    Frank Frazetta Kubla Khan Plate 5 Preliminary Sketch Original Art (circa 1977). Expressive pencil and ink preliminary, drawn in preparation for a plate that saw print in Frazetta Prints' 1977 limited edition Kubla Khan portfolio. Each piece in the portfolio used light, simple backgrounds to drive the viewer's eye to the exquisite detail in the central figure of the plate -- very effective! The result was some of Frazetta's most powerful pen and ink work. This prelim/study piece has an image area of approximately 14" x 13" on the back of a 18.5" x 14" Buck Rogers print, on thin board. There is light foxing on the edges and corners, with a touch of red paint in the upper right, and a "skinned" abrasion on the lower center. With overall toning, this is in Very Good condition.
