Line of Beauty review: “Stunning biography of Wendy Pini”

“Line of Beauty – the Art of Wendy Pini” has been out for a few weeks, and it has just received its best review yet.

Wendy Pini is most famous for Elfquest, but her artistic career spans fifty years of pop culture history, from weird lowbrow surrealism to yaoi pastiche. Line of Beauty isn’t just a stunning art book covering decades in and beyond epic fantasy, but a powerful yet curiously tentative biography, drawing together threads from a childhood in the Californian sticks to the poisoned promises of Hollywood.

You can read the entire text, along with several (sampled from several hundred) illustrations from the book, at Boing Boing.
