Introduction by director Frank Darabont.
The Overlook Connection is pleased to announce the Centipede Press forthcoming publication of Knowing Darkness: Artists Inspired by Stephen King, with an original introduction by film director Frank Darabont.
In addition to the wealth of previously published artwork, new works of art have been commissioned especially for this book: Michael Whelan leads the way with a magnificent front cover, and a new interior piece illustrating The Dark Tower. The newly commissioned interior pieces include art illustrating "One for the Road" (Stephen Gervais), It (Bob Eggleton), The Shining (Douglas Smith), Salems Lot (John Picacio), Hearts in Atlantis (Les Edwards), Duma Key (Don Maitz), "The Lawnmower Man" (Jason Eckhardt), The Tommyknockers (Alex McVey), Black House and Cell (Zach McCain), "Weeds" and The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon (David Ho), and others.
Shot from the originals or the artists original color-corrected computer scans, free of distracting type or design, the artwork in this book is printed on heavy matte paper and varnished for protection. Every artistic medium is represented: scratchboard, oils, watercolors, pencils, collage, photographs, and digital art. The text, written by King critic George Beahm, looks back at 34 years of King in print. It provides a detailed look at the writer and his life, supplemented with interviews with Michael Whelan, Bernie Wrightson, Drew Struzan, John Cayea, Dave Christiansen, and many others.
Published in three collectible editions, all share the same text, art, and design.
This is going to be one of the most lavish Stephen King related books ever published.
