THE COMPLETE ELMORE VOLUME II, BLACK AND WHITE BOOK, IS NOW RUNNING ON KICKSTARTER!! DON'T MISS IT!!
I have found more than 600 drawings I’d like to include in this book, from rough sketches to finished drawings. Some are pencil, some are ink, and some are a combination. These span my full 40 year career, from my TSR days through last week! Some are sketches and drawings used as the basis for some of my more famous paintings, but many you've probably never seen before. This book, being the sister book to that first one, will be the same 9" x 12" size and encompass 256 pages. Depending on your pledge amount, you can own this book as a standard coffee-table hardback edition, or a deluxe leather-bound limited edition; as well as other bonuses, such as special prints, a Complete Elmore slipcase for both books, or even the original drawing used for the cover itself.
I want to make it clear that this book is being published by me, Larry Elmore, and is being assembled, packaged and shipped by only three people: my wife, Betty, my friend, Gary Triplett, and myself. Betty is an unbelievably hard worker when it comes to packaging and shipping these books. She’s a morning person, so she’s constantly pushing us to get an earlier start on each day and get done before midnight! Gary has been a special help with the editing and order fulfillment on my first Kickstarter project, the full-color Complete Elmore. He also helped me on my SnarfQuest New Adventure Kickstarter: The Plains of Sashaar, with editing, coloring, layout and order fulfillment. He is continuing to help me in all aspects of this project as well. Gary not only has a Master’s degree in IT, he also taught English as a professor at a Korean University for ten years and is currently writing his own series of fantasy books… all of which makes him a great editor.
The leatherback edition of this book is limited to 500 and is only going to be available through this Kickstarter. The standard hardcover edition of the book is being made available at a special Kickstarter price, but after the Kickstarter will be made available through my website (larryelmore.com) and conventions for the retail price of $75. I want to say one more thing, and this is very important to me. YOU are helping me realize my dream of bringing this collection of almost all my artwork, throughout my career, to you, my fans. You guys have been instrumental in my long successful career as an illustrator.
