    Bernie Wrightson Master of the Macabre Card #15: The Headless Horseman Original Portfolio (FPG Cards, 1993). No survey of classic horror art is complete without an awareness of Wrightson. His Master of the Macabre card-folio set is a concise account of a brilliant career. This example excels at bringing to life the menacing figure of Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." Painted in textured acrylics on off-white watercolor stock, with an approximate image area of 6" x 8" -- significantly larger than the published version -- and matted to 9" x 11.5". Excellent condition. Wrightson signed the matte back when he was still working under the streamlined name of Berni Wrightson.
