In late 2015, it was made Kickstarter’s #1 Featured Project out of a total of 575 campaigns that were live at the time. Over the course of its fundraising, 401 eager fans raised a massive $50,535 to go towards the publication.
Looking back at twenty years of Scott’s work, spanning 1995 to 2015, the book examines and contextualises some of the defining pieces of his career.
Scott’s work has a distinctiveness that has not only earned the attention of sculpture and installation enthusiasts around the world, but also landed him a job working on Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. The creatures he designs and sculpts are consistently stunning and eerie in their haunting tranquillity.
Each and every piece Scott has created is raw and personal, with a close relationship to the artist’s own experience of anxiety and depression. His connection to his work is one that resonates with anyone who has ever experienced truly strong emotion.
This book gives you the opportunity to keep a copy of his collected favourites for yourself, as well as a chance to learn more about the pieces that mean the most to him.
Everyone who backed the Kickstarter campaign back in 2015 will receive their copies of the book shortly. Although the run is limited, there’s still a chance to get one for yourself via the BigCartel page of designer Kasra Ghanbari, whose input was crucial to compiling the book in such a unique way.
Scott is even offering a special package for eager fans who order the book before Friday 5th January 2018. Any orders placed this week will include a free bookmark, as well as a free signed and embossed totem print and limited signed and numbered die-cut signature plate.
All of this is included for the price of just the book itself as of it this weekend, so you’ll want to get your orders in fast! Get it here.
