Stephen King Book Covers - The Covers Collection

The Covers Collection Fine Art Prints

Suntup Editions is pleased to announce the release of The Covers Collection. A extremely limited edition series of fine art prints featuring the cover artwork from Stephen King’s most beloved novels, signed by the original artist.

Experience your favorite Stephen King classics like never before. Suntup Editions has been working with the artists of Stephen King’s 1st trade edition hardcovers to showcase the cover art in a way previously unimagined. Now, for the first time, Stephen King collectors are able to showcase the classic artwork in the way it was initially intended to be viewed.

Bold, vibrant, up close, and printed on our highest quality paper, experience the full impact of the art. When publishers are presented with the artwork, they often alter the size or tone to fit the printing parameters, and add the title and author text. Now, you are able to appreciate the artwork in a way never before seen, signed by the original artist.

These Collector Grade 1st Edition, original cover art prints are exclusively available through Suntup Editions and are limited to only 100 copies each worldwide. Printed on our finest quality paper, in the highest detail imaginable, you can appreciate every brush stroke and pencil line of the original artwork from your favorite classics.

Collectible Archival Art Folio

We realize many of you will not have the wall space to display all of the beautiful prints in this series. Don’t let that stop you from collecting them. We have made available a custom, foil stamped archival Art Folio Box, designed to fit both print sizes. Protect your prints from dust, dirt and other pollutants. These folio boxes shield and protect the prints and are constructed of archival quality board lined with acid-free paper, with the exterior covered in a beautiful buckram cloth. Safely store, view and appreciate your prints in this archival art folio box.

The Covers Collection Kick-Off — Three Spectacular Illustrations

Prints in The Covers Collection series will be released at the rate of one per month. For the launch of this exciting new series, we are starting out with three cover illustrations: The Shining by Dave Christensen, Pet Sematary by Linda Fennimore and Misery by Bob Giusti.

“I was knocked out when I saw these prints.
I have never seen Pet Sematary reproduced to look this wonderful.” — Linda Fennimore, Illustrator for Pet Sematary

The Covers Collection Subscription Club

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to own all the prints, with matching numbers by subscribing to the series. As a Covers Collection Subscriber, you will receive a 20% discount on all prints purchased, and you are guaranteed a matching number on all releases.* (See below for details.)

* Some prints may have a smaller limitation than 100. So if matching numbers is important to you, you will want to order early and be sure to be within the first 50. The lowest limitation will be 50, and the highest 100.

Here’s How It Works:

Make a single up-front payment for the first three in-stock prints at a 20% discount. After that, you will receive all future prints as they are released at 20% off the retail price, and you will be billed and shipped automatically for each print.

There is no obligation to remain a subscriber beyond your initial purchase of the first three prints. You may cancel at any time without penalty, although you will risk losing your matching number on future prints.

As a subscriber, you may also purchase the optional archival Art Folio Box at a 15% discount off the retail price, and all frame upgrades at 10% off the retail price.

Subscriptions are Limited

There are a limited number of subscriptions available, and once it is sold out, it may not be offered again.

Remarque Print Subscription

A limited selection of artwork in the series will include an original Remarque on the first 20 prints. Your up-front subscription price for a Remarque Print Subscription, at launch, will include the first two Remarqued prints, which are Pet Sematary and The Shining. For subsequent Remarque prints, you will be given right of first refusal on future prints with a Remarque. At that time you will have an opportunity to upgrade your non-Remarqued print for that month, to the Remarqued version.

You must be among the first 20 customers who order a Remarque print or a Remarque subscription in order to qualify. Once 20 individual Remarque prints or Remarque subscriptions are sold, this subscription will no longer be available for purchase. By purchasing an individual Remarque print, or a Remarque subscription, you are guaranteed right of first refusal on future Remarque prints.

Remarques are only available on the large print (18” x 24”), so when you purchase a Remarque subscription, you are subscribing to the large size prints. Limit one Remarque print per order (per print.)

“I think these prints are spectacular. I have not seen better. They’re really perfection and have held to the colors well. If I put the print right next to my original of Misery, it’s spot on.” — Bob Giusti, Illustrator for Misery

Optional Framed Prints

All prints are offered with an option to purchase framing for the print. If you are a Covers Collection Subscriber, as each new print is released, you will have an opportunity to upgrade your next print to the framing option. You will also receive a 10% discount off the retail price of the frame. If you do not upgrade, you will simply receive the next print unframed.

The first time you purchase a Covers Collection Subscription, if you want a frame for any of the first three prints, you must add the applicable “Subscription Add-on: Frame” product to your cart. Discounts will be applied automatically.

Two framing options are available. If you would like to make sure all your framed prints have the same frame in order to be consistent, we offer a frame that will be the same for all prints in the series. We also offer a custom frame based on the artwork.

Print Number Requests

Numbers are assigned in the order in which a completed order is received. This includes both individual and subscription orders. Number requests may be made at checkout, but are not guaranteed.

Golden Ticket

Growing up, Roald Dahl was my favorite author. Inspired by his work, we decided to ship one random order with a Golden Ticket. We’ll call it the Super Amazing Golden Suntup Ticket. I know, not as cool sounding as Willy Wonka, but you get the idea. What does the lucky recipient of this ticket win? An original drawing signed by one of The Covers Collection artists. One-of-a-kind. Numbered 1/1. Kapow.

Terms & Conditions:

  • Up-front subscription cost is non-refundable
  • You are not locked into anything. Cancel your subscription at any time without penalty.
  • For subscriptions, after the first three prints are delivered, the fourth and all subsequent prints will be automatically shipped to you and billed to your credit card. This will continue until you cancel, or the program ends.
  • Limit one remarque print per customer per print.)
  • Have fun. Stress less.

