DescriptionFrank Frazetta Jongor Fights Back Paperback Book Cover Painting Original Art (Popular Library, 1967). The fantastic "lost world" (located in the vast outback of Australia) that jungle lord Jongor called home never looked better than in the power-packed paperback book covers painted by Frank Frazetta. The books themselves may not have been the equal of works by Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard, but never mind that -- writer Robert Moore Williams could have filled the pages of this particular book with nursery rhymes, and we fanboys would still buy it, for the cover alone. And this cover is a special treat for those of us who love dinosaurs mixed in with their rugged heroes and scantily-clad damsels in distress.
This classic cover is certainly a fan favorite, perhaps the best of the three Jongor covers Frazetta completed. It's an instantly recognizable image, with the heroic Jongor aiming his arrow at a group of pterodactyls flying by, while a gorgeous woman hangs on to the massive lizard creature that both are riding. This is fantasy art at its very finest, by the undisputed master of the genre -- Frank Frazetta. Need we say more?
Well, we will tell you that this is an oil painting on Masonite, with an image area of 15.5" x 23.75", framed without glass in an ornate gold-finish wood frame measuring 22.25" x 30.75". There appears to be the tiniest sliver of paint missing from the upper left corner; otherwise, it's in Excellent condition. We're sure you realize that treasures like this rarely come up for auction, so if owning a first-rate Frazetta painting is on your bucket list, this is the time to act!
