Available now from Book Palace is their latest illustrators Special Edition – a quarterly magazine that presents the world’s finest illustrators – and this time out the focus is on 2000AD and DC Comics artist Brian Bolland. And it looks magnificent!
Featuring and rejoicing in the art and life of Brian Bolland, the Special includes an in-depth interview with Brian, Brian’s memory montages, reproductions of some of the most iconic Brian Bolland artwork; plus recollections from and about friends, colleagues and fans.
