Art, it’s good for you

The Art of Conan Sourcebook, review

This was originally written for The British Fantasy Society. Art inspired by genre fiction sometimes struggles to find an audience. It generally doesn’t hang in galleries, and the artists that create it aren’t necessarily well-known. While it won’t solve those problems, The Art of Conan by Modiphius is a compilation of the art from the entire Conan: Adventure…
