With every book I publish, I create a very small number of "Publisher's Editions" – books that are signed but not numbered (marked with a "P" instead of a number) presented in a slipcase. I give these to family and friends, and usually keep the rest in my archive. Due to the number of requests I've received for Special Editions (which are now sold out), I have decided to sell a few of these "P" editions from my stash.
This edition features a full-color bookplate signed by Daniel Zimmer, marked with a "P" instead of a number, and is presented in a red slipcase.
* This new 2017 edition features 80 pages more than the 2009 edition!
William Reynold Brown (1917 1991) was a prolific American artist whose career embraced virtually every facet of the illustration field. During his life he produced work for the newspaper comics (Tailspin Tommy), perfected the concept of the cutaway engineering drawing for North American Aviation, painted covers for some of the first paperback books ever published, illustrated scores of magazines and magazine covers, and most notably produced over 300 movie posters for the motion picture industry. After his retirement from commercial illustration, Reynold found success as a fine artist, producing hundreds of oil paintings and drawings for the Western art market. This book presents a rich overview of Reynold Brown s entire career, and showcases hundreds of original paintings, drawings, photographs, and printed illustrations often in glorious full-page reproductions. Many of his most iconic movie posters are featured, such as Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Spartacus, I was a Teenage Werewolf, and many more. Signed and numbered bookplate, 9 x 12 inches, full-color, hardcover with dust jacket and slipcase. A massive 304 pages!
