The Art of Sherlock Holmes is a totally unique experience. Imagine fifteen of the finest artists in the U.S. creating art for some the best new short stories written by some of the finest Holmes authors in the world. Each artist has envisioned their version of one story specifically selected for them. All stories and art in one large, hardcover, coffee table presentation volume. This first edition features artists from West Palm Beach, Florida. Future editions will be USA wide, then global, with participating artists contributing from all over the world. 

The Art of Sherlock Holmes was conceived and curated by Phil Growick, himself a renowned Holmes author. 

Whilst we want to keep the final art that will appear in the book secret, here is a glimpse of two of the pieces from Anthony Hernandez (left) and Amber Tutwiler (right).

The fifteen pieces of art will be exhibited in gallery in May ahead of the book's publication where collectors will have the chance to buy the original art itself. 

The book will be available in two finishes - a standard colour edition, and a special edition produced on high grade colour printing stock.

The full list of artists and authors in the West Palm Beach edition is below:

Derrick Belanger, Anthony Hernandez, Phil Growick, Vicki Siegel, Mike Hogan, Tracy Guiteau, David Marcum, Terre Rybovich, Denis O Smith, David Teal, Spencer Perkins, Bobby Franano, Steven Philip Jones, Robert St.Croix, Jeremy Holstein, Eddie Mendieta, Nick Cardillo, Bruce Helander, Marcia Wilson, Lupe Lawrence, Richard Dean Starr and E R Bower, JR Linton, Mark Mower, Amber Tutwiler, Thomas A Turley, Nune Asatryan, Paul W Nash, Pat Crowley, Daniel D Victor, Andy Pereira 

Risks and challenges

There are thirty contributors to The Art of Sherlock Holmes so lots of moving pieces - but the editor and publisher are both experienced and everything will be lined up well ahead of schedule. We have a lot of support from the local city, gallery and the special broadcast on the launch is set up with key participants from all over the Sherlock Holmes world.
