Gris Grimly's Sketchbook

I am a huge fan of Gris Grimly, and while he may not be a household name yet, in the next two years he is bound to explode. He is currently working with Guillermo Del Toro on adapting a dark take on Pinocchio. It will be a stop motion film which will fit right alongside Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, and Coraline. It is so exciting!!! In the meantime, check out his two volumes of Edgar Allen Poe, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and just in time for Halloween is his Atrum Secretum, a collection of personal thoughts and sketches deep from the grim mind. It is a beautiful black hardcover book, and a must-have for collectors.
