Praise for Dave McKean:
“Dave McKean has been a peerless an unstoppable force in the world of comics and graphic design for decades. And now, contained between these beautiful covers, is a thrilling tour of his entire career, his process and his art. This book is a must have for anyone interested in the cutting edge of comics and visual storytelling.”—Jeff Lemire (Black Hammer)
“My admiration for Dave McKean has many facets: as an artist, as a storyteller, and as an innovator. He revolutionized the illustrated book narrative with his multimedia use of real objects, art, and photography collages, and elaborated some of the most amazing box art to present entire worlds on a cover, a single page, or a sequential art layout. He is an emblematic, powerful artist, and his unique style stands as a landmark in multiple mediums: Film, photography, and graphic arts. Two volumes offer barely a glimpse of his capabilities and horizons.”—Guillermo del Toro
