Suntup Editions To Release The Fine Press Limited Edition Book 1984 By George Orwell 

Originally published on June 8, 1949, George Orwell’s 1984 is a dystopian masterpiece of tremendous influence and enduring relevance. Orwell’s nightmare vision for 1984 is of a totalitarian world dominated by Big Brother and the Thought Police, which persecute independent thinking. Orwell’s world is one in which the news is manufactured by the authorities, no one is free, and individuality is obsolete.

George Orwell

1984 was the ninth and final book George Orwell completed in his lifetime.  Parallels have been drawn between its subject matter and real-life instances of totalitarianism, communism, mass surveillance, and violations of freedom of expression. The novel uses several terms that have entered common usage in the English language including Big Brother, doublethink and thoughtcrime.

American literary critic Lionel Trilling said of Orwell’s classic, “1984 is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present.”

The novel has been included in Time magazine’s 100 Best English-Language Novels, the Modern Library’s 100 Best Novels, and on the BBC’s list of the 100 Most Influential Novels. On January 25, 2017, the book broke new ground when it suddenly appeared at the #1 spot on Amazon’s bestseller list, an unheard-of occurrence for a book published 68 years prior.

Though the year 1984 now exists in the past, Orwell’s novel remains an urgent call to become aware of the assaults on our personal freedoms, and to defend humankind’s most precious right: the freedom to have our own thoughts.

Suntup Editions To Release The Running Man Covers Collection Print By Don Brautigam

Suntup Editions presents another fantastic print from artist Don Brautigam to The Covers Collection. Previously, they have published Brautigam’s cover art from The Stand, Night Shift, Skeleton Crew, and The Bachman Books. This month, we are delighted to offer the art that appeared on the 1st edition cover of The Running Man.

Following Don Brautigam’s work on the 1980 paperback release of Stephen King’s novel The Stand, it is no surprise Signet Books sought out Brautigam for The Running Man, the fourth novel published under King’s pseudonym Richard Bachman. Published in 1982 as a paperback original, first editions of The Running Man are highly coveted. To find one in fine condition is a true rarity, making it nearly impossible to appreciate Brautigam’s magnificent work.

Suntup Editions Announces The Fine Press Limited Edition of The Lottery By Shirley Jackson

Originally published in The New Yorker on June 26, 1948, Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery is one of the most controversial short stories the magazine has ever published, and has since been described as one of the most famous short stories in the history of American literature.

Shirley Jackson

Set on a beautiful Summer day in a rural farming community as villagers gather to observe an annual ritual in the town square, The Lottery portrays most townsfolk as demonstrating a mob mentality who abandon all reason. Written immediately after World War II, Shirley Jackson’s story is a cautionary tale, depicting the dangers of following traditions without thinking of the consequences, and the dark side of human nature.

Upon its publication, The New Yorker received more mail over Jackson’s chilling tale than any work of fiction they had ever published. Readers cancelled their subscriptions, citing the story as too “gruesome,” “perverted,” and “outrageous.”

Today, Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery is heralded as a symbolic tour de force, and one of the greatest achievements in the art of short fiction.

About The Edition

This fine press limited edition of The Lottery by Shirley Jackson is presented in two states and is limited to two hundred and seventy-six copies. The edition measures 6” x 9” and features an exclusive introduction by Laurence Jackson Hyman, son of Shirley Jackson and four new full-color illustrations by award winning artist Miles Hyman, grandson of Shirley Jackson. This is the first stand-alone limited edition of The Lottery, and both editions are signed by Laurence Jackson Hyman and Miles Hyman.

Numbered Edition

The Numbered edition of 250 copies is a full marbled paper binding with a printed paper spine label. The marbled paper is handmade exclusively for this edition. Endsheets are Hahnemühle Ingres and the edition is printed letterpress on cotton mouldmade Frankfurt Zerkall paper. The book is housed in a printed slipcase featuring artwork by Miles Hyman. ($350)

Lettered Edition

 

The Lettered edition is limited to 26 copies and is a Bradel binding with the front board covered in genuine shagreen stingray, and the spine and back board covered in black calfskin. Endsheets are hand marbled on acid free Fabriano Ingres. The edition is printed letterpress on handmade Twinrocker paper, our first edition to be printed on handmade paper; and is housed in a quarter leather clamshell enclosure with an Italian cloth cover.

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.
