WHAT IS AN ARTIST’S EDITION?
An Artist’s Edition is an art book that reproduces artwork scanned directly from Breathed’s original art. While the pages appear to be in black & white, they have been shot in color so the reader can see all the little nuances that make original art unique: Blue pencil notations, gradients in the inks, paste overs, and more. All the dailies in this book have been printed at 100% of the actual size drawn, and the Sunday pages at 90% of actual size. The paper is a heavy stock to best mimic the look and feel of Berkeley Breathed’s actual original art—having this book is the next best thing to sitting in Berkeley’s studio as he was drawing Bloom County!
