    Frank Frazetta - Original Illustration (Canaveral Press, 1962). Frank Frazetta's ink drawings reached a peak around 1962, when he was hired by Canaveral Press in New York to illustrate some of the Edgar Rice Burroughs books they were reprinting at that time. Frank set out to impress the world with these drawings, and serious Frazetta collectors agree that these Canaveral drawings are superior to anything else he did in his long career. His inking prowess was astonishing, and when you study these drawings, you won't find a single tiny line that looks out of place. In all of Frazetta's later work, he tried time and time again to duplicate the perfection which is displayed in these drawings, but he never managed to do it. In his mid-thirties when he did these, his hand was so steady and his eye-hand coordination so complete that these drawings are his masterpieces in ink. This piece measures 7.75" x 6", with an image area of approximately 5" x 5". There is a bit of light soiling at the edges which does not affect the art. Otherwise, this piece is in beautiful condition. From the collection of Russ Cochran.
