    Description

    Ian Miller Eaters of the Dead Paperback Novel Illustration Original Art (Bantam, 1976). Miller captures in pen-and-ink the horrific bleakness of Crichton's tale of torments endured in the company of ancient Viking warriors. Vividly detailed linework, at a size slightly larger than miniature. Most commercial artists work in dimensions larger than published size. Comparatively few, such as Miller, Edward Gorey, and Drew Friedman, exhibit the patience to render such detail in small proportions. The movie version of 1999 introduced the proxy title, The 13th Warrior. The drawing is signed and personally inscribed (dated at 1980) at lower edge. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 7" x 11.5". In Excellent condition.
