Last month, we were excited to learn that Cemetery Dance was working on a 25th anniversary edition of Stephen King’s IT. This is being sold as three separate collector's editions that will feature a brand new afterword by Stephen King, as well as nearly 30 pieces of new artwork from Alan M. Clark and Erin Wells.

Many of our readers respond positively to the announcement, so we got an exclusive piece of artwork from Cemetery Dance to share with you. Continue reading for more information on the anniversary edition and to view the exclusive artwork...

"Cemetery Dance Publications is very pleased to announce our Special Deluxe Limited Edition of Stephen King's classic novel It, which he calls his 'final exam on Famous Monsters' in his brand new afterword to this oversized special edition!

This is easily the biggest, most lavish production Cemetery Dance Publications has ever undertaken. Glen Orbik painted the gorgeous wrap-around cover artwork, Alan M. Clark and Erin Wells created nearly thirty exclusive interior illustrations including black & white drawings and color paintings, and we hired the designer of the Limited Editions of The Secretary of Dreams, Blockade Billy, Riding the Bullet, and Full Dark, No Stars to create a unique interior design unlike any book we've ever published!

Special Features Exclusive to this Collector's Edition:
• brand new afterword by Stephen King detailing why he wrote the book
• deluxe oversized design (7 inches X 10 inches) featuring two color interior printing
• epic wrap-around full color cover artwork by Glen Orbik
• nearly thirty pieces of color and black & white interior artwork by Alan M. Clark and Erin Wells
• interior color artwork will be printed on a high-quality glossy stock and tipped into the book
• high-quality embossed endpapers and fine bindings for all three editions
• full-color signature sheets with exclusive color artwork in the signed editions
• a page count so high it pushes the limits of our printer — easily our largest book ever!
• extremely collectible print run that is a tiny fraction of the MILLIONS of copies of this novel you've seen in bookstores over the last 25 years — and you will NOT find our edition in chain bookstores!"

The lettered and limited editions are already sold out, so if still want to pick a copy up, head over to the Cemetery Dance product page. Below, we have artwork given exclusively to Daily Dead. This piece, titled "Apple Blossoms", will be used as part of the book's interior artwork and has been created by Alan M. Clark.
