Artist Charles Vess writes to say:

My 200 page, hardcover art book, Drawing down the Moon: The Art of Charles Vess will be arriving in stores this December from Dark Horse Books. Chris Warner & Co. have done a lovely job of assembling this retrospective of my 35 + years working as an illustrator/comics artist.

…The book has been solicited and re solicited several times but this time its for real. I have in hand a complete set of proofs and, if I do say so myself, it looks beautiful!

The book is listed in latest Diamond Previews (August) on page #36(Item # Aug09 0029).

Vess has some preview images at his blog and, suffice to say, this is one “art of” book that is richly, richly deserved. Order your copy now.
