In July NBM will publish The Best of Luis Royo, a 240-page deluxe hardcover collection of fantasy art from the talented Spanish painter. The first Royo collection published by NBM has already amassed sales of over 50,000 copies, a strong performance for a fantasy art collection. The new collection, which includes the best work from throughout Royo's career, is due out in July and carries a cover price of $45. The Best of Luis Royo is also available in a special signed and numbered edition of 250 copies. The Limited Edition, which retails for $100 is nearly sold out and orders may have to be allocated.
Ted Rall, another of NBM's best-selling authors, whose To Afghanistan and Back sold over 20,000 copies, is back this month with another diatribe against the Bush Administration entitled Generalissimo El Busho. With the U.S. electorate as polarized as it has ever been during this election year, collections of political cartoons should have more appeal than usual.
