I'm seeking scans of late 1950s British magazines that featured illustrations by Renato Fratini for a book that I'm writing. Fratini was prolific in the UK from the late 1950s through to early 1970s and is perhaps best known for his work on 007 film poster 'From Russia with Love'. Sadly, he passed away in 1973.
For my book I have amassed almost 1000 pieces across his commercial illustration work, posters (Italy and U.K.) and of course, hundreds of book covers. Some of Fratini's amazing work can be seen https://levergallery.com/pages/renato-fratini
He produced works for Fleetway in a range of publications (internal illustrations, comics and covers) and I'd be grateful if anyone can assist with scans, I will of course provide a credit in the book that I'm looking to publish in 2023 (50th Anniversary of Fratini's death). This book is being published with the blessing of his family:
- Top Spot Magazine (between issues 20 and 49)
The Sun 532 - 537 (others?) - Battler Britton http://splankblog.blogspot.com/2017/08/ ... itton.html
