Looking for some good reference books

Would like some feedback on purchasing some good reference books on Frazetta and Wrightson.  I've looked at Amazon and I see alot of conflicting comments about some of the books, so I figured I would ask for advice here, from some professional OA collectors.  Anyway, please let me know what you are using, if your using.

I'm probably not the most objective source, because I love everything I've got...

Testament: The Life & Art of Frank Frazetta

Frazetta Sketchbook

Illustrations Arcanum

Rough Work

The Definitive Frazetta

 

The key is to find the best price available for any reference book.  Some are available on the Frazetta Museum site, for example, at cheaper prices than on Amazon/ebay.

This is a very good resource, once you know what you want: https://www.bookfinder.com/

For Wrightson, A Look Back is a pretty terrific book.

Also, the IDW Artist's Edition book on Wrightson is very nice too.

I use gettextbooks.com for these same kinds of searches. You can set price target alerts as well because most used book sellers are...overpriced.

 

With regard to Frazetta, do you want his oils, a mix of oils, pencils, inks and watercolors?
