Knowing Darkness announced

Feeling wealthy? Then visit the Sub Press website and order Knowing Darkness: “We’re pleased to be able to offer you one of the most impressive oversize art books we’ve ever seen. Knowing Darkness is one gigantic, overwhelming book. We’re handling orders for this one a little different than normal. We’ll be accepting orders for only $540 per copy, including US shipping, which is more than $350.00 off the normal retail price. Once our March 5 order deadline passes, we’ll pull Knowing Darkness from the SubPress site and place our order with Centipede Press. Please note that we regret given the size and weight of this book that we will only be able to accept US orders for it. We just can’t guarantee that copies shipped internationally will arrive in undamaged condition.

Finally, to make this an even better deal for our customers, the first 50 to order will also receive a Free copy of our own Stephen King Goes to the Movies, which features two-color printing throughout, as well as a number of full-color plates by Vincent Chong.

 This 448-page art book features loads of color and black & white artwork that has directly or indirectly illustrated the writings of Stephen King. The work has been culled from the last thirty-five years, and includes most all of the trade hardcover and mass market paperback editions, and virtually all of the artwork featured in the limited editions that have been published. For most of the art, we have worked from either originals or first-generation transparencies, so most of the work is displayed with a brilliance that has never been seen. Plus, there are several pages of fold-out views, including several by Michael Whelan, Ned Dameron, J.K. Potter, John Jude Palencar, Stephen Gervais, and others.

 The text, written by King critic George Beahm, looks back at 34 years of King in print. It provides a detailed look at the writer and his life, supplemented with interviews with Michael Whelan, Bernie Wrightson, Drew Struzan, John Cayea, Dave Christiansen, and many others.

 The traycased edition is signed by over 33 artists, including Michael Whelan, Bernie Wrightson, Mark Ryden, Dave McKean, Rick Berry, and many more. The deluxe is housed in a large traycase that holds the book, plus a second book of oversize extra prints.

 Deluxe: Two volumes housed in a custom traycase, signed by many contributors (but not Stephen King)
