Bolland cover for Carol Day book

In Dave Wright’s Carol Day Lance Hallam the publishers reprint the complete story (minus 3 episodes) from the original art, in the full size of the originals, a pleasingly large 17 x 5.25 inches. Their goal is to give readers an experience as close as possible to viewing the original art, and to provide a definitive presentation, as Wright and his art deserve, of one of David Wright’s very best stories.

Here are the highlights:

First, there is the full cover! The back cover image is an original illustration by David Wright, and the front cover image is by Carol Day super-fan and artist extraordinaire, Brian Bolland!

Second, this is the first time a comic strip story has been reprinted in its original size and format from the original art!

Third, to bring the character into the 21st century the publishers has commissioned a number of great contemporary artists to create their reaction to the character and story, and they think the resulting portfolio showcases some truly outstanding work by some of the best artists working today. You can see these now in the Carol Day by Today’s Artists.

Finally in addition to presenting the original art in its original size they also present scans of the complete art boards with all the marginal notes, editorial comments, revisions, etc. that characterise the art as physical objects.
