A Portfolio

Denis Tiani


The career of Denis Tiani starts in the early 1970s and continues to today. His legendary work, which includes hundreds of idiosyncratic, highly individual artworks published in Witchcraft & Sorcery, Nyctalops, Weirdbook, Whispers and other seminal small press publications, is now collected for the first time in a well-printed, 350+ page book, including a generous selection of his color artworks and sculptures. There is a fine introduction by Jason Van Hollander, and a warm tribute afterword by Harry O. Morris.
       There’s never been an artist like Denis in the small press. With his self-published fanzines, especially the well-received Department 99 (published in miniscule editions of under 20 copies), this is virtually your only chance to see Denis’s work in a handsome, easy-to-read and hold format.
       Our edition is small in size, and small in quantity: only 250 copies for sale. Cloth bound with stamping on the spine and front, four-color endpapers, heavy matte art stock, and a handsome dustjacket, the book also has head and tail bands and a ribbon marker. Each copy is signed by Denis Tiani and Jason Van Hollander.
       Whether you have all the Centipede Press artist series books (in this format, we have published John Stewart, Harry O. Morris, and Don Punchatz), or you are new to the series, this is an outstanding book with an outstandingly low price and a terrific value. Don’t miss it! Some page spreads are shown below. The book is up for order now, and will start shipping Monday, November 4.
