Jae Lee’s Artwork From Stephen King’s The Wind Through the Keyhole Limited Edition

Donald M. Grant is now shipping the limited Artist’s Edition of The Wind Through The Keyhole. Written by Stephen King and illustrated by Jae Lee, the surprise Dark Tower book (King was only going to write 7 volumes) joins Roland and his ka-tet as a ferocious storm halts their progress along the Path of the Beam. As they shelter from the screaming wind and snapping trees, Roland tells them not just one strange tale, but two – and in doing so sheds fascinating light on his own troubled past.

In his early days as a gunslinger, in the guilt ridden year following his mother’s death, Roland is sent by his father to a ranch to investigate a recent slaughter. Here Roland discovers a bloody churn of bootprints, clawed animal tracks and terrible carnage – evidence that the ’skin-man’, a shape shifter, is at work. There is only one surviving witness: a brave but terrified boy called Bill Streeter.

Roland, himself only a teenager, calms the boy by reciting a story from the Book of Eld that his mother used to read to him at bedtime, ‘The Wind Through The Keyhole.’ ‘A person’s never too old for stories,’ he says to Bill. ‘Man and boy, girl and woman, we live for them.’

Below are some gorgeous color and black and white illustrations rendered by Jae Lee that will only be included in the Grant limited edition.

  2. Jae Lee’s work is Brilliant! It truly compliments the story or stories, so to speak. I finished the book this past week – I am pleased to report that Sai King has not forgotten the face of his father. Dark Tower 4.5 is certainly worth your time.
