70sscifiart:

“In 1978, Rodney Matthews published Yendor: The Journey of a Junior Adventurer, a hard-back picture book featuring his distinctive paintings of “The Wild Country”, a fantasy world seen through the eyes of young Yendor, named after his son (Yendor is, of course, Rodney backwards). These paintings were accompanied by irreverent and light-hearted text written by Graham Smith, forming an episodic story about Yendor’s journey. Despite not featuring any coherent plot structure, this whimsical book achieved cult status amongst fanatics of fantastic art due to Matthew’s striking and surreal paintings.“
