Dark Horse Will Publish Charles Vess Collection

vessgaimanstardustcoverDark Horse Comics has announced that it will publish a Charles Vess collection, spanning three decades of the acclaimed fantasy artist’s work.

Drawing Down the Moon: The Art of Charles Vess will compile the Eisner Award winner’s work in comic books, as well as his renowned paintings, which have appeared on the covers of books and in museum exhibitions.

“This book has taken a bit over two years from the completion of my initial layouts to actually seeing print,” Vess said. “So, in an effort to make certain that you know that the book will indeed be available this December, we are giving you a sneak peak of the entire 200 pages.

“Above all, there’s the unique opportunity to view all the projects that you’d never have a chance to see except in a book like this: a 16inch bronze sculpture, event posters for local organisations, private commissions and previously unpublished paintings done just for the pure pleasure of doing them.”

A Dark Horse spokesperson added:

“Vess’s art immerses readers into a place of such fantasy and grandeur, one hopes to stay forever lost in the beauty. His masterful use of paint and brush stand out in an age of digital design, harking back to the golden age of illustration.”

Drawing Down the Moon: The Art of Charles Vess will be available in hardcover in December.
