Drawing Down The Moon by Charles Vess

Drawing Down The Moon: The Art of Charles Vess

Introduction by Susanna Clarke

Dark Horse Books, Milwaukie, 2009

Borrowed from the library.

A beautiful book containing illustrations and drawings covering Vess’  long and successful career.  Drawing Down The Moon includes images from his collaborations with Neil Gaiman, Charles de Lint, Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling.

These images are very detailed and  intricate.  They have depth and an edge to them that is unexpected in most “fantastic” art.   I love Vess’ sense of color.  Visit Dark Horse to see more.
