Surge of the Wine-Dark Sea.
My first thought when I saw that Mythmere Games (well known for the Swords & Wizardry clone) had published a OSR artbook was "why"? I didn't think it was needed. I still don't think it is needed, but it sure is appreciated.
The cover art is probably my favorite piece (I can see why Rowena Aitken's piece was chosen for the cover). I was less fond of the pages that had multiple pieces of art... I want my art in its full page / screen glory Damn it! Still, I ooo'd and aweeee'd at the vast majority of the work. I'm already picking out pieces I want prints of. There better be prints! heh
My favorite pieces so far:
The Contentious Tower by Paul Jaquays
Opium Seller by M Kultra Studio
Untitled by Peter Mullen (the one with the open door)
E. Gary Gygax Commemorative by Stefan Poag
Astragard by Dirk Remmecke (this is my Greyhawk Map Flashback pice)
