Brian Wood's art and design book increases in page count

SAN FRANCISCO (January 2, 2002): Writer/artist Brian Wood and publisher

AiT/Planet Lar announced today that when Wood's PUBLIC DOMAIN: A Channel

Zero DesignBook ships, it will contain 32 EXTRA pages than previously

announced, with no increase in cover price.

"When we solicited PUBLIC DOMAIN," said Wood. "I was planning a 112 page

book. But once I started putting it together and creating the pages, I

was having so much fun I didn't want to stop. Actually, I think I did

about 160 pages but then edited the weaker material out and down to 144

pages. That's 32 more than previously announced."

PUBLIC DOMAIN: A Channel Zero DesignBook, is a unique look into the

creation of the critically-acclaimed series CHANNEL ZERO, complete with

sketches, designs, illustrations, short comic stories, commentary and

production notes, and is the capstone project, along with the Couscous

Express patches and posters, to Brian Wood Month.

"I think this not only shows Bri's love for his work and his desire to

present the best product possible to his readers," publisher Larry Young

said, "but also shows our commitment to our creators to give them the

leeway to make creative decisions like this and to stay out of their

hair. If Brian says this is what's best for the book, we're behind him


PUBLIC DOMAIN: A Channel Zero DesignBook retains its original cover

price of $12.95, is 144 pages long, and will be in shops January 30th.

Twenty-four preview pages are available on the Internet at:
