Kurgan, your English is great and the reading is extremely pleasant. I love all the personal and general information that you provide alongside every single piece.

The last two statues devoted to the American supersoldier close the first section of the Bowen Book... Next chapter is on Black Panther! I'm working on it now, hoping you're still interested!

Not sure about others, but I am enjoying every bit of this.
Keep them coming, this is envious stuff.

As announced, the second section of the BOWEN BOOK is devoted to my Black Panther statues. I love this character! Maybe for this reason I spent a lot of time in the attempt of creating a "worth" cover for him, by superimposing the images of a real panther and a sketch of a jungle with the elegant Museum Version...
The result gave me a great satisfaction! I believe Randy realized some amazing pieces for T'Challa, sure among the best ones in his vast catalogue. I hope you'll enjoy this section, as I had fun in writing and composing it! See you soon!

The third section of the Bowen Book is dedicated to the God of Thunder! Let's start with the introduction, the Thor Statue (one of the first production of Bowen Design) and a real masterpiece among all Marvel collectibles: the amazing Thor Museum...
The first two pages have a common background showing Asgard (you should imagine the two pages in a single shot!) and I really like the covers of these two items, showing a bright and "sunny" blue sky and some thunders on a purple sky! Again: sorry for my poor English, but this is really an hard work to me and I'm doing my best! Please, do not forget to provide me with any criticism and/or suggestion aimed at improving the book!

Great work Sandro. The time and effort you put in is really impressive and the end outcome reflects this. I think you've found another calling if you decide to quit your job.

I'd be interested in getting a copy of the book. Ill pm you my mail address.

Yes, I did. All the photos are mine. I use a Nikon D90 (an excellent digital camera) and for the close-up a macro lens I bought some years ago to photograph my minerals...

Thank you, bryanee. I like my job, but I admit that to take pictures of my loved Marvel statues is really fun... I'm noting a lot a visits to this topic and this is a great satisfaction to me! It is a hell of a job , but I believe it's worthwhile. The Bowen Book is a huge volume: I hope I'll be able to finish it. It could be a good idea also to translate my Sideshow Book and to share it here... We'll see!

If you take the time to translate the sideshow one I'd definitely take the time to read it.

This is the section devoted to the amazing Silver Surfer, probably my favorite Marvel character! Do not forget to leave me your comments, to suggest any correction and/or improvement and to be patient for my English... Enjoy!
