There are artist renderings of almost every character, from Menolly, Lessa, and F'lar; to C'gan, Dorse, Moreta, even Dunca and Pona are in here! Main characters and minor ones--they are all here, and many are uncannily just as I had pictured them in my head! As a bonus, Ms. McCaffrey supplied little commentaries on each portrait that are fascinating to read.
All the portraits are works of true art, but the masterpiece of the book is the portrait of Robinton! You've got to see it--Robin Wood captures him perfectly! Anyone who loves the Pern books should have this in their collection.
However I *loved* the portraits of F'lar and T'gellan! Whatta couple of hunks! While Lytol was a surprise(I always pictured him with a beard and a bit more portly) the artist did capture the look of a "dragonless man" fairly well. Mirrim and Path looked absolutely precious together.
All in all, I'd still say it's worth the effort to track down this out-of-print book!
The prints of the present Art book bring visualization of the Characters of Anne's stories to 'life' in my mind even further than my own imagination was able to give them.
I have added this book to my library and have it to refer to when I reread the Pern Series.
