Author Neil Gaiman offers support to Bram Stoker bronze bust campaign.
As we previously reported, noted sculptor Bryan Moore has launched a Kickstarter Campaign to help fund his latest project, a gorgeous bronze bust of DRACULA author Bram Stoker, a project formed in collusion with the Dublin Writers Museum and geared to tie into World Dracula Day on May 26th, 2016.
And now, author and dark visionary Neil Gaiman, the man behind such works as SANDMAN, CORALINE and AMERICAN GODS is among the projects most famous backers.
“We’re incredibly grateful for Mr. Gaiman’s kindness and generosity” says Moore, the sculptor who has successfully crowdfunded efforts to place busts of H.P. Lovecraft at the Providence Athenaeum Library in Rhode Island and Edgar Allan Poe in Massachusetts at the Boston Public Library. “It’s quite humbling for the entire project team and I to enjoy working with Mr. Gaiman on this very worthy project to recognize one of literature’s most notable authors and creator of the iconic character of Count Dracula.”
Gaiman has signed ten copies of “The Annotated Dracula” with editor Les Klinger for project donors, which sold out immediately on the Kickstarter page.
Moore continues “We weren’t surprised at all that these signed books were snapped up so quickly as we’re offering many signed books from prolific authors who specialize in the vampire milieu such as David J. Skal, Steve Niles, Stephen Jones and Bram’s own great grand-nephew Dacre Stoker. Being able to offer the signed books from Mr. Gaiman and Mr. Klinger was simply the icing on the cake.”
Dracula, vampire and Bram Stoker fans needn’t be disappointed at the sold out Gaiman books, though. A treasure trove to choose from, there are books, jewelry, model kits, posters, hoodies and even a chance to score a bronze copy of the actual Bram Stoker bust itself.
The project is indeed rollicking along but still needs many helping hands. To lend yours click below!
