"This book is a loving tribute to all of Basil’s fans.

They love the Monsters, this is for them," -Linda Touby


Linda let us know from the beginning, "this book is for the fans." As well as being Basil's wife, Linda, who is also an artist, they shared a studio, created, worked and traveled together. She generously provided full access to his studio, in New York City's upper west side, and many insights into Basil's life and his artistic process which we have included here. Linda lovingly tells the story of when she first met Basil - she wasn't yet aware of his work with Jim Warren. Basil was disillusioned with the industry and wasn't doing monster work anymore. It wasn’t until she attended a convention appearance with him (one he had to be talked into) that she realized the effect Basil's work had on generations of horror fans. "They loved his monster paintings and they loved Basil," Linda told us. Helping Basil return to painting and drawing monsters, reconnecting him to his fans, and giving us many more years of his art, is something she should be credited with.
