New York, NY; London, UK (May 13, 2013) – Stephen King’s new novel JOYLAND, which will be published as a paperback original on June 4 by the award-winning Hard Case Crime line from Titan Books, will also be released a week later in three hardcover limited editions for collectors, two of them signed by the author. All three hardcover editions will feature both a new cover painting and nine black-and-white interior illustrations by the legendary Robert McGinnis, the painter responsible for more than 1,000 classic book covers as well as the iconic movie posters for Breakfast at Tiffany’s and the original Sean Connery James Bond movies. JOYLAND will be the first book ever fully illustrated by McGinnis, whose 70-year career includes induction into the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame alongside Norman Rockwell and Maxfield Parrish. In a nod to the look of classic crime novels, the hardcover editions will also feature a map on the back cover, drawn by Susan Hunt Yule, of the Joyland amusement park where the story takes place.
