Acrylic - 30 1/2" x 22"
For over thirty-five years, the fiction of Stephen King has thrilled readers all over the world. Many of the genre’s best artists have tackled his novels and stories, ranging from hardcover and paperback art to intricate limited edition paintings and drawings. For the first time, the best of this work has been assembled in one book— a stunning, oversized, full-color tome with over four hundred illustrations. It includes 99 percent of all limited edition artwork ever published, many of the pieces previously available only as expensive collector’s items. Artists include Michael Whelan, Don Maitz, J.K. Potter, Phil Hale, Dave McKean, Rick Berry, Drew Struzan, Mark Ryden, and dozens of others. The book also features a new introduction by director Frank Darabont (The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption).
In addition to the reprinted artwork, there are several new artworks created just for this book. For starters, Douglas Smith (artist for Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West) provides two color wood engraving interpretations of The Shining, and Michael Whelan delivers his penultimate statement on The Dark Tower. There’s a lot more.
This is the ultimate art book dedicated to the supreme master of horror.
