Coming soon: "Alex Raymond: An Artistic Journey: Adventure, Intrigue and Romance"
Out Dec. 10, 2015.
Alex Raymond was one of the most influential comic strip artists of the
20th Century, creating action-packed art for Secret Agent X-9, the
spectacular, classic imagery for Flash Gordon, and the nuanced,
brilliant artwork for the detective/film-noiresque Rip Kirby. Now, for
the first time, Hermes Press presents a comprehensive, definitive, art
monograph covering Raymond's complete artistic output with an
authoritative text by noted comics historian Ron Goulart. This new
exhaustive full color art book features over 400 images, many scanned
directly from Raymond's original artwork, and is being published under
license from King Features as part of their 100th anniversary
celebration. See original artwork from Raymond's work on Secret
Agent X-9, Flash Gordon, Jungle Jim, and Rip Kirby together with
numerous examples of his earliest strip artwork, commercial
illustration, and more. This extra large format art book is
presented in a 10 by 13 inch size, so collectors can savor every detail
of Raymond's artistic genius.
