Here is the exciting copy for the upcoming book. Likely some things you did not know about Margaret!

"Conan" is from the Deluxe Slipcased Edition that contains 16 bonus pages

"Starting in 1932, Margaret Brundage, wife of leftist revolutionary Slim Brundage, -- who she met at the wildly-bohemian Dil Pickle Club {sic} during the Chicago Renaissance -- forever changed the look of Fantasy and Horror with her alluring, sensationalistic covers for the legendary pulp magazine, Weird Tales.


Brundage, whose art contemporaries include Virgil Finlay and Hannes Bok, is unique as she was the first female cover artist of the pulp era.

Decades before the gothic fetish craze, Brundage's lush, provocative paintings, which frequently featured smoldering, semi-nude young women bearing whips, became a focus of acute attention and controversy. At the very peak of the notorious pulp's classic run, the magazine's appeal was due as much to Brundage's covers as to the stories inside by famous authors H. P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, Robert Bloch and Conan creator, Robert E. Howard. Long before Frazetta, it was Brundage who was the very 1st Conan cover artist. The Alluring Art of Margaret Brundage is the premier book devoted to this noted artist and features all of her Weird Tales and Conan covers.

Additional and alternative press notes that you may enjoy reading:

Margaret Brundage was an innovator who created a hybrid between Pin-Up, Fantasy and Horror art. Long before Frazetta, it was Brundage who was the 1st painter of Conana. Half of a revolutionary couple who met at the wildly-bohemian Dil Pickle Club {sic} during the Chicago Renaissance, Brundage forever changed the look of Fantasy and Horror with her alluring, sensationalistic covers for the notorious pulp magazine, Weird Tales which, featured stories by H. P. Lovecraft, Robert Bloch and Robert E. Howard. Her lush, provocative paintings of smoldering, semi-nude women bearing whips instigated acute controversy in the 1930s. While the "Queen of The Pulps" has endured as an elusive figure for eighty years, this lavishly-illustrated tome is the premier compendium devoted to the mysterious ground-breaking artist; features all of her Weird Tales and Conan covers; and reveals for the first time ever, her radical "Secret Life."
