BIG, BIG news for any fan of the wonderful Larry Elmore! He has just started a Kickstarter fund raiser to bring us "Larry Elmore: The Complete Elmore Artbook (Hardback)" [link]
Here is what he says: "I want to bring to you a quality 300+ page full color hardback book containing most of my painted and drawn art over the last 40 years.
Your Fantasy Begins here!
I want to make available, through this project, the largest, most comprehensive collection of the very best of my art spanning my full 40 year career. Many of the images I will include in this tome are being re-mastered using the latest digital technology from original film, for unprecedented quality, and several pieces have never before been published or rarely seen. Interspersed among the images I will also offer you glimpses into my studio and creative process, including sketches and preliminaries, as well as share with you my autobiography, my artistic journey, and my stories. I will start from my earliest childhood drawings, and together we will journey through my challenges breaking into the industry and frustrations with commercial art, through my years working in games and on novel covers and ultimately to my latest personal works.
This hardback book will be 9" x 12" and encompass 300+ pages. Depending on your pledge amount you can own this book as a standard coffee-table hardback edition, or a deluxe leather-bound cover edition, as well as other bonuses, such as special prints, original hand-drawn sketches, or even the original painting used for the cover itself! Most importantly, you are helping me realize my dream of bringing this volume to you, my fans. Thank you in advance for your pledge!
Jenny again: We reached the first goal in 8 hours! Now there are stretch goals, he is offering more pages (and we reached that goal!), and next will be a set of 8x10" prints of the original D&D covers he did, and after that an additional Sketchbook collection. If you wait for it to be offered after the kickstarter fund raiser it will retail for about $80, for the fund raiser if you go in for the first level it is $49. HUGE savings! Please share with your friends! He has a Facebook event for it [link]
