Scott Campbell
Amazing Everything: The Art of Scott C.

With equal parts style, humor, and insight, Scott C. has delighted an international fanbase with his unique watercolor paintings, illustrations, and drawings. Amazing Everything: The Art of Scott C. is his first monograph, the best and most imaginative works of art in his emerging career.

Admirers and collectors seek out Scott C.'s appearances at such diverse venues as Comic-Con in San Diego and Galerie Arludik in Paris to see his unusual depictions of pop-culture subjects and original creations: Victorian-era dinosaurs at high tea; lumberjacks and their sometimes-awkward relationship with trees; and ninjas lounging in their living room at home. These and other reflections of Scott C.'s artistic vision have kept him on the radar of such pop-culture trend outlets as Flavorpill and Hi-Fructose.

Jerry Beck
The Hanna-Barbera Treasury

Discover never-before-seen art, memorabilia and mementos from the golden age of cartoons. Here, for the first time, is a showcase presentation of the best of the art from the legendary Hanna-Barbera studio. The Hanna-Barbera Treasury celebrates the legacy of Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera through more than five decades of rare drawings, storyboards, concept art, and memorabilia from studio archives and private collections.

Since first joining forces as a pair of young animators, Hanna and Barbera won seven Academy Awards at MGM and still, decades later, their best-loved characters are household names. Today, it is not uncommon for three generations of families to share the joy of Hanna-Barbera's creations.

100 Greatest Looney Tunes Cartoons

In a world of rascally rabbits, megalomaniacal ducks, and stuttering pigs, what defines greatness? This question was posed to thousands of cartoon fans, historians, and animators to create The 100 Greatest Looney Tunes Cartoons, the definitive Looney Tunes  collection. Evaluated on their comedic brilliance, innovative animation, historical significance, and creative merit, cartoon historian Jerry Beck and the Cartoon Brew team of animation experts reveal the amusing anecdotes and secret origins behind such classics as What's Opera, Doc?One Froggy Evening, and Duck Dodgers in the 24th Century. Featuring more than 300 pieces of original art from private collectors and the Warner Bros. archives, The 100 Greatest Looney Tunes Cartoons settles the debate on the best of the best, and poses a new question: Is your favorite one of the greatest?

Iain McCaig
Shadowline: The Art of Iain McCaig

"What is Shadowline? It is the place where things meet: light and shadows, hope and despair, good and evil. It is, to me, the most interesting place to hunt for stories." So begins this stunningly realized and beautifully rendered new work from master storyteller and artist Iain McCaig.
McCaig is best known for his work as a principal designer on the three Star Wars prequels, including the iconic characters Queen Amidala and Darth Maul, as well as his work on many major motion pictures, television, and video games. His work can be seen in such acclaimed films as Terminator 2Hook, Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula,Interview with a VampireHarry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, to name a few.
Shadowline presents a stunning portfolio of more than two decades of McCaig's masterful concept designs and storyboards, cover art and illustrations, as well as his private sketchbooks and personal paintings, all woven together within the confines of an engrossing, otherworldly tale.
