Alan Moore's UNEARTHING coming from Top Shelf

Unearthing Image 1.jpg
Luckily for the world Alan Moore is nearly as productive as he is cantankerous, and he has interesting stuff coming out at regular intervals. UNEARTHING, a biography of Moore’s close friend and mentor Steve “No Relation” Moore, was originally published in 2010 as a prose book, but Top Shelf is publishing a NEW edition with photos by Mitch Jenkins that have turned it into a narrative art book.

Because it’s Alan Moore, UNEARTHING is also “a history of  London, a mystical journey, and a tribute to human imagination.” And you can see that Jenkins’ photos fit the bill.

Co-publishers Top Shelf and Knockabout will be releasing several editions, including one in a limited edition of 300 incorporating a letterpress bookplate, hand-signed & numbered by Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins, limited to 300 copies worldwide. You can order them starting today on the Top Shelf website. Here are more deets:

  1. “originally published in 20102″

    So, it was published 18,090 years in the future and brought back here to 2012?

    Sounds really cool. I love Steve Moore and was lucky to promote his two Hercules books when I worked at Radical Publishing. Never got to meet him in person but from the interviews I set up for him, he comes across as a great individual I would have loved to have hung out with.

  3. Is there a rule that if Alan Moore is mentioned in an article he has to be described as cantankerous, crazy or crumpy? Is it me or is that annoying as hell. I cannot think of another comic guy that consistently gets henpecked.

  4. This looks boss. The graphic design looks cool as well.
