    Description

    Frank Frazetta Science Fiction Book Club Advertising Painting Original Art (Doubleday, 1970). A loving tribute to sci-fi in general by Frank Frazetta. Many of the tropes and sub-genres are touched upon, from otherworldly barbarians -- to space travel -- to alien creatures. The large frog at the top is an homage to the first science fiction story ever written... a story from the 2nd Century by Greek satirist Lucian of Samosata titled "A True Story". It contained a trip to the moon where giant frogs were discovered. This painting was created in oil on canvas wrapped board. There is a type set paste-up element in the middle with the advertising text on it. Signed by Frazetta in the lower right. Open front framed to 16" x 19.75". In Excellent condition.
