Graffito Books of London has announced that The Zombook, an art book devoted to zombies, is nearly complete, and the book will be available worldwide on September 24th. We have all the details you need along with a few sneak peeks.
From the Press Release:
Once more the worlds of movies, computer games, design, lowbrow, and tattoo are experiencing a resurgence of interest in zombies, and this collection presents an incredible array of contemporary art of the undead. A riot of energy, imagination, and colour, this is the book that every zombie aficionado will want to own, as well as being a fantastic source book of ideas and inspiration for artists, animators, and games creators. It includes paintings, graphics, cartoons, illustrations, movie models, movie stills, designs from CGI animation, and 3D.
Curated by renowned zombie expert Allan Graves, The Zombook presents the work of over 100 artists in one magnificent volume. Publisher Ian Castello-Cortes said, “We think artists of this calibre need the best possible print and production quality, and the book I hope will be all this and more. We’re printing on fantastic 176gsm art paper – that’s really thick – and the 256 pages will be stitch-bound and hard-backed. The jacket, a spectacular, eye-popping design by George Campise, will be gloss laminated and embossed. I think everyone who loves zombies will want to own this iconic book.”
The book is divided into 13 stunning sections:
“Our ambition for the book is to showcase a worldwide view of the zombie genre…, ” says Allan Graves, “all the different aspects shown through art and graphics.”
The 100+ artists featured come from the USA, Canada, Japan, UK, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Russia, Indonesia, Argentina, and more.
