Candy Jar Books is looking for Doctor Who fans to share their thoughts and memories of Chris Achilléos’ Doctor Who artwork (as well as the Target books that featured his art) for their upcoming tome, Kklak: the Doctor Who Art of Chris Achilléos.
The volume will compile into one book the entirety of Chris’ artwork for Target novelisations. The artwork is presented chronologically, with accompanying commentary from the artist himself. The book will begin with an exclusive foreword from Achilléos’ long-time friend and collaborator – and the most prolific and popular of all Target scribes – the late Terrance Dicks.
Whether they set you on a path that ultimately led to a career, or simply gave you a few lazy Sundays’ entertainment, the publisher would love to hear your stories. Do you have images of you with Chris, or photos of yourself reading these iconic Target books as a child? We’d love to see them. We want to pay tribute to why these books really matter – how they have touched lives all over the world.
Head of Publishing, Shaun Russell, says:
“Last year, we put out a free release celebrating the career of Terrance Dicks, after his passing. A lot of our contributors said that Terrance, and the Target range which he and Chris defined, got them into reading, got them into science fiction, got them into writing as a discipline and ultimately a career. These books changed lives! They changed my life! We want Klaak! to celebrate this.”
These contributions will be compiled into a chapter in the upcoming book, Kklak!: The Doctor Who Artwork of Chris Achilléos.
Send your memories, photos, or artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading KKLAK!
Each contributor will receive a personally signed paperback copy of the book.
If you’re solely interested in buying the book – and it does look wonderful – head over to Candy Jar now.
