LetterPress Publications To Release Revival Limited Edition Artwork Portfolio

LetterPress Publications has arranged with François Vaillancourt to collect all of his artwork from the LetterPress Publications special edition of Revival by Stephen King into an oversized Deluxe Artwork Portfolio.

The Revival Deluxe Artwork Portfolio will feature twenty pieces of artwork, including the alternative version of the car accident, which only appeared in the Lettered Edition, and the frontispieces for both editions. The art will be printed on 11 inch by 14 inch sheets of a fine 100# Linen cover stock, which is archival quality and acid free.

Each set of prints will be housed in a deluxe hand-made portfolio that is covered with the same material as the Limited Edition’s slipcase, making this the perfect companion to your book. There will be two colors of hot foil color stamping on the cover. The interior of the portfolio will be lined with an elegant material that combines the luxury of suede and the richness of velvet.

Personally signed by the artist and hand-numbered, these portfolios will only be produced once, after which all applicable production materials will be destroyed. There will never be a second run.

The retail price is $125, and the print run will be determined by the preorders received by LetterPress Publications and authorized retailers between March 9, 2020 and March 30, 2020. The orders will ship in August 2020.

Stephen King’s Revival Gets A New Collector’s Edition From LetterPress Publications

Revival, Stephen King‘s 2014 novel of faith and fury, is getting a new special edition as the first project from Brian James Freeman’s LetterPress Publications, complete with a new series of chilling illustrations and an introduction from the filmmaker who plans to bring it to the screen. The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone penned the new preface to hail King’s story of a preacher who experiments with elemental powers to bridge the gap between the living and the dead.

The collector’s version will sell for $125 and includes 16 new full-color illustrations by artist Francois Vaillancourt.

This is going to be a beautiful special edition in terms of production: leather binding, genuine crafted spine hubs, two-color interior printing, tons of full-color artwork, a sewn-in satin ribbon page marker, marbled endpapers, deckled page edges. The books will be housed in custom-made slipcases wrapped with imported woven cloth and stamped with two impressions of colored hot foil.

The book is available for pre-order now via the following  indie retailers and publishers:

Revival tells the story of Jamie Morton, a musician and recovering drug addict who crosses paths with the Rev. Charles Jacobs, who begins joining his religious fervor with a cult-like passion for science after his wife and child are killed. Healing powers give way to the possibility of resurrection, but in Stephen King’s world, the darkness always makes a comeback.

– Sixteen full-color illustrations by François Vaillancourt, including three fold-out illustrations measuring 14 inches by 10 inches
– An introduction by Josh Boone, writer and director of the forthcoming feature film adaptation
– Exclusive artwork created by Vincent Chong for the film development process

Special Production Features:

– Deluxe oversized design (7 inches X 10 inches) featuring two color interior printing
