Hello readers here are the new titles available at Pulp's Art, a unique book shop serving the enthusiast of the best in illustration, old and new.

Here's a fellow Brit who has been around nearly as long as I have but looking a whole let better on it, the cad!

HC in Slipcase 304pp Color, Black + White
DK Adult
So James Bond 50 years young this year and as one would expect over this span of time he's endured mixed fortunes, weak martinis, fashion faux pas, dud puns, misogyny and a small weapon in the - column but fast cars and faster gals, along with those outrageous stunts on the + side.
This book celebrates JB's career in the poster and lobby cards which enticed and greeted cinemas goers down the years.
They're all here, the good, the bad and the ugly, smoldering Sean, transient George, smirking Roger, irate Tim, sneering Pierce and determined Dan.
The quality of the posters are as mixed as the quality of the films, both reflecting prevailing fashions of the time but those from arguably the golden age, before the safari suits and the spiteful killing of unarmed women, were illustrated by some top draftsmen such as Renato Frantini, Robert McGinnis, and Frank C McCarthy. 
Even some from the following era of Roger Moore were wonderfully crafted by McGinnis, Bob Peak and Dan Goozee until photographic images became the order of the day.
The book boasts great reproduction of the art for all the films produced by the Broccoli family and is fairly comprehensive, it also features rare sketch and concept art, which for hard to fathom reasons never went into production. 
It also contains some oddities, including art from Asian posters, images from the misguided beatnik version of Casino Royal with Sellers and Niven both playing the lead role and Connery's return to the role in Never Say Never Again (Ever).
This Autumn will see the release of Skyfall and frankly it looks like it's going to be a cracker, so why not whet your appetite with this intriguing book.

From the big to the small screen now where we meet one of TV animation's best character designers in,

SC 80pp Color
Stephe has been an animation pro since 1997 and is the artist behind such hit shows as Kim Possible and Clerks.
In this book for big pockets you'll find a little bit of everything Stephe packs into his impressive arsenal, portraits, caricatures, life drawing, pin-ups and animals, all drawn in Stephe's spontaneous and fluid style.

Two best buddies, one from comics and animation and the other a regular comicbook artist, decided to share book space just as they share a stand each San Diego Comic Con, what Sean - Cheeks - Galloway and Ryan Benjamin have in common is talent and passion.

HC 104pp Color
Yes the cover isn't giving a whole lot away is it? I'll give you a couple of interior pages in a moment, what you need to know is this book has significant chunks of comic stories, Sean serves up a Bastion 7 and Gumshoes 4 Hire cross over, while Ryan heaps on another installment of his apocalyptic online graphic novel Pancretia.
Now for those pages and first up is a slice of Sean's,

and here's a helping of Ryan's,

So you've seen the chaps' comic work and maybe you'd like to see the blood, sweat and tears behind it all, if so then we recommend,

HC 104pp Color, Black + White
In which Sean and Ryan show you how they do their thing, you'll see vehicle, environment and character designs from the comic stories featured in the above book and again to help you get a taste of the taffy here are some pages.

OK, keeping the cocktail theme going we now mix comics and the big screen and shake it up to the point of screaming!

OK let's avoid a con flab about the merits of Prometheus, some of you liked it some of you didn't, anyway long before this though supposedly long after was Ridley Scott's original sci-fi monster movie Alien.
Two of the best professionals then in the business were asked to adapt the movie into a comic format, Archie Goodwin and Walter Simonson delivered a tour de force which became a New York Times best seller.

Finally to a pleasingly irreverent collection of portraits in,

Ginko Press
Oh he's been a right cheeky chap has Alex Gross, he's taken old portraits from the 19th century and painted over them, so now some body's great grand dad is General Urko from the Planet of the Apes, someones Nan a Star Trek villain! I guess given the original sitters are now long gone and are strangers to boot we shouldn't worry for their dignity, so let's not, let's just enjoy!
( Note to self, ensure clear instructions are left in the will for usage of photos and video clips of self!)
