Candy Jar Books is set to reissue a limited edition hardcover of Kklak! The Doctor Who Art of Chris Chris Achilléos. The book is available now to pre-order, but only 100 will be printed, so if you want one, be quick!
This publication if a celebration of all the Doctor Who work of Chris Achilléos, who’s best known for his Target novelisation covers.
Here’s the blurb:
Kklak! The Doctor Who Art of Chris Chris Achilléos covers for the official Target novelisations, which began in the early ‘70s, defined a generation’s image of the Doctor and his adventures – particularly after the show disappeared from British screens in the late ‘80s.
Lavishly detailed, with psychedelic overtones and an unapologetically pulpy sensibility, these covers perfectly captured the eccentric appeal of the classic series.
Kklak: The Doctor Who Art of Chris Achilléos collects the entirety of Achilléos’ Doctor Who artwork in chronological order, along with commentary from Achilléos himself (as well as some fans) – presenting the definitive guide to his seminal work.
The book also includes a small contribution from Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi and a foreword from Achilléos’ long-time friend and collaborator, the late Terrance Dicks.
Featuring every one of Achilléos’ Doctor Who designs, as well as never before seen material giving insight into his creative process, Kklak: the Doctor Who Art of Chris Achilléos is released by Candy Jar Books.
There have also been requests for a hardback reprint of Timeslides: The Doctor Who Artwork of Colin Howard (edited by me!), so if you’d like that too, head to Candy Jar and click the ‘notify me when it is back in stock’ button. As soon as the publisher reaches a set number of enquiries, the book will be back up for pre-order and then reprint. You can also buy the paperback version, which is available straight away!
