From the publisher:
Open the cover of William Stout: Hallucinations and take a guided tour of worlds both familiar and unknown if you dare!
Taking his cue from Arthur Rackham and other legendary creators of early 20th century storybook illustration, a modern master of the visual arts--William Stout--presents his impressions of the strange and sometimes terrible inhabitants of the worlds of literature, cinema and popular imagination.
Freshly returned from his latest tour of far-flung and fanciful lands, the multi-award-winning artist presents illustrations that capture the very essence of the good folk and odd creatures who populate the dark woods and sun-filled glades of Aesop's Fables, who wander the wonder-filled roads of the Land of Oz or who tread the blood-red soil of the planet called Barsoom, which we know as John Carter's Mars. Be they animal, vegetable or mythic in nature, Stout's ink-and-watercolor images breathe vibrant life into crafty fox and humble scarecrow, terrifying sea serpent and deadly dragon alike.
The hardbound edition is limited to 500 copies. Exclusive to this edition is a bound in plate reproducing an unpublished illustration. Each copy is numbered and signed.
