Rare Dark Crystal Item with Brian Froud Signature and Drawing[Brian Froud and Jim Henson]. The Dark Crystal. [N.p.]: [Henson Associates], .
First edition. Signed on the title page by Brian Froud, conceptual designer of the Jim Henson film Dark Crystal; Froud has also drawn a charming goblin face above his signature. Oblong octavo. Unpaginated (forty pages).
Publisher's brown, stiff paper covers in comb binding. Front cover with design printed in relief and gilt title. Title page and map page modestly stained along the bound edge, not affecting text. Illustrated throughout with color and black and white photos, and with design drawings by Froud. A near fine copy.
A scarce item believed to have been given out in only very limited quantities at the film's wrap banquet and never available to the public. When Froud saw this copy, he was truly surprised and commented that there were possibly no more than fifteen to twenty copies that might have circulated beyond that evening. His incredible designs and wonderful imagination influenced all aspects of the film and can be seen throughout the book. Though not well-received by American audiences when originally released, the film was enormously popular in Europe and Japan and has steadily gained a strong following here. A visually magnificent film that owes much to Brian Froud's incredible vision and talent.
