His recent show at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles is called “Passengers” and you can check it out HERE.

Also known as Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster, this film sees Godzilla ally with Mothra to take on Ebirah, a giant crustacean kaiju.

The Silence of The Lambs Posters By Laurent Durieux

Mad Duck Posters will release new posters this week for The Silence of The Lambs by Laurent Durieux! The artist had the following to say about his take on the modern masterpiece:

“The art captures the room of the girl found dead who was on the autopsy table at the coroner’s office with her back incised. Here I make an ellipse between two scenes that follow each other in the final part of the film, where Agent Starling understands by seeing the different elements observed in this piece (polaroids, wallpaper with butterflies, sewing machine, dressmaker’s dummy, and especially the dress in the closet which has the same two large diamond-shaped strips). She understands that this is a dressmaker who makes clothes out of human skins and then we find her at Buffallo’s house in the final scene, which is why we see Agent Starling approaching Buffallo’s house across the street…”

The posters go on sale this Wednesday, March 25th 2020 at 12PM ET! Click HERE to order.

Suntup Editions Reveals Fahrenheit 451 Jacket Cover Art By Michael Whelan

Suntup Editions has some exciting news to share with those who have purchased the Artist Gift edition of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, and for those who haven’t there are still a few available for purchase HERE.

You may know artist Michael Whelan from the incredible work he has created for book covers over the past 30+ years. Fans of our Covers Collection will undoubtedly know him for his iconic first edition cover art for Stephen King’s The Gunslinger.

For the Suntup edition of Fahrenheit 451, Whelan spent a long time researching the book. He read the novel several times, looked at as many previous jacket covers as he could find, and then subsequently spent many months  creating this painting.

As part of his study, there was a sentence from the novel which he focused on the most. It was a description of Captain Beatty’s slicker.

“…his massive black slicker flapping out behind, so that he seemed a great black bat flying above the engine…”

He took this as representative of what all the firemen wore because elsewhere the author describes all firemen as looking alike.

This description, along with Whelan’s vision of the firefighter’s military greatcoat as a symbol of dark and unforgiving governmental authority, combine to create what we believe is one of the most stunning covers of this book to date.

The Artist Gift edition of Fahrenheit 451 is $95, and is housed in a printed paper covered slipcase. The edition includes an introduction by Neil Gaiman, six full color illustrations by Julia Griffin, Ray Bradbury’s short story The Pedestrian and his novella The Fireman, which later evolved into Fahrenheit 451, and a 77-page bonus section on the history, context and criticism of the novel edited by Jonathan R. Eller. All copies are signed by Michael Whelan and Julia Griffin.

Suntup Editions To Release The Dark Half (U.K.) Covers Collection Print By Paul Bryn Davies 

Suntup Editions will release the third of seven stunning covers by British artist Paul Bryn Davies. The first two releases were IT and Misery, and now Suntup Editions will offer the art that appeared on the 1st U.K. hardcover edition of The Dark Half.

Stephen King wrote several books under the pseudonym Richard Bachman in the 1970s and 1980s. When it was revealed that King and Bachman were one and the same, he wrote The Dark Half, a novel about an author with a sinister parasitic twin, in part as a response to the outing. Hailed as “wondrously frightening” (Publisher’s Weekly) upon its release in October 1989, The Dark Half became a #1 bestseller. Unlike the 1st U.S. edition which featured a photograph on its cover, Constant Readers in the U.K. were treated to Paul Bryn Davies fantastic artwork depicting the mock gravestone of Thad Beaumont’s nom de plume, George Stark. Now his art can be enjoyed for the first time without cover text as a beautiful giclée print.

All prints are hand-signed by Davies, who has also created one of the best remarques in the series. Usually, remarques are reserved only for the first 20 large print subscribers, but Davies decided to also remarque the first 20 small prints.
