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. )
(above) Looking at the product illustrations above I cannot help but be reminded of Alphonse Mucha, the Art Noveau champion.
Fans of James Jean’s illustration will certainly rejoice at the opportunity to collect the bulk of his personal work in this sturdy, hard cover volume, and for those who are just discovering his art this is a perfect book to start you off. Very highly recommended.
