LAST FEW COPIES. The first ever Moebius retrospective in English. Click for larger image ...
The first ever Moebius retrospective in English (and some German).
This new lavishly illustrated retrospective boasts over 270 pages of the fullest and most exceptional art produced by Jean Henri Gaston Giraud... better known as the formidable Science Fiction, Bandes Dessinées and Western artist, Moebius.
This long overdue art book contains page after page of Moebius's incredible work, including production work for films such as James Cameron's 'Abyss'
, rarely seen artwork for the San Francisco Sony Metreon centre (where four artists including Maurice Sendak were commissioned to design entire floors), illustrations for a version of Dante's Divine Comedy
, work inspired by Salvador Dali, collaborations with comic artist Geoff Darrow, rarely seen images of Arzach
, exclusive artwork for posters, abstract paintings, beautiful reproductions of pages from 'Inside Moebius', 'La Faune de Mars', '40 Days in the Desert', 'Blueberry', 'The Long Tomorrow', 'L'Incal'
and the Hermès
In short, this art book is comparable only to 'Transe Forme'
, the book published by Fondation Cartier in 2010 which became an instant collectors item, the main difference of course being that this book contains detailed essays in English.
The book includes:
* full biography with rarely seen personal photos of Giraud's time in Mexico, Venice and during his military service in Algeria.
* detailed bibliography
* section dedicated to Moebius's very own words relating to his major projects including Arzach, 40 Days, Self Portraits and Abstraction.
* a four page full colour fold-out of Moebius's mural designed for the Beffroi de Montrouge, a Cultural Centre in Paris.Author:
