The most comprehensive book on Steranko to date. This limited edition is signed by Steranko.
"The massive book incorporates eleven detailed chapters of behind-the-scenes stories, historic documentation, personal anecdotes, and analytical insights about the controversial artist-writer-performer, and is annotated by J. David Spurlock and Angel de la Calle, with additional essays scribed especially for the book by a host of internationally-renowned authors, critics, and pop-culture writers, including Michael Chabon, the Pulitzer-Prize winning novelist of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.
"STERANKO: ARTE NOIR is the largest and most comprehensive collection of the controversial creator's work ever published, packed with classic, new, and rare art, including hundreds of color and black & white images spanning the full range of his career-from comics to book covers, trading cards to limited-edition prints, film production illustrations to movie posters-many never before compiled in book form.
"The hefty 8" x 10" volume features 200 pages of Steranko visual magic in a high-quality, perfect-bound deluxe format, printed on 80-pound coated matte stock with a heavy, full-color, laminated card stock cover with flaps, and housed in a hard-surfaced leatherette, crimson-foil embossed slipcase. Each copy has been personally autographed by Steranko.
"In July, 2001, Steranko was Guest of Honor at Spain's gala Semana Negra festival of the arts, a multi-cultural event, which ran for ten days and showcased the largest exhibition of his work ever shown in Europe, with well over 1,000,000 in attendance. In addition to functioning as a career retrospective, STERANKO: ARTE NOIR, sponsored by the Gijon Museum of Modern Art, also served as the show's exhibition catalog and was produced with bilingual text throughout."
