Preface to the Third Edition


This third edition was done by scanning the second edition (published by Ted Pauls at TK Graphics in 1974) into a computer. All known errors of the previous edition were corrected and material accumulated since 1974 added. I wish to thank the many fans who helped with additions and corrections, especially T. G. Cockcroft, Chester Cuthbert, Dan Steffan, Donn Albright, Stewart Sayah, Robert W. Chambers, David Bates, and others whose names I neglected to record.


This third edition was completed in May, 1994. It will be bound with the covers left over from the first edition of 1970. The calligraphy on the cover is by Alpajpuri (Paul Novitski).

Preface to the Last Edition

This last edition was completed in September, 2012, as a printout of the version online. It will be bound with the covers left over from the first edition of 1970.




This Index is intended to catalog all known artwork by the renowned science-fantasy illustrator, Hannes Bok, that has been published. No attempt has been made to cover unreproduced items, whether privately owned or in museums. Nor has any attempt been made to trace the published illustrations back to an original.


The great bulk of Hannes Bok's illustrations appeared in the science-fantasy magazines of the 1940-1950 period. Also of importance, however, is the work he did for books, mostly dust-wrappers, a number of sets of prints intended for framing, and a considerable number of drawings for amateur magazines in the science-fantasy field (referred to herein as `fanzines'). A number of miscellaneous items such as bookplates and a calendar are also catalogued.


It is felt that the magazine and the book listings are very nearly complete, though on a few items a lack of complete information is noted. It is difficult even to make an estimate of the completeness of the fanzine and non-science-fantasy listings.


Hannes Bok's style is extremely original and distinctive, but due to the poor quality of the reproduction in the magazines printed on `pulp' paper, there is some doubt about the origin of some small uncredited and unsigned drawings. Such uncertainty on the part of the compiler has been noted in the listing. A small number of drawings signed `Dolbokov', which are known to be collaborations between Hannes Bok and another well known illustrator for the pulp magazines named Boris Dolgov, are listed separately.


The compiler gratefully acknowledges the aid of other researchers and collectors too numerous to list. I must mention particularly, however, Emil Petaja of the Bokanalia Memorial Foundation, who wrote the excellent biography of Hannes Bok, And Flights of Angels.


It is hoped that all errors and omissions will be reported to the compiler. Now that the material exists as an ascii computer file, corrections and editions will be easy to make. Anyone sending in a documented correction or addition will recieve a corrected version. Address:

Nov'63-V25#5 - A Rose for Ecclesiastes, Roger Zelazny: wraparound cover (also sold by publisher without overprint text)

[Courtesy Brad Verter:
Bok to Gaughan, 12/14/63:
"F&SF  Cover original & cover
PRINTS (the unlettered & the lettered ones) are so different from original
that it's like Isabel [Ashley] talking to a new acquaintance & her tone
when she's talking to merely ME. Hence anybody's liking printed version
is not apt to set well with me. I have original framed beside my bed & can
glare at it & cuss it out many times per day.  I like the RESULT but I just
don't cotton to so much work for such horrendous (non-) reproduction.
"However, thank yew for them inspiring words [presumably about the cover]
& 'tis a Geoghan from Blarney yez are."]

Bok's annotations in THE BLACK WHEEL:
Front endpaper inscription:  "For Isabel and Harry [Ashley] with
thanks for their suggestions -- it took nine months to give birth
to this baby, and they were wonderful obstetricians. Hannes Bok, April 21, 1948"
p.32, bottom:  "One page yanked out, by Judy O'Connor & Marty Greenberg,
because it was Merritt's notes for furthering the story and they couldn't
make sense of it -- thought it was all a printer's mistake."
p.33, top: "And here Mr. Bok takes over" with arrow pointing down to Ch. 8.
p.82, first column, 6 lines up from the bottom, there is an asterisk
after the line, "'First-footing?' I repeated."  At the bottom of the
page is the following:  "* First-footing, courtesy of Isabel (though
I'll bet she'll yelp that I got it all wrong!)  Thanks, keed."
p.95, first column, there is a bracket in the left-hand margin
extending from the fourth paragraph (beginning "Henderson happened
along...") to the end of the sixth paragraph (ending "...soon to be
opened to us."), along which is written:
 "Dialog: courtesy of Harry Ashley -- thanx, bub." ]

In my opinion the illustration on p.77 is not by Bok, but Stewart Sayah points out that it is on p.5 of Spinner of Silver and Thistle, so Emil Petaja thought it was by Bok and he should have known. And Damon Knight denies that it is his, even though it appears to be signed `K'.

III: Artfolios (listed chronologically)


`Engels' Folio - A set of six b&w prints published in New York in the 1940's. Stewart Sayah kindly sent me a copy of this. Jean Engels' name is apparently associated with it because she arranged for it, but her name does not actually appear on what I have. The cover sheet simply says `Hannes Bok / Folio' in a blocky art font, and below in small print `Published by Samuel English, 233 West 42nd Street / New York 18, NY'. There is no date or copyright notice, but two of the plates are dated 1946. In March 2007 I got an original set from Matthew Samton, a nephew of Jon White.


