Overview
"The images presented here are solidly original, redefining much of what passes for today's lauded fantasy art…Ikonographica makes me an admirer instead of an artist." - Michael Wm Kaluta This first comprehensive collection of Stephen Barnwell's fantasy drawings features outstanding artworks from his illustration career, spanning almost forty years. Included in this amazing book are his complete works published in the groundbreaking collectible card games, "Mythos" and "Heresy, Kingdom Come." Barnwell's work has appeared in numerous books, magazines, newspapers, and gaming products. His fine art has been in over 90 exhibitions in galleries and museums worldwide, and his work is in several prestigious collections. His previous books have been named Best Books of the Year by Publisher's Weekly and Kirkus Reviews, as well as garnering multiple awards. A Visionary and Symbolist artist, Barnwell creates images of angels, demons, dreams, magick, and nightmares. Rather than high fantasy, with swords and sorcery and dragons, Barnwell's fantasy reaches deeper into the collective subconscious, revealing mankind's primal visions and mythology. Overflowing with over 115 dazzling illustrations, "Ikonographica" is a feast for the eyes. A must-have book for all fans of fantasy and gaming art, it is a book that you will enjoy over and over, sharing with special friends, with each viewing of the book discovering new meaning and delight. With a special introduction by the legendary comix and fantasy artist, Michael Wm Kaluta.
