Is there any way you can look at a few images of this lyrical, imaginative art and NOT want to look at it full size in a form you can savor?

When we ran the Wimpy Kid press release yesterday about the fourth book in the series having a 4 million copy lay down, someone pointed out to us that Wimpy Kid has been — and still is — a free webcomic, available to all. Hasn’t hurt sales.

As for the Vess art book, it contains:

Verdant fairy forests. Whispering mountains. The fallen towers of ancient kings. Spirit-filled lakes. The distant strains of elven bards. For over thirty years, the fantasy art of Charles Vess has been acclaimed worldwide, his rich palette, striking compositions, and lavish detail second to none in the field. Vess has been the illustrator of choice for countless publishers and writers, including Neil Gaiman, Susanna Clark, and George R. R. Martin. Embodying the timeless approach of the golden age of illustration, Vess’s work is both breathtakingly singular and yet recalls an era when paint and brush were the vessels that carried readers of all ages to distant lands, bygone ages, and realms of the imagination

.
Drawing Down the Moon goes on sale in December and sells for $39.99.
