- Full Description
New York Times bestselling author and illustrator Tony DiTerlizzi has been creating children's books for nearly two decades. From fanciful picture books like The Spider & The Fly (a Caldecott Honor book), to chapter books like Kenny and The Dragon and the WondLa trilogy, DiTerlizzi imbues his stories with a rich imagination. With Holly Black, he created the middle-grade series, The Spiderwick Chronicles, which has sold millions of copies, been adapted into a feature film, and been translated in over thirty countries.
He teamed up with Lucasfilm to retell the original Star Wars trilogy as a picture book and his collaboration with acclaimed author Mo Willems created the bestselling The Story of Diva & Flea. The beginning of his storied career is showcased in Realms: The Roleplaying Game Art of Tony DiTerlizzi. He has been featured in Time magazine, USA Today, CNN, PBS, The BBC and The Today Show.
Here we have a lovely little booklet of his original pencil drawings, from cute topless barbarian girls, to creatures large and small. Also rogues, the devil, orks, sprites, dragon-slayers, fire-giants...all of Tony's fanciful creatures are on display here.
Our initial announcement of this had copies flying out of here--as popular as the very best sketchbooks we've handled. Because Tony was doing a show in Europe, it took us a while to get more signed copies on hand. With only 500 printed, we don't expect this to last long. Act promptly.
