‘The Art Of Goosebumps’: This New Book Collects All Of The Original Covers
The original run of 'Goosebumps' cover art will now be featured in all new collection.
The absolute coolest thing about the original run of Goosebumps books were never the stories themselves. Sure, some of the books had spooky and memorable plots, but what made R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps series so iconic were those wild covers. If you don’t have those bad boys ingrained into your psyche, you did the 90s wrong.
Well, 90s kids, good news arrives just in time for the holidays. The artwork featured on the original run of books has been collected by Dynamite Entertainment. That’s right, all of those sweet Tim Jabobus covers will be collected in one place.
The all new book, Beware: The Art of Goosebumps will hit the streets on November 30th from Dynamite Entertainment and editor/writer Sarah Rodriguez,. Better yet, you can pre order the beautiful tome right now by visiting Amazon.

Here a few tantalizing excepts from the project:
“Featuring tons of fun facts about the series alongside a walkthrough of all books and covers in the Goosebumps collections, this art book is a must-have for old and new fans alike!”
“In the summer of 1992, Scholastic tasked two terrifyingly talented artists with creating the cover paintings for the books that would premiere the Goosebumps series. Stine’s particular brand of humor-tinged horror. One element that was sure to catch the attention of little eyes everywhere was striking cover art. And, boy, did they find it!”
“The imagery provided by the covers of the Goosebumps series is part and parcel to the 90s Kid zeitgeist, helping to create a visual brand for R.L. Stine’s smash-hit horror series. The covers helped set the tone for the numerous adaptations of the series, including a television series, a theatre experience, and, more recently, blockbuster films!”
