In addition to being the first publication of the original black and white illustrations that were colored and greatly reduced, for the DARK HORSE publication, HELLBOY INTO THE SILENT SEA STUDIO EDITION takes you behind the scenes of how the book came to be, not only from the initial pencil sketches, but HOW do you draw another artists character? How much effort to put into preliminaries? And how the artist's life experience influences his artistic choices. Simply an AMAZING book! I cannot recommend it highly enough.

BOGEY BEASTS is a rare volume indeed, often reproduced but virtually never seen in its original state—I have seen one other copy and that was at the SIME MUSEUM in GUILDFORD. This mythical carnival-of-the-animals is often lauded as some of the artist's finest and most whimsical creations, comprised of fifteen ipen & ink drawings, llustrating the fifteen p"Jabberwocky-like" poems by Sime. A children's book really, with the poetry put to art and the piano music of Joseph Holbrooke. Not, it is not easy playing! Being a children's book, copies in decent shape are beyond rare.

An exotique tale, for a time thought written by Clark Ashton Smith, but soon after been proven , not to've been written by CAS. However it does exist with his name, and it will always remain a curious error of wishful bibliographic thinking. The introduction lays out the errant mythodology. The illustrations by R. J. Krupowicz would've suited Smith's exotique prose beautifully. The book is limited to 1250 copies and signed by the artist. I have a few remaining copies available at cover price. As new in d.j.

When I assisted in the gathering of some of the materials for this book I was at first very doubtful of the outcome, but I must applaud Jerad Walters' effort assembling the finest book that was ever done, and ever likely to be done, in presenting the majority of the artwork of Clark Ashton Smith; it is a remarkable book. Its popularity is evidenced by the fact that the book went O.P., in less than a year. Listed at the original in-print price. As new copies still in shrinkwrap. View more info
