Beautifully illustrated by renowned artist Eddie Campbell, this is a limited edition of Neil Gaiman's award-winning novelette "The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains" --signed by Gaiman and Campbell, and containing a CD of the FourPlay String Quartet music.

In August 2010, The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains was performed in the concert hall of the Sydney Opera House to a sold-out crowd--Gaiman read his tale live as Campbell's magnificent artwork was presented, scene by scene, on large screens. Narrative and art were accompanied by live music composed and performed especially for the story by the FourPlay String Quartet.

  • Signed by Eddie Campbell.

  • Vellum cover overwrap.

Eddie Campbell Interview Clip from Comic Book Resources on this book:

CBR: The original presentation of The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountain was at the Sydney Opera House as part of a performance and reading. Was that its original intended form and this graphic novel something later, or was the end goal always a graphic novel?

Eddie Campbell: The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountain began as a commission to put on a performance as part of the first Sydney Graphic Festival in 2010. It consisted of Neil reading his story of the same title at the Sydney Opera House. The story hadn’t yet been published when we planned the whole thing, though it was out by the time we fronted up on stage. Behind him were projected three dozen painted illustrations I made for the event, and off to the side the string Quartet Fourplay performed music they composed specially for the show. it was one of those complicated things we thought couldn’t possibly work. The whole thing was planned, as was the festival in fact, by Jordan Verzar. But that was part of the exhilaration of it, a feeling that we were in public with no belt to hold up our trousers. The show was an overwhelming full-house success.

Well, in this business, as in any business, you’re always looking to maximize the exposure of the work. No sooner was the live event finished than I was thinking about taking the illustrations and the text and weaving it all together in a book. It took quite a bit of work and I added a great many more pictures to make it all run smoothly from beginning to end. I was very excited to see it go to the printer, and today I’m looking at the first set of proofs. I feel very pleased indeed.

2015 William Morrow. Sealed upon receipt here for complete archival protection.
