The series explores the art used in the manifold publications of the vast Burroughs body of work for the past century and more, including the novels, comics and pulps! Mr. Tierney has worked hard to collect the art, from multiple sources, that decorated Mr. Burroughs's work for the past century. From the Boris Vallejo covers of the Tarzan novels to the P.J. Monahan covers for the early pulps back in 1913.
Michael Tierney as has been a student of the Burroughs material for years. "The Edgar Rice Burroughs 100 Year Art Chronology is not just a nuts and bolts reference book with dates and data -- there is also a narrative, actually several of them. The career and works of ERB and the artists who illustrated him are examined, as well as the histories of the printing, pulp, book, comic, and retailing industries that put them into the hands of readers."
When discussing the project, Stephen Chenault, of Chenault & Gray, remarked, "Burroughs has been a part of my life since I picked up Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar back in the mid-70s. Burroughs opened up a world of imagination for me...more than a world, a universe. This project is a no brainer. His many stories, from Tarzan's jungles to the Earth's core, are a part of the fabric of our culture, making this series both a piece of history as well as a part of popular culture."
