The Visual Story of One of the World’s Most Vital Creative Forces
This is the only serious book to take on Neil’s entire career to date: the comics, the movies, the books, and everything else.
With characters like Coraline and the Sandman to his name, Neil Gaiman is one of the best-loved authors in the world today; a creative force in comics, fiction, and the movies and TV, a serial award-winner, and a social media phenomenon whose every work is a guaranteed #1 bestseller.
His passionate following of fans numbers millions, yet few know the story of how he became the worldwide star he is today, or the private side of the many creative collaborations that have consistently inspired others to produce some of their best work.
The Art of Neil Gaiman changes this, told in Neil’s own words and enriched with visuals from his own archive. Author Hayley Campbell brilliantly evokes the literary and comics scene of 1980s London, and places pop-culture milestones in the context of a busy, multi-stranded creative life – making sense of Gaiman’s diverse career, relating it to his storytelling gifts, his talent for being in the right place at the right time, and his passionate drive to - as he himself has put it – “Make Good Art”.
