Throughout his life Lee Brown Coye created wildly imaginative and fantastic artwork for prized books by Ray Bradbury, Stephen Vincent Benet, H.P. Lovecraft and many other fantasy & horror authors. Find out why many modern day artists in fantasy movies (Guillermo del Toro, The Devil’s Backbone), horror authors (Stephen King), and graphic-novelists (Mike Mignola, Hellboy) are Coye fans. Arts Unknown brings together for the first time over 350 images of much-sought-after art in one place — including many pieces never published before. This is volume one of the Library of American Artists, from Nonstop Press.
