided into themed chapters and has an introduction which discusses Jones' technique. Stylistically, he is somewhere between Jim Burns and Boris Vallejo (see my other reviews). Ugly cover image (hence four stars) but attractive contents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revisiting the sci-fi artwork of my misspent youth., 22 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Solar Wind: Peter Jones (Paperback)
Don't let the age of this title fool you - Peter Jones's art is truly timeless, and easily stands comparison to far more recent work by other artists. No mean feat when you consider that this is art done the traditional way, no digital assistance. This brings back fond memories of browsing the science fiction section in my local library as a young lad back in the 70s.
