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.

Suntup Editions Announces Misery UK Covers Collection Print By Paul Bryn Davies

Suntup Editions announces their second print by artist Paul Bryn Davies in The Covers Collection. Last year, they had the honor of including Paul’s art from the first edition U.K. paperback cover of IT. This month, Suntup brings you his cover art from the first edition U.K. paperback of Misery. This iconic cover art can now be enjoyed for the very first time without cover text.

Stephen King’s novel Misery made its debut in June 1987, but it would not be released in paperback until 1988. Constant readers in the U.K. were treated to a very different kind of artwork upon the paperback release. Previous covers had featured either a typewriter, or a shadow of Annie across the wall, making Davies the artist who holds the distinction for first rendering Annie Wilkes.

One of the major differences between the 1990 film adaptation of Misery and the novel is the movie’s slow burn to discovering Annie’s insanity. In earlier parts of the movie, she is portrayed as wholesome, hospitable, and even demure, but from the very first pages of Stephen King’s novel, Paul Sheldon describes Annie Wilkes as “dangerously crazy… giving only one thing: a feeling of unease deepening steadily toward terror.” Davies depiction portrays the wide-eyed mania evident in Wilkes right from the start.
