Official Press Release
Brian Wood’s art and design book increases in page count
SAN FRANCISCO (January 2, 2002): Writer/artist Brian Wood and publisher
AiT/Planet Lar announced today that when Wood’s PUBLIC DOMAIN: A Channel
Zero DesignBook ships, it will contain 32 EXTRA pages than previously
announced, with no increase in cover price.
“When we solicited PUBLIC DOMAIN,” said Wood. “I was planning a 112 page
book. But once I started putting it together and creating the pages, I
was having so much fun I didn’t want to stop. Actually, I think I did
about 160 pages but then edited the weaker material out and down to 144
pages. That’s 32 more than previously announced.”
PUBLIC DOMAIN: A Channel Zero DesignBook, is a unique look into the
creation of the critically-acclaimed series CHANNEL ZERO, complete with
sketches, designs, illustrations, short comic stories, commentary and
production notes, and is the capstone project, along with the Couscous
Express patches and posters, to Brian Wood Month.
“I think this not only shows Bri’s love for his work and his desire to
present the best product possible to his readers,” publisher Larry Young
said, “but also shows our commitment to our creators to give them the
leeway to make creative decisions like this and to stay out of their
hair. If Brian says this is what’s best for the book, we’re behind him
PUBLIC DOMAIN: A Channel Zero DesignBook retains its original cover
price of $12.95, is 144 pages long, and will be in shops January 30th.
Twenty-four preview pages are available on the Internet at:
