The Count Down To The End! The End of Larry Elmore's Art Book Kickstarter

Yeah I'm a little late to this party but this is Larry Elmore we're talking about here. The grand master of science fiction and fantasy art work from now and the days of yore. He's been getting a monstrous kickstarter together for his work which spans over 40 years.
 This thing is going to massive and very impressive. The whole work is going to be over 304 pages plus. In his words
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!"

So to say I'm excited is pretty much an understatement. To say Mr. Elmore's art hasn't been an influence on my games is to deny the sun doesn't come up. But there is a cavot to this situation. You've only got thirteen more days to this great kick starter. There are a ton more details with this wonderful kick starter. Seriously I can't even begin to get into all the perks connected with this one. Go take a look for yourself right over HERE
