He Clasped the Dainty Page Close
As we approach St Valentines Day, I thought I would share with you one of my favorite Robin Hood illustrations. It is by Greg Hildebrandt and is titled He Clasped the Dainty Page Close.
I think it is absolutely beautiful. Many more of his stunning pictures can be seen in Unicorn's re-print of Mc Spadden's Robin Hood published in 1989 and at http://www.spiderwebart.com/
The Hildebrandt brothers are well known in the world of Fantasy and Science Fiction art. Greg and Tim were twins, born in Detroit, Michigan USA in 1939 and both became professional artists in 1959. Their combined work includes the first Star Wars poster, Black Sabbath’s Mob Rules Album, illustrations for The Lord of the Rings and countless comics. Sadly Tim passed away in June 2006.
