The World of The Dark Crystal by Brian Froud is a companion book to the 1982 film The Dark Crystal, a US/British fantasy film directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz.
The film was seen to be much darker than the creators’ previous works. The book – created and edited by Rupert Brown – features illustrations from conceptual designer of The Dark Crystal Brian Froud, and text by J.J. Llewellyn.
Illustrated with over 200 drawings, by Brian Froud, most in full in colour, and it’s story of Tolkien-like fascination, this scarce book is a work of fantasy and artistry.
The dust wrapper is in good condition, clean, with a 3cm closed tear to the bottom fore-corner, small chips to the top corners, rubbing and creasing to the extremities and light scratches.
The binding is secure and tight. Inside, there are some minor light stains and specks to the fep and bep, otherwise the content is clean and in near fine condition.
