Tristran and Yvaine Climbing to the Skyship

We are so excited about how Montse Rubio (@montserubioart) captured our favorite characters in this book. In this in-text illustration, Tristran and Yvaine are climbing up the ladder to the ship in the sky. The details in this illustration, from the clothing to the wrap on Yvaine's ankle, make this such a magical piece of this new edition.

Stormhold Brothers in the Carriage

This scene is one that makes us laugh! We can't give away all the cleverness of this scene and how it's used in the book, but we can say that you are going to love it! Each brother looks a little ghostly, but also very unique. Can you pick out Primus or Tertius? What about Septimus? You are going to "die" of delight when you see these on the page of the book.

Tristran Walking by the Light of the Babylon Candle

In the book, Tristran is given the Babylon candle by a "small hairy person" and he first uses it to transport to where the star fell. This tip-in shows him as he's wading through the clouds, the candle in hand, the glass snowdrop in his pocket, and determination in his gaze.

Tristran and Yvaine with Stormhold Castle

Montse has a way with capturing people and this tip-in shows that! We love how she's given us a closeup of the main characters looking towards the night sky. And, of course, we had to include the majestic Stormhold Castle in the distance, a captivating element that adds a touch of wonder to this already magical scene.

Neil Gaiman

About the Author

Neil Gaiman was born in Hampshire, UK, and now lives in the United States near Minneapolis. As a child he discovered his love of books, reading, and stories, devouring the works of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, James Branch Cabell, Edgar Allan Poe, Michael Moorcock, Ursula K. LeGuin, Gene Wolfe, and G.K. Chesterton. A self-described "feral child who was raised in libraries," Gaiman credits librarians with fostering a life-long love of reading.

Neil Gaiman is credited with being one of the creators of modern comics, as well as an author whose work crosses genres and reaches audiences of all ages. He is listed in the Dictionary of Literary Biography as one of the top ten living post-modern writers and is a prolific creator of works of prose, poetry, film, journalism, comics, song lyrics, and drama.

Gaiman has achieved cult status and attracted increased media attention, with recent profiles in The New Yorker magazine and by CBS News Sunday Morning.
