I first became aware of Franklin Booth through one of many artists whose work he has influenced... Bernie Wrightson.
After being completely swept away by Wrightson's epic, masterful illustrations of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein, I sought out Franklin Booth's work. I was somewhat surprised and disappointed at the lack of published volumes of his work! Particularly for such an apparently influential artist.
A search here on Amazon, finally provided the result I was looking for... Franklin Booth: Painter With A Pen. This volume fills in a gap on an extremely talented artist! Examples of his published works, both illustrative and decorative, are plentiful here. Gustav Dore's woodcuts are the most obvious influences in Booth's work, but he takes this form to a fresh, more spontaneous level, with immediacy and energy of line that the flow of pen and ink allows over printmaking. The sureness and complete control of the medium is nothing short of astonishing, and the fact that Booth was a self taught artist truly confirms his artistic genius.
It's also a joy to finally see Roy Krenkel's wonderful, heartfelt introduction in print here! This book will provide hours of enjoyment to any fan or student of art. I highly recommend it!

I enjoyed this book. I had to wait until it was reprinted to get a good look at it.
Anyone interested infine illustration and especially pen and ink work will surely be amazed by these works.
The only drawback is that it only covers his black and white work and is therefore incomplete.

For me this was a long-awaited title b'coz as an artist I admire Franklin Booth's Pen and Ink techniques which inspires me a lot!! This book contains many different pictures which reveal his mastery over every aspect of art such as composition, design, drawing, and figurative and landscape. The title of the book says it all "He is truly a Painter with a Pen". Hats off to one of the greatest artists of the century!!!
