Book cover: Hung, Drawn and Executed: The Horror Art of Graham Humphreys.

Product Description

Graham Humphreys’ career as a poster artist looms large over horror cinema. From designing the iconic Evil Dead poster to Nightmare on Elm Street and House of a Thousand Corpses, his work is familiar film audiences around the world. It’s easy to see why his work grabs the attention of horror fans and filmmakers alike, as he continually and systematically sets the bar ever higher in his quest for sheer terror and pure entertainment. With over forty years of experience, he is one of the few contemporary illustrators using the traditional medium of gouache to paint his images. Includes previously unseen work: paintings, drawings and colour studies, as well as additional text by Victoria Price, daughter of Vincent Price and Dacre Stoker, the great-grandnephew of Bram Stoker.
