$39.95

“I learned how to compose, how to tell a story. There’s no way I could have done what I did later if I hadn’t had all that men’s adventure magazine work.” -Mort Künstler

Known today as “America’s Artist” for his popular and much admired historical paintings, it was in the wild world of men’s adventure magazine illustration that Mort Künstler honed his ability to present large-scale action while never losing sight of essential details. It led to a mastery of capturing conflict in paint-both the spectacle, and the human cost. At long last, The Men’s Adventure Library brings an unequaled selection of Künstler’s finest pieces from the men’s adventure magazine era back into print in this bold, colorful collection, available in both softcover and expanded, deluxe hardcover editions. From the explosive intensity of battles on the sea and in the air, to taut, face-to-face showdowns and animal attacks, every page explodes with action, color, and artistry.