The Powers lithographs - A set of four lithographs printed in 1945 entitled `The White Powers', `The Black Powers', `The Grey Powers', and `The Primal Powers'. Reprinted original size by offset in 1969 by the Bokanalia Foundation.


Utopia Publications - A set of ten prints first announced in 1947 but not distributed until 1948. The cover is not by Bok. Utopia Publications was directed by Charles McNutt (who later changed his name to Charles Beaumont) in Los Angeles. The plates are 8.5x11 inches with borders, except for the first two on sheets about 7x8 with no border. Originally  advertised at  $1.50. They were used with: The Haunted Hour, Weird Tales, Nov'41, p.105; The Yellow Sign, Famous Fantastic Mysteries, Sep'43, p.130 (the `hidden faces' picture), dated 1943; Girl and moth-like creature, Journey's End, Super Science Stories, May'43, p.118, dated 1942; Crouching bat-winged figure with dog-like creature in foreground, Something Out There, Weird Tales, Jan'51, p.50, dated 1940; humanoid in conventional suit, playing wind instrument while holding mouse with spectacles on his right palm, Jitterbug, Stirring Science Stories, Jun'41, p.48; Man in conventional dress seated on stone block reading book, with winged serpent, said to be a portrait of Bob Tucker (also appears in the artfolio in And Flights of Angels) dated 1947 - but the same image with the name `Jack Grubel' on the stone appears as a bookplate; feline humanoid with bow on tail reading from long scroll; woman threatening antennaed humanoid with mouse sitting on her palm, Stone Men of Ignota, Future Fiction, Aug'41, p.69; female figure probably symbolizing the wind; nude female figure and four demons, dated 1945-1946. Note: Roy Squires offered for sale a copy of this artfolio with an eleventh plate. This plate shows a string of bubbles and cylinders trailing off from a group consisting of two winged humanoids and three jointed-armed robots, said to be titled `Space Junk'.


Fantasy Folio #1 - Fantasy  Fotos: This is mentioned in the September 3, 1949 Antiquarian Bookman (p.464) as being for sale for $5. The plates were actual photographic prints taken by Emil Petaja from Bok paintings and are 5x7 and black and white, but some were on tinted paper.


Prime Press--The Blind Spot/The Spot of Life: A set of prints, about 9.5x6, of which 150 were published in Philadelphia in 1951, by the Prime Press. Six of the plates are the same as the interior illustrations in The Blind Spot (see book listing), while the other four were apparently intended for The Spot of Life, a sequel to The Blind Spot, announced by Prime Press but never actually published by them. One of each set of prints is signed.


Sketchbook - A set of fourteen pages of sketches photocopied from a sketchbook of Hannes Bok's now (1970) in the possession of Jack Gaughan, plus a photograph of Bok. Published jointly by the National Fantasy Fan Federation and the Institute for Specialized Literature, and printed by Wally Gonser in Seattle in 1967.


Bokanalia Foundation - This non-profit foundation headed by Emil Petaja has published five artfolios and two single prints, and has announced the publication of a set of color prints, all from San Francisco:


Artfolio #1 - A set of fifteen prints, mostly reprinted from the pulp magazines of the 1940's, all are 9x12 inches: Wings of the Lightning Land, Astonishing Stories, Nov'41, p.11; The Colossus of Maia, Cosmic Stories, Jul'41, p.45; The Counter Charm, Famous Fantastic Mysteries,  Aug'49, p.111; The Outsider, Famous Fantastic Mysteries, Jun'50, p.115; Thirteen O'Clock, Stirring Science Stories, Feb'41, p.70; The Golden  Road, Stirring Science Stories, Mar'42, p.34; The Goblins  Will Get You, same issue, p.47; Masquerade, same issue, p.50, Terminal Quest, Super Science Stories, Aug'51, p.36; The Sorcerer's Ship, Unknown Worlds, Dec'42, p.53; The Sandwin Compact, Weird Tales, Nov'40, p.43; The March of the Trees, Weird Tales, Mar'42, p.48; Black giant pushing button signed `Hannes  Bok  1939'; Girl emerging from flames  from The Thinking Cap, Other Worlds, Jun'53, p.131; Mechanical man seizing the arm of a winged man.


Artfolio #2 - A set of fifteen prints, most 9x12 inches, four of them slightly smaller. Included is `A Remembrance' by Ray Bradbury: Small crested humanoids in fantastic jungle printed in color on Dec'68 IF, It's a Young World, Astonishing Stories, Apr'41; Pickman's Model, Famous Fantastic Mysteries, Dec'51, p.89; Cross of Mercrux, Fantastic Novels, Nov'50, pp.94-95; War God's Gamble, Fantastic Novels,Jun'51, p.95; Song of the Sirens, Fantastic Novels, Jun'51,p.53; Desert Dweller, Weird Tales, Jul'43, p.71; The Nervina, The Blind Spot, facing p.41; Statue holding girl, The Fox Woman/The Blue Pagoda, p.93; six more prints, probably previously unpublished. The earliest date is 1937, and is an obvious attempt to imitate Beardsley's style.


