Graphitti Designs proudly launches their new, large-format hardcover book series. For the first time ever, Dark Knight fans and collectors will have the opportunity to see and own museum-quality reproductions of memorable Batman art as it was originally conceived by the artist. Special attention to detail from this veteran publisher makes this as good, if not better quality, than the popular IDW Artist's Editions.
Though it appears to be printed in black and white, most stories are sourced from high-resolution, full- color scans taken directly from the artwork. Faithfully reproduced, this replicates the look, feel and attitude of the artwork. Every page is reproduced at original size on heavy paper stock, capturing the artwork, stray pencil marks, whiteout, coffee stains and all. This volume is the next best thing to holding the original art in your hands!
This inaugural volume contains the covers and interior pages from Batman #515 through #525, minus the interior of issue #520, which Kelley did not draw. Stories are written by Doug Moench, with most pages inked by John Beatty.
Graphitti Designs is well known in the collectibles field for their ongoing T-Shirt lines...but many years ago, they were leaders in signed, limited editions of work by Moebius and others, as well as the popular James Bama Doc Savage Prints. This is to say that they (Bob Chapman) know all the ins and outs of doing a fine quality limited edition, and are very excited to be back in the game with this very special license to do DC's finest artworks. This is just the first release in what should be a fine new series of top-notch Gallery Editions.
