    Default 2015 Haven Auction #55-Stephen King SIGNED Desperation Gift-W/Don Maitz Original Art


    AUCTION LINK



    TheDarkTower.org is proud to be the EXCLUSIVE site to auction this new, unique and fine Collectible item.
    For your consideration is a Stephen King Signed Gift Edition of "Desperation" featuring painted original art by the book's artist-Don Maitz .


    Don Maitz was kind enough to do an original piece in the book, then shipped the book to Stephen King for his signature.

    Thanks to DT.org member Merlin 1958 for donating the book, and of course thanks to Don Maitz and Stephen King!

    100% of the net proceeds of this auction go to The Haven Foundation. Originally founded by Stephen King, The Haven Foundation is a national, non-profit organization making grants to freelance writers and artists experiencing career-threatening illness, accident, natural disaster or other emergency or personal catastrophe.

    Please check the pictures carefully. As a result of Maitz painting in the book, there are minor ripples to the art page. Part of the paint drying process, but I want the buyer to be fully aware.

    Don Maitz, is "Da Man"!!!!!!!!


    Be advised, Don has hinted at revealing some new, never before seen illustrations from the upcoming CD edition of "The Shining" in these auction threads. He has also offered to post some insights into the creation process for these remarques. So check in regularly and bid often!!!

    Very cool! I hadn't realized he'd been tapped to work on CDs The Shining project. Was this the work you hinted at previously?

    I won't hazard a guess, but it is signed by, King and Don Maitz along with some incredible art so who knows???

    Hi all, this it the first of the books with watercolor remarques to go into auction. it is very nice of King to sign these and of his secretaries to do the logistics, and also for Merlin to supply the books (and pay the shipping charges)! It is a team effort for a good cause and I am just glad I did not screw up the donated book by sneezing on it, or spilling water all over the book as I was working on it. Everyone seems to be attracted to the cop, Collie Entragian, in the Desperation book, so I focused on him again for the remarques this year. Such a creepy idea to have someone filled to bursting enhabited by an "Old One's" energetic spirit. - Don

    Wow. Just wow.

    Very cool to see another artist on here, welcome and thank you and all involved on a wonderful piece. Glad to see the bidding high already, but suspect this will go much higher still.

    I'd love to hear the back story to how these amazing editions came to be signed by King? Was it as simple as emailing his assistant with the request? Or was there a little more too it? Does anyone hear actually have direct access to the man himself? (I'm not asking for that access to be shared if so lol)

    If any info is available it would be cool to hear...

    Someone got a real nice deal on this one! Jimmick. I believe I read on another thread that Don Maitz had a lot of influence to King's signature.
