Suntup Editions Announces Covers Collection Skeleton Crew Print By J.K. Potter

Suntup Editions announces their latest addition to The Covers Collection, J.K. Potter’s incredible art from the limited edition of Skeleton Crew by Stephen King. Although the artwork did not appear on the cover of the limited edition, it has become so iconic, and indelibly associated with it, that Suntup Editions felt it deserved a place in the series.

In 1985, Scream Press issued a limited edition of King’s second short story collection, Skeleton Crew, featuring color and black and white illustrations by J.K. Potter. Only 52 lettered and 1,000 numbered copies were produced, making it a sought after treasure among Stephen King collectors. Potter’s depiction of the grim skeleton in a hard hat featured in glorious color became an instant fan favorite.

These prints are hand-signed by Potter, who has also created a Remarque on the first 20 large prints — five of which are available for purchase at the time of the release, so act fast on those.

Suntup Editions U.K. Edition of Pet Sematary Print By Gerry Grace

In July 2018, Suntup Editions launched “The British Invasion” series in The Covers Collection with artist Gerry Grace’s 1st U.K. edition cover for IT. This month, they are delighted to share another iconic Gerry Grace print, Pet Sematary. With all the anticipation surrounding the new film adaptation of this 1983 novel by Stephen King, Suntup Editions thought it an appropriate time to let this “cat” out of the bag!

This stunning artwork graced the cover of the 1st U.K. edition of Pet Sematary, a novel King himself thought might never see the light of day. Just a couple of years earlier, King had referred to the story as “too dark” to ever be published. It was only due to a contractual obligation to Doubleday that he agreed to unleash Pet Sematary upon the world, and in doing so created one of the most memorable and beloved novels in his canon. Gerry Grace’s visualization of King’s novel is a masterpiece, and as with all of our prints, you have to see this in person to really appreciate the fine details, presented here for the very first time without the cover text.

These prints are hand-signed by Gerry Grace. Exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection, and limited to just 50 signed copies per size, worldwide.

– Museum Quality Giclée prints.
– Signed and authorized by the original cover artist.
– Limited to only 50 copies of each size worldwide, plus 3 Artist and 3 Publisher copies.

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.

Exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection, and limited to just 50 copies per size, worldwide.

– Museum Quality Giclée prints.
– Signed and authorized by the original cover artist.
– Limited to only 50 copies of each size worldwide, plus 3 Artist Proofs and – 3 Publisher Proofs for private distribution.

Suntup Editions To Publish Fine Press Edition of Rosemary’s Baby By Ira Levin With Exclusive Introduction By Academy Award Winner Jordan Peele

Suntup Editions, publisher of fine limited edition books and art prints, is delighted to announce the upcoming publication of Ira Levin’s classic novel Rosemary’s Baby, with an exclusive introduction by Academy Award winning writer/director Jordan Peele.  

One of the bestselling horror novels of all-time, Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin is considered by many to be the “grand daddy” of horror fiction. Selling 4 million copies upon its publication in 1967, the novel’s success launched a new wave of books in the horror genre, while critics heralded it “one of the most perfectly crafted thrillers ever written.” Only one year after the novel’s release, Rosemary’s Baby was adapted into an Academy Award winning motion picture directed by Roman Polanski. Author Ira Levin called the film “the single most faithful adaptation of a novel ever to come out of Hollywood.”  

Ira Levin

When Rosemary Woodhouse and her husband Guy, a struggling actor, move into a mysterious old apartment building in New York City, they are immediately greeted by elderly neighbors Roman and Minnie Castavet. Guy is quick to make friends with the eccentric pair, but Rosemary has reservations. Soon thereafter, Guy lands a major role, Rosemary becomes pregnant, and the strange neighbors begin taking a heightened interest in Rosemary’s welfare. As Rosemary’s suspicions grow, she finds herself isolated from her husband, and certain that the Castavets’ intentions are not at all what they seem. 

In 2017, director Jordan Peele cited the novel Rosemary’s Baby among his greatest influences in writing Get Out for which he won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, along with nominations for Best Picture and Best Director. Peele has written an introduction to Rosemary’s Baby exclusively for this edition. 

This edition also features an afterword by Ira Levin, originally written for New American Library’s 2003 release. 

About The Edition

This fine press edition of Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin is limited to 267 copies for sale, and is presented in two states: Lettered and Limited. Both editions measure 6¼” x 9¼” and feature six black & white illustrations by Richey Beckett, as well as the introduction by Jordan Peele. Both editions are signed by Richey Beckett and Jordan Peele, and are printed letterpress.

Limited Edition

The Limited edition ($695) is a quarter leather binding and is limited to 250 copies for sale. The leather spine is foil-stamped, and the boards are covered in Japanese cloth. Endpapers feature flecks of metallic gold and silver, and the edition is printed letterpress on Mohawk Superfine. It is housed in a custom cloth-covered slipcase.

