"The world is simply composed of stories."
Novelist, comics writer, scriptwriter, poet, and occasional artist, there are few creative avenues Neil Gaiman hasn't ventured down—from unforgettable books like The Ocean at the End of the Lane and American Gods to groundbreaking comics and graphic novels like The Sandman and Violent Cases; from big-screen fantasies like Coraline and Stardust to small-screen epics like Doctor Who and Neverwhere; and from short stories to songwriting, stage plays to radio plays, journalism to filmmaking, and all points in between.
The Art of Neil Gaiman is the first book to tell the full story of his amazing creative life. Never-before-seen manuscripts, notes, cartoons, drawings, and personal photographs from Neil's own archive are complemented by artwork and sketches from all his major works and his own intimate recollections. Each project is examined in turn, from genesis to fruition, and positioned in the wider narrative of Gaiman's creative life, affording unparalleled access to the inner workings of the writer's mind.
Utterly comprehensive, lavishly illustrated, The Art of Neil Gaiman is the fully authorized account of the life and work of one of the world's great storytellers.

I have been a Neil Gaiman fan for many, many, years, and as soon as I saw this book - I just knew I would love it too. Great insight on what he was doing, thinking, feeling, when writing certain things. And as big of a fan as I say I am, I even have to admit that I never knew just how many comics Gaiman was heavily involved in.
All this to say - if it's you that is the Neil Gaiman fan, or a family member, friend.....well, THIS is the book! Pictures, detailed information on his life, scribbles, drawings, post cards, etc.
You will NOT regret this purchase.
