“Knowing Darkness: Artists Inspired by Stephen King” by George Beahm
This is an expensive and monumental book. Over 448 pages of illustrations based on Stephen King’s work from numerous artists: Michael Whelan, Don Maitz, J.K. Potter, Phil Hale, Dave McKean, Rick Berry, Drew Struzan, Mark Ryden, and many others. It includes almost all limited edition artwork ever published and several new artworks created just for this book. It is impossible to describe the amount of effort that went into creating it, everything looks amazing, from the prints to the beautiful design. The book is divided into three major sections: Early Art (1974-1984); Middle Art (1985-1995); and Current Art (1996-present).
“Knowing Darkness” is perfectly executed, and i can’t honestly imagine any King fan who wouldn’t want this book, it is worth every dollar.
