Gagné Unveils "Parables: An Anthology" in February
WA, November 2003 - Gagné International Press
will release Parables:
in February 2004. This collected edition will reprint Gagné's
first four books in one single volume.
times Annie Award Nominee Michel Gagné
is well known for his animation and design work on movies such
as The Iron Giant, Osmosis
Jones and more recently, the Star Wars:
Clone Wars animated series. His quirky art books,
such as Insanely Twisted Rabbits and
Frenzied Fauna: From A to Z, have earned
him a worldwide following.
An Anthology will collect Gagné’s sold
out and highly sought-after limited edition storybooks: A
Search for Meaning: The Story of Rex (B&W edition),
The Mystery of He, The Great
Shadow Migration and The
Bird, the Spider and the Octopus.
Although there have been several requests to reprint some of the
individual volumes, it was not an option for Gagné. "We
didn’t feel it would be fair to the collectors who own those
books", he said. "We wanted to make sure that the original
editions would remain unique. We thought that a compilation would
be the perfect compromise: keep the collectors happy while introducing
the material to a wider audience. These stories are very close
to my heart and I’m delighted to bring them back in print."
An Anthology will be printed on high grade cream
paper; will feature a special introduction by Gagné and
a pencil sketch gallery. It will solicit through Diamond in December's
Previews and will be available simultaneously
in soft and hard cover. It will retail at $18.95 and $26.95 respectively.
