    It seems my re reading of books carries on unabated although in my defence I am moving books around ready for a new book case come on lock down give me a chance So here I am digging through my Papertiger collection and I realise I have an artist well model maker book on order and I suddenly realise I had seen is work before Cue the search for said book And yes I found it although from a book of only 144 pages his entry is one of the smallest Something I hope to correct in few days time It seems my re reading of books carries on unabated although in my defence I am moving books around ready for a new book case come on lock down give me a chance So here I am digging through my Papertiger collection and I realise I have an artist well model maker book on order and I suddenly realise I had seen is work before Cue the search for said book And yes I found it although from a book of only 144 pages his entry is one of the smallest Something I hope to correct in few days time when the book arrives but do not worry there will beon that later.I do still love the Papertiger books and must go back to find thoseelusive copies I am missing although I have notice that the binding techniques used are not the most robust With several cracks appearing in the spine even with the most careful of handling I guess like us all we start to crack with age However I enjoyed reading as much today as I did then.Ok with this one I guess I need to thank my brother during the mid to late 80s he was developing his artistic skills me my ability goes as far as sticking macaroni pasta to pieces of paper but he has a great talent though he went on to become a draughtsman Anyway during his experiments and explorations he came across a number of fantasy and science fiction artwork books which let me to my love of the works of Paper tiger Well this was one of the first he found and years later one of the first I tracked down and bought.The book consists of commentaries and example pieces from 6 authors of vary styles, media and subjects They are all amazing and all worth further investigation so much so that the work of Michael Kaluta led me to the version of Metropolis I consider one of my all time treasures This is a great show case and is one of the many reasons I morn the passing of such a brilliant publisher

    The six artists featured here are Michael Kaluta, Berni Wrightson, Charles Vess, Melvyn Grant, Julek Heller, and Chris Moore This volume is basically a series of interviews with the artists and some samples of their work, but it s a very nice collection Chris Moore, in particular, paints beautiful Chris Foss like spaceships and robots.
