‘You didn’t want to be this way. They hurt you – this modern Prometheus.’

Exploring the origins of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and featuring multiple historical figures, The Haunting of Villa Diodati (2020) combines and revitalises Doctor Who’s institutions of Gothic horror and the ‘celebrity historical’. This volume delves into its inspiration in the apocalyptic darkness of 1816, its affinities with the Romantic poetry of Byron and Percy Shelley, and its marriage of Frankenstein’s images and themes with the monstrous creations of Doctor Who tradition.

from the announcement:

This book draws on documentation from the late John Nathan-Turner’s personal archive to present virtually a day by day breakdown of what the Producer was doing, who he met, where he went and why … and putting it all in the context of the show at the time … It’s a superb time capsule of some of the elements of the Producer’s job which have previously been overlooked.

THE INVISIBLE ARTIST

hardcover original (UK limited edition)

publisher info:
written by Jeff Cummings
hardcover (limited edition) / softcover
Candy Jar Books
£ 30.00 (hardcover) / £ 14.99 (softcover)

solicitation copy:

Since 1976, Jeff Cummins has been a prolific artist on many book covers, album covers, and posters. He thinks of himself as the invisible artist due to the fact that much of his work, although known – and out there, most people are unaware that it was Jeff who did it.

He is well-known for his work on the Target novelisations of the 1970s/1980s, most notably The Face of EvilThe Three Doctors and Horror of Fang Rock, as well as cover art for several of the New Adventures of the 1990s, including the seminalDimension Riders and Conundrum.

Not only does this book cover his Doctor Who work, inside you’ll also find stories of The Beatles, of Paul McCartney and his wife, Linda, you will discover the role Jeff had in the marketing of the blockbuster film Back to the Future, painting such artists as Eric Clapton, Yes, Blondie, (and like Chris Achilleos), Whitesnake… and so many more. If a pop/rock artist was popular in the late’70s/early-80s, the chances are you’ll find them in The Invisible Artist.
