The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains Limited Edition: A Tale of Travel and Darkness with Pictures of All Kinds

Front Cover
HarperCollins, Aug 25, 2015 - Fiction - 88 pages

Beautifully illustrated by renowned artist Eddie Campbell, this is a limited edition of Neil Gaiman’s award-winning novelette “The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains” signed by Gaiman and Campbell.

The text of The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains was first published in the collection anthology Stories: All New Tales edited by Neil Gaiman and Al Sarrantonio. This gorgeous full-color illustrated book version was born of a unique collaboration between writer Neil Gaiman and artist Eddie Campbell, who brought to vivid life the characters and landscape of Gaiman’s story. In August 2010, The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains was performed in the concert hall of the Sydney Opera House to a sold-out crowd—Gaiman read his tale live as Campbell’s magnificent artwork was presented, scene by scene, on large screens. Narrative and art were accompanied by live music composed and performed especially for the story by the FourPlay String Quartet.

This deluxe limited edition will have a beautiful clamshell case and vellum cover overwrap.

The music is overwhelming at first. It took me a while to acclimate to it, then it seemed perfect by the end too. Read full review
