The definitive Bok collection. Over 600 color and black & white illustrations. With an introduction by Ray Bradbury.
From the Publisher:
"With over 450 pages, and a large, 8 × 12 size, this collection covers the entire artistic career of Hannes Bok. Painstakingly edited by Joseph Wrzos, with essays and memoirs on Bok by Ray Bradbury, Stephen Fabian, and many others, this book features over 600 illustrations. Many come from the pulps and pulp covers. Our color section features all of Bok's known dustjackets and the largest collection of Bok paintings ever published, including many works that have never before been printed. Key works also feature detail views. Printed on heavy paper, with printed cloth panels, ribbon markers, and a printed cloth slipcase, the edition is limited to 200 copies for sale and is signed by most contributors. The book is printed using stochastic screening with five inks, resulting in unparalleled clarity and color reproduction."
Printed slipcase, ribbon markers, head and tail bands, image inlay on front panel, printed cloth rear panel, gorgeous black suede cloth.
The signed run of 200 copies sold out prior to publication, this copy is part of the publisher's overrun: the same book, the only hardcover version, but not signed.
