....you may ask yourself. There are several reasons to have a Fred Pfeiffer presence on the web.
First, Fred Pfeiffer was an amazing artist and illustrator. It will be a pleasure to present his talent to a wider and unsuspecting audience.
Second, there is very little information out there on Fred Pfeiffer. Our aim is to rectify that oversight. I have been doing research on Mr. Pfieffer since 2007. I have had great resources of information, although not enough to paint a complete biographical sketch of the man. He deserves to be more well-known and not be regulated to obscurity.
Third, I want to find out other sources out there to add to my knowledge of Fred Pfeiffer and to discover more of his artwork. Since 2007, I have spent countless hours in used bookstores throughout the country going methodically through the bookstore and seeing if I can find another book with his artwork. When I first started my search, I only knew of the 13 (well, 14 actually) Doc Savage covers that he did. Today, I have almost 100 books that are graced by his artwork, which were found mostly by manually going through thousands and thousands of books. Of those, there are maybe 5 where I am not quite sure they are Pfeiffer's. I would also like to hear from others that own original Pfeiffer art. I have one piece from Advise and Consent, an Avon book published in 1972.
So, come along with Scotty Phillips and I as we share the information and artwork that we have compiled on Fred Pfeiffer. Thanks for looking!
