The Covers Collection – Cujo

In November 2017, we released the cover art print for Firestarter.

The Road To Misery – Part 4: Knowing When to Move On

Printing Misery: The Paper

We love the words. Or more specifically, the right words strung together to make a sentence. What’s ‘right’ though? Well, if you read it, and feel somehow changed after reading it, then I would say it’s right. I have loved poetry for a long time. If there were ever the perfect choice of words, placed Read More

Sneak Peek: Rick Berry’s Misery

Here is a sneak peek at Rick Berry’s magnificent artwork for our forthcoming Limited Edition of Misery by Stephen King. Rick’s been devoted to this project non-stop.

The Road To Misery – Part 3: The Ardent Bliss of Youth

Much like Suntup Editions’ first publication, The Eyes of the Dragon Art Portfolio, the limited edition of Misery had its origins in 1987. Someone once told me that there are no coincidences.

The Road To Misery – Part 2: On The Train Tracks

“The most important things are the hardest things to say.

But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important Read More

The Road to Misery – Part 1: The Persistence of Memory

“Art consists of the persistence of memory.” Stephen King, Misery Memory is a strange and curious thing. It has a way of twisting the past to suit the present. More often than not, memory distorts just as much as it may recall. There have been several experiences over the years that I would have liked Read More

Misery Lettered Edition “Binder’s Dummy”

A prototype “binder’s dummy” for the Lettered Edition of Misery has arrived! We use this for box sizing.
