Rebus - James Jean Art Book

Most well known for his surreal cover illustrations for DC Comic’s Fables, James Jean’s expansive art book Rebus is an exhaustive collection of the artist’s work, from oil paintings to installations, detailed process sketches and intricate pencil drawings.

Spanning over 240 pages, Rebus covers well over a decade of his illustration work and at the risk of sounding cliche, this really is the book to get if you only have budget for one James Jean art book. ( with his Fables art book coming in at a very very close 2nd – read the book review here. )

i got this a little while ago; James Jean is the shit. because he did so much work for Fables, comic shops in the United States make it pretty easy to find copies of his artbooks. he has truly become a successful crossover artist, and his work and work ethic deserve the success.

such a talent but he is getting boring, especially latest paintings..he must give a break..
