Here’s a preview of one of the covers for Fantastic Worlds: The Art of William Stout. This 300+ pp. book with over 500 illustrations is available for pre-order at Amazon. The street date is November 7 — just in time for the holidays! The art, of course, is by Stout. The text is by Ed Leimbacher (Ed wrote the fabulous intro to Stout’s Legends of the Blues) with an introduction by Robert Williams. Each of the twelve chapters covers a different aspect of Stout’s famously diverse career (dinosaurs, Antarctica, comics, film design, LP & CD covers, etc.). 2018 is Stout’s 50th year as a professional artist.

A more HIGHLY anticipated collection has rarely been so yearned for by yours truly!
Amazon’s troubles be hanged. Pre-ordered.
One can only wonder as to what exciting images and text await us. Glad it’s finally being released.
Great news! I caught sight of this the other day and was thrilled. Really looking forward to this. So now I know what goes on the top of the list of my letter to Santa. 🙂 Congratulations on 50 years, Mr. Stout!
I am extremely excited for this book!! Will definitely be adding this one to the library 🙂
Absolutely Fabulous! It is great to know that a book covering your diverse contributions to the art world is finally going to be available in a varied collection. By any chance, will you be doing a signing in your neighborhood or the Greater L.A. area? Or perhaps might you have it ready to sign at the upcoming Creature Features’ UNSEEN DREAMS exhibit which will feature some of your motion picture pre-production art? In any case, this is going to be the book to have for 2018!