Artfolio #3 - A set of twelve prints, all but one 9x12 inches, one slightly smaller. An accompanying sheet gives names for four of the plates: Wild Madge, The Mermaid, The Snowman, and Mr. Mouse; this sheet also reprints nine small rough sketches: Wild Madge (with wings, flying amidst clouds); The Mermaid, The Snowman (shows the influence of Maxfield Parrish); Mr. Mouse (which turns out to be the February 1950 Gnome Press Calendar plate, titled `Helping Cousin Groundhog Find His Shadow' there); Puppeteers, The Black Wheel, p.89; The White Folk, The Black Wheel, p.107; The Black Horse, The Blind Spot, facing p.186; The Sorcerer's Ship, Unknown Worlds, Dec'42, p.26; To an Aztec Relic, Famous Fantastic Mysteries, Jun'52, p.91; The Three, Famous Fantastic Mysteries, Aug'49, pp.116-117; Boy-angel holding mouse; Large-eared creature at foot of slope, painted with coarse brush-strokes Single Prints - 10x13-inch print signed `Hans Bok 1939' shows man climbing large ugly humanoid statue; 10x12-inch print signed `Hannes Bok 1960', very similar but not identical to the `mandala' printed in Mystic, Jan & Jul'56


The Powers - A set of four prints, reproducing the 1945 set of lithographs Artfolio In And Flights of Angels - This set of twelve prints is on the same deckled paper as the book and bound in with the text: Ship before fantastic palace; Same as the sixth print from the 'Utopia' artfolio; The Giant, Stirring Science Stories, Mar'42, p.19; Man and woman amidst flames, one of the Spot of Life plates from the Prime Press artfolio; Master Of Emotion, Science Fiction, Sep'41, p.65, Deer in Forest, signed `Hans Bok'; The Unfinished City, Stirring Science Stories, Mar'42, p.60; Title page decoration for The Fox Woman, Cross of Mercrux, Fantastic Novels, Nov'50, p.103; Kazam Collects, Stirring Science Stories, Jun'41, p.102; Mr. Packer Goes To Hell, same issue, p.66; Girl standing under tree, signed `Hannes Bok 1946'


A Memorial Portfolio - Ten color plates, 8x10 inches, 1970, $12.50.  These are accompanied by a half-height 4pp pamphlet with a photograph of Bok and a list of the ten plates. All pieces carry a copyright notice. The plates are titled Starscape, The Jewel Rider and Others (part of this appeared on the cover of the Nov'53 Fantasy Fiction), The  Enchanted City, Cat-God's Captive, Martian Landscape with Geezilstines,  Siegfried Slays the Dragon Fafnir, Woman Wailing for Her Demon Lover, Strangers in a Strange Place, Alien Rider Under a Golden Sky, and Ase on the Hillock.


Gene Nigra did two artfolios -


Bok 1, 1975, limited to 750 copies. A small illo on the cover plus 8 page-size b&w plates, said to be full-size from the original art except for a slight reduction on #7. There is a list of sources and a reproduction of a `mouse' signature. The plates are - two from The Long Dawn by Noel Loomis (Jan'50 Super Science), two from  Shadow Over Innsmouth by H. P. Lovecraft (Jan'42 Weird Tales), The Outsider by Lovecraft (Jun'50 Famous Fantastic Mysteries), Terminal Quest by Poul Anderson (Aug'51 Super Science) War God's Gamble by Harry Walton (Jun'51 Fantastic Novels), Martian Fantasy by H. A. Ackerman (Jun'41 Stirring Science).


Bok II, 1975, limited to 1250 copies. There is a cover illustration and a rough on the title page, plus 9 plates, the last in color -  Another's Eyes by John L. Chapman (Jan'41 Super Science), Half Haunted by Gans T. Field (Sep'41 Weird Tales), two plates, one dated 1950, said to be previously unpublished, Interference by Walter C. Davies (Jul'41 Cosmic), Spot of Life, intended for an unpublished sequel to The Blind Spot, The Man Who Didn't Breathe by Harry Walton (Nov'41 Astonishing), Treasure of Triton by Charles A. Baker (Spr'41 Planet Stories), Brigands of the Moon by Ray Cummings (Fal'42 SFQuarterly)


Twelve Erotic Drawings - color plates from drawings said to have been done in 1946. Unsigned except a `K. Zucker' said to be faintly visible on the original for the 12th plate. The originals are said to have been bought from the Joseph Dunninger estate c.1983 and the artfolio produced to offer them for sale at $24,000. Extremely lewd and in my opinion not very good, but the Bok style can be seen in places
