Ed Piskor: Fantagraphics Studio Edition HC
140 pages; hard cover; full color
This career overview of one of comics' greatest creators collects raw, un-retouched original pages from the best-selling series Hip-Hop Family Tree and X-Men: Grand Design, and includes commercial art, designs for a line of Public Enemy action figures, and much more. It features over 150 pages of exact facsimiles of the artwork sitting on Piskor's drawing table, at the exact size created, scanned in full color to showcase every detail in the artist's process - from blue pencil, to Wite-Out, to swaths of deep, inky blacks. Each piece is annotated by Piskor personally. It's like sitting in the author's studio! A must-have book for students, educators, and collectors.
