Our Highest Recommendation. By Katherine Roeder. A master of storytelling, one of the most unique voices in creating wordless picture books, and three-time winner of the Caldecott Medal, David Wiesner (b. 1956) is one of the most highly acclaimed book illustrators in the world. This handsome volume is the first to examine his creative process and his many sources of inspiration. The book features dozens of lavish color plates, from early work to the exquisitely wrought watercolors that are the basis of his best-known books, along with pages excerpted from his first graphic novel, Fish Girl. Yale Univeristy Press, 2017...More.

Hard Cover - No Dustjacket, 12x10, 112pg, Full Color

Sunday Pages, 1967-68. Highly Recommended. By Hal Foster. Introduction by Greg Hildebrandt. Val joins a caravan into the desert to try and ransom Sir Gawain from a nomad chief, but ends up a slave himself and endures torture and deprivation. His son Arn goes on his own adventure and meets a lovely young girl who is also a spy for invaders. And there is much more here, love triangles, slave rebellion, greedy governors...Introduction by acclaimed fantasy illustrator, Greg Hildebrandt, and a lavish 14-page back-up article on Foster attending the 1939 Mardi Gras and its influence on the next Val story! Fantagraphics, 2017...More.

PRINCE VALIANT 1-3 Slipcase Set
1937-42. Our Highest Recommendation. By Hal Foster. Hal Foster's Prince Valiant is one of the most magnificent adventure comics ever and Fantagraphics' reprinting, from rare original syndicate proofs, is today the finest treatment of the strip in the history of publishing. Despite being one of their most popular series, they never produced a holiday gift box set--until now. This deluxe package includes the first three volumes of the series, collecting the first six years of Foster's run, from 1937 through 1942, enclosed in a stunningly illustrated slipcase with different illustrations front and back. Fantagraphics, 2017...More.

Item Code: PVS01P
Hard Cover - No Dustjacket, 11x14, 336pg, Full Color
$99.99 $84.99

All previous volumes are currently available, Volumes 1-15 (except #5 which is out of print), at the same discounted price. See more Val on our website, or on the special page in our latest catalog. The Prince Valiant Studio Edition featuring Hal Foster's original artwork is already out of print. We have just seven copies left [PVSTH. $175], still at the original publication price. We've already sold seven this month, so I don't think these will last into 2018.
