Synopses & Reviews
takes the graphic novel to a new level of presentation with each page of the book covered in paintings and illustrations which immerse you in the quest of Lucas Sellers. The journal-style pages feature ornate parchments and detailed trinkets that draw you into the story and carry meaning that you might only find on the second or third reading.
At 10” x 15”, Utherworlds presents Philip Straub’s artwork like never before. Each painting in the book becomes a matte painting that you peer into rather than simply flick through like a normal book. Each spread of Utherworlds is a visual feast that can be appreciated as beautiful artwork, or studied in combination with the journal entries to find deeper levels of meaning within the story. A visual journey: a parchment style mimics the lead character's journal,
and every square inch of the book
has been painstakingly illustrated for
the greatest effect.
Combines a fully-fledged novel with written and spoken languages, maps, and stunning paintings that provide layers of detail.
