    James Jean Fables Covers: The Art of James Jean (New Edition) Unused Double-Sided Preliminary Original Art (DC, 2014). James Jean's covers for Bill Willingham's comic book, Fables, were astoundingly lovely. So much so, in fact, that they deserved a book of their own. That art collection was so popular that it warranted a revised edition. This 11.5" x 8.25" page of paper has not one... but two rough cover designs. Jean originally thought to mirror the previous cover and feature Rose Red and a Tiger instead of Snow White and a Wolf. As such, one side has a light blue printed book on the page, with very faint blue lines printed, then that gorgeous James Jean pencil work over the top of it. The other side is pure graphite of a different take on this. Ultimately he went a completely different direction with that cover. This page has very slight handling and it in Excellent condition.
