The Art of Neil Gaiman: The Visual Story of One of the World's Most Vital Creative Forces

by Hayley Campbell - £25.00  Ilex Press (2014)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781781571392 | ISBN 10: 1781571392

Novelist, comics writer, scriptwriter, poet, occasional artist Ė a master of several genres and inadvertent leader of many cults Ė there are few creative avenues Neil Gaiman hasnít ventured down. From unforgettable books like The Ocean at the End of the Lane and American Gods to ground-breaking comics and graphic novels like The Sandman and Violent Cases; from big screen fantasies like Coraline to small screen epics like Doctor Who; and from short stories to songwriting, stage plays to radio plays, journalism to filmmaking, and all points in-between, The Art of Neil Gaiman is the first comprehensive, full-colour examination of Gaimanís work to date.
 
Author Hayley Campbell, a close friend of Neilís since she was a small child, spent many months rummaging through Neilís attic to source the never-before-seen manuscripts, notes, cartoons, drawings and personal photographs for this book; these are complemented by artwork and sketches from all of his major works and his own intimate recollections. Each project is examined in turn, from genesis to fruition, and positioned in the wider narrative of Gaimanís creative life, affording unparalleled access to the inner workings of the writerís mind.
 
Utterly comprehensive, lavishly illustrated, The Art of Neil Gaiman is the fully authorised account of the life and work of one of the greatest storytellers of all time.
