Sex and Horror, Vol. 3: The Art of Fernando Carcupino

Price: $36.95
Item Number: 66013
This is the third volume in the Sex and Horror series, which celebrates the publishing craze known as “fumetti sexy:" Italian adult comics and cartoons with a unique take on such genres as horror, crime, fantasy, history, and fairy tales. Their huge success in the 1960s and ’70s was due in part to their uninhibited mix of twisted humor, gory violence, and up-front eroticism, but the element that makes them so collectable today is their technicolor cover illustrations, rendered by classically trained painters. This book focuses on the work of Fernando Carcupino, famed not just for his comic work but his pinups, as well. 

Fernando Carcupino (1922-2003) was an Italian painter, illustrator, and comics artist. Carcupino studied art under Achille Funi at the city’s Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera. In 1946 he joined his friend Mario Faustinelli on the staff of Asso di Picche and became part of the so-called Venice Group. In the early 1970s, he produced covers of the weekly magazine La Giraffa, as well as several Edifumetto publications including VampirissimoFaibe Proibite, and I Sanguina. In 1983 he received the Cavaliere Ordine al Merito della Repubblica Italiana from the Italian government for his artistic merits. In 1999 he was also awarded the Caran D'Ache Prize at the Salone Expocartoon in Rome.
