Marvel and Clover Press have announced plans to release a series of art books showcasing different artists, starting with David Mack and Alex Maleev.
The Marvel Art Of David Mack and The Marvel Art Of Alex Maleev are described as “prestige coffee table books” that will feature “iconic images alongside rare and never-before-seen artwork.” Clover Press, which is no stranger to crowdfunding, will use Kickstarter to raise funds for both volumes — which might be the first time we’ve seen an official Marvel project on the platform.
“Since its launch in 2019, Clover Press has established a reputation as an eclectic publisher whose books celebrate the arts and the creative process,” said Clover Press Publisher Hank Kanalz. “The Marvel Art Of David Mack and The Marvel Art Of Alex Maleev are a testament to the vision of two awesome artists whose storytelling helped define the look and feel of today’s Marvel Universe. We’re working very closely with the artists on the design and contents of the book to create stunning art books that you will not want to miss.”
Here’s a look at each volume:
“The Marvel Art Of… books honor the legacy and signature styles of some of today’s most popular and respected artists,” said Marvel Entertainment’s Vice President of Licensed Publishing Sven Larsen. “These are stunning books that will allow True Believers everywhere to see rarely seen art by fan-favorite artists and the accompanying portfolios from Clover Press allow fans a chance to decorate their homes and offices with some of the greatest Marvel artists of all time.”
No word yet on when the Kickstarter campaign will launch, but you can ask to be notified when it does on the campaign page.
