Emanuele Taglietti is an artist best known for the outrageously raunchy and lurid cover artwork he produced during the golden age of Italian comic books (or fumetti – literally “puffs of smoke”: an allusion to speech bubbles) in the 1970s and 80s. He painted more than 500 covers for such comics as Zora the Vampire, Sukia, Mafia, and 44 Magnum. Sex and Horror collects some of these paintings into an incredible book! Before becoming a comic book artist Emanuele was a film set designer who worked with Fellini.