“These prints are as good as I’ve ever seen. They are beautiful. The paper looks like the most expensive quality paper, it’s very thick, and I love the watercolor texture of the paper itself.” — Dave Christensen, Illustrator for The Shining

Questions We Think You Might Ask

(QWTYMA for short; not to be confused with the QWERTY keyboard.)

Technically, we are not asked the following questions ‘frequently’. In fact, at the launch of the series, we have not been asked any questions. Although I’m sure we will, and quite likely many we have not even thought of. If that happens, we’ll be sure to add it. We present, our FAQ in training:

No, you don't have to. You can purchase prints individually. The series kick-off includes three prints. You can purchase any one of the three if you'd like. You would only purchase three up-front if you decided to subscribe to the series. In that case, you get a 20% discount off the price of all three, and all future prints.
We use 300 g/m2 exhibition quality, fine art papers which have a 100% cotton base.

Yes, the paper on which the art is printed is Acid-Free, Lignin-Free, Chlorine-Free, and has no Optical Brighteners. It is also Gluten Free, Soy Free and Dairy Free.

Well, that’s all true except for the Gluten, Soy and Dairy part. The inks used are archival with a fade resistance and print longevity of 200 years. The folio box lining is Acid-Free and archival.

Acid and lignin cause paper to deteriorate. If an acidic product comes into contact with paper, the acid can migrate, causing permanent damage and decay. In terms of Optical Brightening Agents (OBAs), to make paper look brighter, some manufacturers add chemicals to the base stock or coating. The paper we use does not have this chemical coating.

The prints in The Covers Collection are Giclée prints, which are fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers. We use a top-of-the-line art printer, which produces the finest, most exceptional prints we have ever seen.
We stamp all prints at the lower right corner with the publisher’s mark. This is a seal impressed onto the print as a distinguishing mark using a cast iron and brass embosser. Makes it official-like, ya know. And it looks fancy.
Yes. When we presented this idea to the artists, they were over the moon with it. These prints are approved and hand-signed by the artist. No autopens in this house!
Not all prints will have a Remarque, and the ones that do will be the large size only. Not enough space on the 11” x 17” for that.
Currently, there are fifteen prints planned in the series, and ten artists aboard The Good Ship Lollipop, with more to follow. It’s a sweet trip, baby.
Most of the prints will run at a total limitation of 115. The breakdown is as follows: 100 available for sale, 10 Artist Proofs and 5 Publisher Proofs for private distribution. In some cases, the limitation will be 60 prints. The breakdown in this case is as follows: 50 available for sale, 5 Artist Proofs and 5 Publisher proofs for private distribution. It is important to be aware of this, because if matching numbers matters to you, you will want to get in early.
Nope, sorry. Most Remarques will be the same for all prints, but if the artist decides to do different sketches across the run of 20, you will receive a random sketch.
Yes. Let’s say you have a Remarque Subscription (large prints only), and you would like a smaller version of any of your prints, you can purchase that print individually and still receive 20% off the retail price because you are a subscriber.
Yes to both. Remarque prints are available to subscribers and non-subscribers. However, this is limited to the first 20 orders received. Also, subscribers will get 20% off the retail price.
If you are a subscriber, you are guaranteed matching numbers unless you cancel. If you purchase an individual print, we can try to match your number but it’s not guaranteed.
We can't guarantee number rights if you cancel. However, if the number is still available we will try to accommodate your request.
Yes, each print will have a standard frame & matte option, as well as a more individualized option.
Yes. It is used to denote more than one Remarque. Although according to Merriam-Webster, a Remarque is a drawn, etched, or incised scribble or sketch done on the margin of a plate or stone and removed before the regular printing. So, although Remarque is widely used today to describe an original sketch an artist makes in a book, or in this case, an art print, it isn’t really the right word for it. But we don’t mind if you don't.
A lot. (Kidding. It's not too bad. Although, shipping framed prints internationally can be costly, so you may want to purchase the print and have it framed locally.)
Flat like the sales receipt that has been in your back pocket for a week.
We will try to accommodate your request but it’s not guaranteed.
The subscriptions are limited and will be sold out as soon as one or all of the prints in the launch are sold. We may or may not offer it again. We can’t say at this stage.
If you only want one of your prints to be a different size, we would suggest purchasing that print individually so you don’t lose your subscriber rights. You would still receive your subscriber discount on any additional items purchased. Otherwise, we would cancel your subscription and place you in a new subscription for the new size (we may or may not be able to match your existing number.)
Yes. Every print comes with a matching certificate signed by the artist and publisher. Some certificates may have a facsimile artist signature in the case where an artist has a challenge signing that many certificates. Artist signatures on the prints themselves are always hand-signed.
The signed limited edition prints currently being offered for sale will never be reprinted again by Suntup Editions. This is an edition print that is numbered as such and will never be reprinted in any limited form again, in the sizes currently available. We may offer unsigned prints in the future that are not part of any signed limited series. We may also introduce an oversize canvas gallery wrap version measuring 40" wide for some prints, in an extremely limited edition.
We will try to accommodate all requests on a first come, first serve basis – although requests are not guaranteed.
Yes, several. We have the Gold Foil version, the glow-in-the-dark version, and the Platinum Edition. You will need to collect all of these in order to be eligible to purchase the Pearlescent Blue Ultra-Deluxe Grandmaster Metal Print variant.
Absolutely. Have him contact us, and we’ll hook him up.
