Chinese "Imaginative Realism"

Shanghai People’s Fine Arts Publishing House has just published a Chinese edition of Imaginative Realism: How to Paint What Doesn't Exist. The layout of the book is the same as the English edition, but the dimensions are a little smaller. As far as we know, this edition will only be available in China.

Great ! but when a french version ? I've mine from a long time but's hard to realy apreciate because my english is not so good ! :)))

Yami, I hope there will be a French edition someday, but there are no plans right now. If there is an interested foreign publisher, they can contact the international rights department at my publisher, AndrewsMcMeel in Kansas City, USA.

There is something in the look and feel of the Chinese characters that seems oddly in tune with our brush-wielding friend on the cover. He seems born to be paired with those characters. To my eye, the total effect of the cover is more unified than with English lettering.

Steve, I thought so too--kind of like really sophisticated alien graffiti and a grunge-stamp in the lower right.

Is it me, or did the Chinese cover make a "Foo-man-chu" style over your character's face? It somehow looks different.

If you are in China, you can order from amazon.cn.
There are english version and chinese version.
I prefer english version as the color and quality are more good to me.

Was given your book Color and Light as a christmas gift, a classic that belongs on every art book shelf just like literary classics, Tom Sawer... Ernest Hemingway novels etc., that belong on a writers book shelf.
Nice!
