The publication of this seminal art book first brought to public awareness the visionary art of Rick Berry and Phil Hale. Going well beyond the roles of illustrators, they are considered innovators and artistic pioneers.
It is remarkable…that somehow out of the 'discontinuities of the unexpected universe' two of the most creative artists and best draftsmen I've ever seen should have met at the right time.
Berry produced the first digital cover paintings for trade fiction in the world. Hale's superb brush work garnered him so much attention that by age eighteen he was a pro in demand. Since then, both artists have gained a long list of awards and publishing credits as well as the admiration of fellow artists and what is now a legion of fans. Their works reside in collections throughout the world.
The signed and numbered slipcased deluxe edition of this 9″x 12″ art book has (in addition to the trade editions over 100 full color plates) an extra signature containing four custom duotones and offers the collector a rare piece of original art. Produced especially for the deluxe, is a signed and numbered lithograph (not photolitho!) from an edition of nine printed by Morlot, Paris.
