Earthling has announced the upcoming publication later this year of the 25h Anniversary Edition of Weaveworld by Clive Barker. Subterranean Press will be selling copies.
Description: That which is imagined need never be lost…
Earthling celebrates 25 years of Clive Barker’s Weaveworld with the definitive edition of this dark fantasy masterwork. Weaveworld: 25th Anniversary Edition will be released late 2012 in a modest print run.
Description: Clive Barker has made his mark on modern fiction by exposing all that is surreal and magical in the ordinary world – and exploring the profound and overwhelming terror that results. With its volatile mix of the fantastical and the contemporary, the everyday and the otherworldly, Weaveworld is an epic work of dark fantasy and horror – a tour de force from one of today’s most forceful and imaginative artists.
Gift Edition: clothbound, unsigned
Numbered Edition: hand numbered 1-350; signed by Clive Barker and illustrator Richard Kirk; leatherbound; fine endsheets; bound-in satin ribbon page marker; traycased; includes bonus appendix material printed in full color: previously unreleased art as well as an early treatment/synopsis and original typed and hand-edited manuscript pages for Weaveworld when it was initially conceived as a children’s book
All editions feature new typesetting and design, two-color offset printing on fine paper (likely 80# Finch), 7×10 inch oversized pages, and smyth sewing … and nearly 30 original pieces of art by Richard Kirk, who has illustrated other projects by Clive Barker as well as Earthling releases by China Mieville and Christopher Golden.
Time Magazine calls Weaveworld “an irresistible yarn,” and Peter Straub says it is “pure dazzle, pure storytelling.” This 25th anniversary edition of Weaveworld will undoubtedly be the one to own and experience.
Limited: 350 signed numbered copies, in traycase
Gift: Fully cloth bound hardcover edition
