John Picacio, this year’s winner of the Hugo Award for Best Professional Artist, and the artist for the best-selling 2012 George R. R. Martin / A Song of Ice and Fire Calendar, got in touch with me a little earlier today to let me know about his project to create a totally AWESOME calendar which feature twelve of his favorite book cover artworks from his career thus far. Here’s what John sent me:
I’m about to publish a 2013 John Picacio Calendar and I think your audience might enjoy it.
I’m running a Kickstarter to fund printing and rewards for this effort, and it’s almost over — expires this Wednesday at 12 noon EST! We’re doing well, but we need a final push to the finish line.
This Kickstarter is the only way to acquire these calendars, so they’ll very likely be a limited print run, and there are no plans to make them available after Wednesday.
I’m working to make this calendar the most gorgeous collectible that I can, and I think it would make a unique gift idea for sf/f fans everywhere. We’ll initiate printing later this week, so that we can give our backers the best chance to receive their items and rewards for the gift-giving season.
