I AM LEGEND - ARTIST SIGNED GIFT EDITION - 1 / 1000.

by Richard Matheson.

Artwork by Allen Williams.

Signed by Allen Williams.

This may be the most terrifying novel you will ever read. - William Campbell

This quote from mystery writer William Campbell Gault graced the first edition cover of what would become one of the most influential and adapted works of the 20th century. Originally published in 1954, Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend ushered in a different kind of novel, defying and transcending genre to combine elements of horror and science fiction within a post-apocalyptic frame. 

I Am Legend is the story of Robert Neville, who appears to be the sole survivor of a pandemic that has turned the human race into a crossbreed of zombies and vampires. Robert must hunt by day, hide by night, and most importantly, survive.  In 2012, the Horror Writers Association gave I Am Legend the special Vampire Novel of the Century Award. The novel and Richard Matheson are often credited for creating the zombie-vampire genre. 

ARTIST GIFT EDITION Signed by Allen Williams, the Artist Gift edition is limited to 1000 copies and features a dust jacket with wrap-around artwork. It is a full cloth smyth-sewn binding with two-hits foil stamping, and printed endsheets. It is the only edition of the three with the dust jacket. The book is printed offset, and is housed in a unique embossed paper-covered slipcase with cloth on the upper and lower sections.
