Land of Kaiju Book and Trading Cards at SDCCJuly 15th, 2013
Artist Chet Phillips has created this great set of illustrations of kaiju-style monsters. Phillips explores the world of humongous mutants and irradiated creatures in his illustrations. They are available in a portfolio of trading cards, signed 11″ x 14″ prints and in a limited edition (50) alphabet book. The first 10 copies of the book edition include a beautiful custom Japanese box.
The book measures 9.75″ x 8.5.” Each copy of the edition is printed on heavy, bright white 48 lb. cover stock, bound in a Japanese-styled binding design using beautiful Chiyogami paper and silk thread by Julie Sullivan of Dancing Cat Bindery.
Each pack of 24 cards is presented in a paper portfolio (signed on the back) with gold foil stamp on the label and red “Chet” Haragani red stamp designed by Sachi Greene of StampsbySachi. The card front sides display the monster portrait with a distinct Japanese woodblock flavor and the reverse provides the point of origin along with physical characteristics and historical information of each creature. Each card measures 3.25″ x 4″ and are printed on sturdy 14 pt. uncoated cover stock.
The book and card set will be available at Comic Con International in San Diego in the Small Press area, Booth O-1.
