Official Press Release
San Diego, CA (October 25, 2004) Fans love the art of Ashley Wood so much that IDW Publishing has to go back to the presses.
That's exactly what happened in the case of Grande Fanta, a hardcover collection of Spectrum Award-winning Wood's art. The high-quality book, which debuted in June 2004, is a collection of Wood's art books Uno Fanta, Dos Fanta, and Tres Fanta, plus new material, too.
This compendium proved so popular with readers that the book sold out within months. It will see new life and reach new fans in this softcover edition.
"I thought I would be sleeping on boxes of the hardcover for years to come," Ash said, "but with its print run being consumed within months of the book's release, the time has come to release its replacement, the Grande Fanta softcover, a happy book indeed."
Grande Fanta is a full-color, 304-page softcover book on sale in January 2005.
