Neil Gaiman And Charles Vess' Stardust
Neil Gaiman And Charles Vess' Stardust | Neil Gaiman
19 posts | 17 read | 24 to read
Winner of the American Library Award, Mythopoeic Award and World Fantasy Award for Best Artist! It is here in Wall that young Tristran Thorn loses his heart to the town beauty--a woman who is as cold and distant as the star she and Tristran see fall from the sky on a crisp October evening. To gain the hand of his beloved, Tristran rashly vows to fetch the fallen star and embarks upon a lover's quest that will carry him over the ancient wall and into a world beyond his wildest imagingings... NEIL GAIMAN AND CHARLES VESS'S STARDUST features the New York Times best-selling author (THE SANDMAN) and one of the industry's best illustrators at the height of their creative powers.

A fairy story for adults full of a sense of wonder, it's a story of magic and humanity. Stardust is beautiful especially this new 2019 edition, which includes added artwork to fill in the "visual gaps." I loved the "behind the veil" content with Vess' sketch gallery pieces as well as the original proposal from Gaiman.

My otp (one true pairing) are Tristran Thorn and Yvaine. They‘re not fond of each at first meet. Eventually an attraction grows while traversing through Faerie land and Tristran wises up to see his motivation to win over Victoria is selfish. He declares his love to Yvaine and they live happily ever after as King and Queen of Stormhold.

I had a girlfriend sleepover weekend downtown at Judy's. Saturday, we fueled up at The Medici so we'd have energy to visit 57th Street Books (indie), Powell's (used), and Open Books (proceeds fund literacy programs). I hit the jackpot! [details in comment] #BookstoreCrawl #BookQuest #BookDragon

JoyBlue From Open Books: Florence of Arabia and Shopgirl are hardcover replacements for existing softcovers; Wet Work is new to my collection; Stardust graphic novel is joining the audio edition in my collection (still want the hardcover eventually); deLint was recommended to me by the guy on-duty. From 57th: autographed There There (now reading) and Less (recently read/thoroughly enjoyed); Paretsky on sale/intriguing. 11mo
mabell Sounds like a great weekend! 11mo
Bkwrm7 I've read some of de Lint's YA stuff and really enjoyed it. What a lovely sounding weekend! 11mo

Closest thing I have to #walkingonthemoon is Stardust. #rockinmay @Cinfhen

MinDea I liked the movie...how does the book compare? (Better, I'm assuming...) Is it different than the movie? 2y
Seshat The book is lovely, @MinDea and I enjoyed the movie but they did change things a bit. Not too much, though. 2y

Onto another Neil Gaiman graphic novel. I was reluctant to read this because I am not much into romance. However, now I'm like, it's fairies, how much like 50 Shades can it be ? Grow up Michelle, lol. 🙄😎😍

A sweet little fairy tale made even better by Charles Vess' wonderful illustrations. This is a fully illustrated book and the art work is simply magical. This is a great story for all ages.
