I really like George Barr artwork. It has an expressive sense of wonder that is so important to making fantasy stories come to life. The beautiful elven encounter below works so well with its decorative border.
Stroll through Mr. Barr's website by clicking here.
And below, a tip of the hat to Lew Jaffe at bookplatejunkie.blogspot.com for sending over this nifty bookplate, quite some time ago, in response to a George Barr post.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, as I don't limit myself in the process of how an image is made. Images are my life.
