In her book Curious Goods: Behind the Scenes of Friday the 13th: The Series, author Alyse Wax (who has been a special guest on our Corpse Club podcast) took a deep dive into the making of the beloved supernatural series that aired from 1987–1990, and with her next book, she'll look to offer the same behind-the-scenes insights to 2017's IT and the upcoming IT Chapter Two.

On Twitter, Wax announced You'll Float Too: The World of IT, an official art book that showcases the artwork used during the making of New Line Cinema's IT and IT Chapter Two, including "concept art, sketches, storyboards, and behind-the-scenes photography."

You'll Float Too: The World of IT will also feature a foreword by director Andy Muschietti and commentary from cast and crew members.

According to Amazon, the 224-page book will be released as a hardcover (priced at $40) by Abrams on September 10th, shortly after the September 6th release of IT Chapter Two.

Cover art for the new book has yet to be revealed, but we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated on future announcements. In the meantime, you can read the official synopsis below (via Amazon):

"Collecting the best artwork produced during the making of both of these sophisticated and visually enthralling films—including concept art, sketches, storyboards, and behind-the-scenes photography—You’ll Float Too: The World of IT explores the films’ singular aesthetic and meticulous world-building. This compendium includes commentary from director Andy Muschietti; producers Barbara Muschietti, Dan Lin, and Roy Lee; the acclaimed ensemble cast; and other creative players who helped bring a new, disturbing vision of King’s perennial bestseller to life."
