Limited Edition Book: Dean Cornwell
-By Dan dos Santos
The Illustrated Press, the publisher responsible for 'Illustration' Magazine and the stellar 'Golden Age' book I mentioned here, are publishing a new Limited Edition book on Dean Cornwell.
There is already a book on Dean Cornwell's art called 'Dean Cornwell : Dean of Illustrators'. And although just about every illustrator I know already owns this book, it is unfortunately quite old. Originally published in 1978, most of the book is in black and white, and what is in color isn't reproduced very well.
This new book is looking like it may be the Dean Cornwell book we've all been waiting for. It will showcase over 260 works of art, all in full color, and most reproduced from the original paintings. If this book is anything like the other books the publisher offers, it should be a no-nonsense look at the artist's body of work, consisting of full page art and very little text.
Now for the bad news...
This hardcover book is limited to 1000 copies only, most of which have probably already been claimed.
If you are interested, I strongly recommend pre-ordeeing the title, as I suspect very few, if any, will be available come release date.
