This is a 198-page Jim Steranko retrospective from Vanguard Productions. It is a deluxe softcover in a hard slipcase and is a limited edition of about 3,000 (not-numbered) copies, signed by Jim Steranko. Contains 24 color plates. The text is in both Italian and English, with the left column on each page in Italian, and the right column in English. Profusely illustrated in black & white throughout, complimenting the text. Contains bibliography of Steranko Essential Art.
“The covers are scuffed-up, but most have perfect insides and perfect slipcases” said the book’s co-author and Publisher, J. David Spurlock.
Vanguard has already turned down attempts to reorder from Diamond, FM, and other distributors.
“We expect the book to start selling over retail on the collectors market as soon as people realize its scarcity” added Spurlock.
So, it’s totally out of print, but there is a pretty good copy (CBR) available for download over here.