 

Lettered Edition

The lettered edition ($3,950) is limited to 26 copies for sale, lettered A-Z and is printed letterpress on Mouldmade Zerkall paper. It is a full leather binding with a foil stamped spine, and glass eyes inset into leather-formed eyelids on the cover. Endpapers are hand marbled in Germany on Hahnemühle Ingres paper. The edition is housed in a custom ‘bassinet’ enclosure with a unique rocking bookbed.

 

Since its launch in late 2016, Suntup Editions has garnered the attention of fans, bloggers, and journalists alike. Their stunning premiere project The Eyes of the Dragon Art Portfolio with Lettered and Numbered Editions signed by David Palladini, along with The Covers Collection, limited edition fine art prints featuring original cover art from the novels by Stephen King, made Suntup Editions the ultimate “one to watch” and one of the fastest rising new printing presses on the scene. 

In early 2018, Suntup Editions announced it would publish the world’s first limited edition of Misery, which was released with not only the blessing but bearing the signature of Stephen King himself. This was followed by the announcement of a limited edition of Shirley Jackson’s classic novel, The Haunting of Hill House, as well as a signed limited edition of Horns by Joe Hill. Rosemary’s Baby will mark Suntup’s fourth book release. 

The mission of the press is to publish finely crafted limited editions, by collaborating with some of today’s leading writers, artists, designers, printers and bookmakers to create an edition that is itself, an art object. By incorporating elements of the story into the design and production of the books, their editions offer a unique reading experience.

Publication is scheduled for Summer 2019 and will be available for pre-order at https://shop.suntup.press from 9:00 am Pacific time on Saturday, January 19, 2019.

Suntup Editions Firestarter Covers Collection Print By Michael Whelan

Last month, Suntup Editions introduced their first of two spectacular cover art prints signed by artist Michael Whelan, The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger. 

They are now delighted to reveal the Firestarter Limited Edition Cover as the second of their Whelan additions to The Covers Collection.

Published by Phantasia Press in 1980, the same year as the novel’s wide release, the limited edition of Firestarter features Charlie exhibiting her pyrokinesis power at full blast. This gorgeous painting predates the movie version by 4 years. Whelan used his niece Laina as his model, but many fans have commented on the girl’s similarity to Drew Barrymore.  The cover art for this edition so impressed Stephen King at the time that he personally recommended Whelan as the artist for the Donald M. Grant edition of The Gunslinger.

These prints are hand-signed by Michael Whelan, exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection. Limited to just 50 copies per size, worldwide.

Suntup Editions To Release The Covers Collection – The Dark Tower Print By Michael Whelan

Suntup Editions is very proud to introduce their latest addition to The Covers Collection. The first of two spectacular cover art prints signed by artist Michael Whelan, The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger.

This magnificent cover art graced the first US edition cover of The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger by Stephen King, published by Donald M. Grant in 1982. This is the second piece of artwork Whelan was commissioned to create for King. According to the author’s web site, King was so impressed with Whelan’s work the first time around that he suggested him for The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger, the first book in The Dark Tower series.

Whelan’s cover art depicting Roland and Jake in their escape from the Slow Mutants only appeared on 20,000 copies of the trade hardback — its first and second printings. By the third printing, the cover art was changed. The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger is widely considered to be one of the most sought after books by Stephen King collectors.

This officially licensed print went through several rounds of color corrections with the artist to make sure that it is as close to the original as possible. Now, you can enjoy Michael Whelan’s dazzling artwork presented here without cover text.

These prints are hand-signed by Michael Whelan and limited to just 50 copies per size, worldwide.

Suntup Editions Announces The Covers Collection – Night Shift Paperback Print By Don Brautigam

Suntup Editions has revealed another beautiful bonus print in The Covers Collection from the late Don Brautigam. This month, they have one of the highest anticipated and most requested covers, the art from the first US edition paperback of Night Shift.

The 1979 Signet paperback release of Night Shift features the first of many covers Brautigam would be hired to create for Stephen King. It is also one of his most iconic. The imagery of the eyes peering forth from the bandaged hand was inspired by King’s short story “I Am the Doorway,” which is included in this, his first ever short story collection.

A unique characteristic of the Night Shift first edition paperback is its stepback, or keyhole cover. Subsequent printings would reuse Brautigam’s artwork, but the first edition is identified by the outermost front cover’s “keyholes,” which open up to a full page color stepback graphic underneath. Now, this magnificent piece of artwork can be enjoyed for the first time without cover text as a beautiful giclée print — and you don’t even need to line up the eyes!

Exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection, and limited to just 50 copies per size, worldwide.

– Museum Quality Giclée prints.
– Authorized by Dan and Jim Brautigan.
– Limited to only 50 copies of each size worldwide, plus 3 Artist Proofs and – 3 Publisher Proofs for private distribution.
