Buck Rogers Books

Buck Rogers Books, 36 x 30, oil on cradled board, detail

This is a detail of my painting  Buck Rogers Bookst. The painting will be shown at  CK Contemporary Gallery.

I love books. I collect books. I have lots of books. Oddly enough, I rarely have books in my paintings.

As a first step in remedying the situation I gathered up my Buck Rogers Big Little Books for this painting.

Buck Rogers first appeared in Phil Nowlan's science fiction tale titled Armageddon—2419, published in Amazing Stories in August of 1928. The Big Little Books were published between 1933 - 1943.
