"BE WELL, AND SHINE ON": ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF THE SHINING, SIGNED BY STEPHEN KING AND ARTIST EDWARD KINSELLA

KING, Stephen. The Shining. London: The Folio Society, 2016. Quarto, original black cloth, original slipcase. $2200.

Illustrated edition of King's third novel, a "masterwork, a bold product of an original vision," signed on a tipped-in leaf by Stephen King and artist Edward Kinsella, who provided 12 full-page color illustrations for this edition.

Inspired by Poe's short story "The Masque of the Red Death," King's first hardcover bestseller is "his consummate ghostly tale" about "the haunted house to end all haunted houses" (Underwood & Miller, 174, 184). "The fact is that The Shining is a masterwork, a bold product of an original vision, a novel of astonishing passion, urgency, tenderness, understanding, and invention… In its uniting of an almost bruising literary power, a deep sensitivity to individual experience, and its operatic convictions, it is a very significant work of art" (Peter Straub). Made into the 1980 movie directed by Stanley Kubrick and starring Jack Nicolson and Shelley Duvall; it was later made into a 1997 TV mini-series starring Steven Weber and Rebecca De Mornay and with a cameo appearance by King himself.
