Holy Moley! This Book Looks GREAT!

I recently received an advance copy of my new book, Fantastic Worlds – The Art of William Stout.

Insight Editions really outdid themselves on this one. My thanks to my great editor, Mark Irwin. He and his Insight Editions team were really instrumental in putting the book together and making it as nice as it turned out. At over 300 pages with more than 500 images, this book spans my fifty year career as a working artist. Although it’s still just the tip of the iceberg in regards to the amount of work I’ve produced, this heavy volume showcases the best of the best of the many different aspects of my diverse career. Each chapter explores a different field of endeavor: Early Years, Mentors & Inspirations, Comics, Music, Entertainment Advertising, Film Design, Theme Park Design, Disney, Dinosaurs, Antarctica, Fantasy Art and Personal Works.

My friend Robert Williams wrote a truly insightful introduction and the great Ed Leimbacher wrote the book’s illuminating text.

It’s already available for pre-order from Amazon at a greatly reduced price: https://www.amazon.com/Fantastic-Worlds-Art-William-Stout/dp/1608878651/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1540925877&sr=1-1&keywords=fantastic+world+william+stout

The copies that Bud’s Art Books is selling come with an extra signed bookplate with a full color dragon picture of mine that’s never been published: https://www.budsartbooks.com/catalogsearch/advanced/result/?byline=william+stout&comment_start=&description=&isbn=&name=&out_of_print_dd=&p=2&price%5Bfrom%5D=&price%5Bto%5D=&publish_date=&publisher=&search_tag=&sku=

The holidays are coming…

    Bill, I honestly didn’t realize how big this book really would be! I picked up my copy at my local comic shop as I like to give my business to the locals rather than on line shopping and I am excited to dig in over the weekend. I look forward to seeing you in 2019 to compliment you in person.

    Bill, I received my, much anticipated, volume today. It had been ordered as soon as I saw it solicited. What an amazing volume! Full of your marvelous and inspiring work. I’m still enjoying a slower trip through this cave of wonders. Congratulations on a truly striking body of work. Keep at it, I’m Ready for the second volume.
