There are two ways to win: first, head to one of our three Oregon stores and enter our raffle. You’ll receive one raffle ticket per purchase. Second, sign up for our weekly newsletter! We will throw all of our newsletter subscribers into each raffle automatically!
Verdant fairy forests. Whispering mountains. The fallen towers of ancient kings. Spirit-filled lakes. The distant strains of elven bards. For over 30 years, the fantasy art of Charles Vess has been acclaimed worldwide, his rich palette, striking compositions, and lavish detail second to none in the field. Vess has been the illustrator of choice for countless publishers and writers, including Neil Gaiman, Susanna Clark, and George R. R. Martin.
Embodying the timeless approach of the golden age of illustration, Vess’s work is both breathtakingly singular and yet recalls an era when paint and brush were the vessels that carried readers of all ages to distant lands, bygone ages, and realms of the imagination.
