Here’s a neat treat for Kirby fans! We’ve recently uncovered a charming, 80s-binding art book we did ages ago featuring rarely seen Jack Kirby art.
In 1979 Kirby, was approached to create concept artwork for the adaptation of the 1967 novel Lord of Light by Roger Zelazny. The massive sets required to make the film would then be turned into a theme park in Aurora, Colorado.
While Lord of Light was never made into a movie, you can learn more about the fate of this film in Ben Affleck’s Argo.
Lord of Light and the Permanent Structures of Science Fiction Land is available on the second floor for $15.
