    Frank Frazetta 20 Page Sketchbook of Original Art (circa 1952). This is a Frank Frazetta spiral bound sketchbook, measuring 12"x 9". Twenty pages of quintessential Frazetta images are rendered in pencil on the front and back of ten pieces of drawing paper. The conceptions in this sketchbook could serve as a workbook for Frazetta's famous Thun'da stories. Marvelous images of heroic jungle men, cavemen, Neanderthals, snakes, jungle foliage, mountain and tropical "lost landscapes," flying lizards, lumbering Stegosaurus, skeletal and anatomical studies of Tyrannosaurus Rex, and head studies of the Piltdown Man, all leap to life on the pages of this sketchbook. The first page and one of the "dinosaur" pages were shown in the book Frank Frazetta: Icon. Included with this lot is a card with the seal, "Certified and Authorized by Frank and Ellie Frazetta," and signed by Frank Frazetta Jr. A stunning catalog of the fantasy images that have made Frank Frazetta an art legend.
