The Art of Sherlock Holmes Global II – Book
Review of the „The Sherlock Holmes Society of London“:
„A fourth volume in Phil Growick’s continuing project to commission original artwork to illustrate a range of new Sherlock Holmes stories. As with the earlier volumes, a share of the proceeds from the book goes to Stepping Stones School at Undershaw, the Happy Life Children’s Home in Nairobi, and the American Cancer Society.
This is a sumptuous book, featuring thirteen stories with accompanying artwork produced in a variety of colourful mediums from artists across the globe. The stand-out works for me were three oil on canvas creations by Jolanda Richter (illustrating Tony Reynolds, ‘The Adventure of the Medium’), Davide Querin (for Nick Cardillo’s ‘The Adventure of the Burning Man’), and William Oxer (for Robert Perret’s ‘The Mystery of the Change of Art’). The tales in the book are no less colourful, intriguing and satisfying, and include contributions from some recognisable names: David Marcum, Mike Hogan, Daniel Victor and others. While all of the narratives are well chosen, my personal favourites were ‘The Case of the Cursed Clock’ (Gayle Lange Puhl), ‘Harbinger of Death’ (Geri Schear) and ‘The Coffee House Girl’ (David Marcum).
A worthy project and an inspiring blend of creativity.“
