Neil Gaiman is one of the best-loved authors in the world today, a true creative force in fiction, film, comics and television. Hayley Campbell's The Art of Neil Gaiman (Harper Design, $39.99) offers fans a rare look into Gaiman’s personal archives and tells the story of Gaiman’s artistic life in a gorgeous full-color, oversized volume. For the first time ever, Gaiman shares the contents of his personal collection, giving Campbell access to his vast oeuvre, including out-of-print works, abandoned projects, and other before-now unseen material.
Today, Gaiman has a passionate fan base numbering in the millions. However, few of these fans know how he became such an international sensation. The Art of Neil Gaiman gives readers unique insight into the evolution of his artistic career. Campbell brilliantly evokes the literary and comics scene of 1980s London and explores the pop-culture milestones of Gaiman’s busy, multifaceted creative life, providing context for the diverse strands of Gaiman’s career. She explores his
renowned storytelling talent, his uncanny knack for being in the right place at the right time, and his all-abiding, passionate drive to “make good art”–as he has famously said–in all he does.
The Art of Neil Gaiman chronicles Gaiman’s journey from jobbing book reviewer and magazine journalist to “cult novelist” to global cultural phenomenon. This beautiful book also explores Gaiman’s collaborations with visual artists, musicians, and film makers such as Mark Buckingham, Dave McKean, and Sam Kieth, among others.
This remarkable volume, replete with hundreds of gorgeous four-color illustrations, will be treasured as both a fascinating reading experience and as a true objet d’art.
