Suntup Editions To Release Don Maitz Desperation Covers Collection Print

Suntup Editions announces their latest addition to The Covers Collection, Don Maitz’s incredible cover art from the Donald M. Grant limited edition of Desperation by Stephen King.

King derived inspiration for Desperation during a cross-country drive in 1991. During his travels, the author visited the small desert community of Ruth, Nevada, and found it so desolate he thought the townspeople must all be dead. He began to wonder who might have killed them, and the thought occurred that the town’s sheriff had done so.

Don Maitz’s startling cover art for the Donald M. Grant edition features an image of Desperation’s crazed town sheriff, Collie Entragian — gun in hand and blood dripping from the mouth. Maitz’s work on the Grant edition is awe inspiring, but it was not without its difficulties. Some of the original artwork Matiz created for Desperation was stolen during transit to a fantasy convention and never made it to the publisher, causing the artist to create replacement works. In addition to this, King had changed a plot element that required Maitz to make last-minute changes to the art. The result, of course, is some of the most beloved art to have graced a King limited edition, with many collectors citing this particular cover among their all-time favorites. The Grant edition was published in 1996, the same year as the first edition.

These prints are hand-signed by Don Maitz, who has also created 20 different drawings, one for each of the remarque prints which will be assigned at random. Three of these remarque prints will be available for the purchase at the time of release.
