Foreword by Susanna Clarke.
Verdant fairy forests. Whispering mountains. The fallen towers of ancient kings. Spirit-filled lakes. The distant strains of elven bards. For over thirty years, the fantasy art of Charles Vess has been acclaimed worldwide, his rich palette, striking compositions, and lavish detail second-to-none in the field. Vess has been the illustrator of choice for countless publishers and writers, and is perhaps best known for his collaborations with bestselling author Neil Gaiman, including the illustrated novel Stardust, whose major motion-picture adaptation from Paramount Pictures launches in Summer 2007.
This magnificent oversized hardcover edition is the ultimate presentation gallery for Vess' stunning visions, and will never again be available in hardcover. Drawing Down the Moon is must for any fantasy art enthusiast and is a terrific addition to the Dark Horse Books line of deluxe illustration collections.
