If you love the imagination of Jim Henson, are an aspiring artist, or just a fan of the creative process, the final draft of this un-produced screenplay is a must have.
Plus 9 all new black-and-white pages illustrated by Ramon K Perez that were cut, 19 original inked pages, 16 pages of layouts, and never-before-seen drawings, handwritten notes, and artifacts created from the Jim Henson Archives.
Between 1967 and 1974, Jim Henson and his longtime writing partner Jerry Juhl developed three drafts of a screenplay for a feature length film called Tale of Sand. It is the only feature length screenplay written by Jim Henson that he was never able to produce in his lifetime. In 2012, Archaia published a graphic novel adaptation as realized by illustrator Ramon K Perez which went on to win three Eisner Awards and two Harvey Awards. The Illustrated Screenplay features the complete and final 1974 draft of the project with Jim and Jerry’s handwritten edits as well as layouts and inked pages from the adaptation in gorgeous black-and-white, and never-before-seen sequences that were cut during the production of the graphic novel, newly illustrated by Ramon K. Perez.
