Kklak: The Doctor Who Art of Chris Achilléos
Candy Jar is pleased to announced an updated paperback version of Kklak: The Doctor Who Art of Chris Achilléos. Featuring an unpublished Peter Capaldi illustration by Chris, this edition also has contributions from Chris’ daughters, Esther and Anna, his nephew Thomas, and his wife, Natasha. Kklak! The Doctor Who Art of Chris Achilleos covers for the official Target novelisations, which began in the early ‘70s, defined a generation’s image of the Doctor and his adventures – particularly after the show disappeared from British screens in the late ‘80s.
Lavishly detailed, with psychedelic overtones and an unapologetically pulpy sensibility, these covers perfectly captured the eccentric appeal of the classic series.
Kklak: The Doctor Who Art of Chris Achilléos collects the entirety of Achilléos’ Doctor Who artwork in chronological order, along with commentary from Achilléos himself (as well as some fans) – presenting the definitive guide to his seminal work.
The book also includes a small contribution from twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi and a foreword from Achilléos’ long-time friend and collaborator, the late Terrance Dicks.
Featuring every one of Achilléos’ Doctor Who designs, as well as never before seen material giving insight into his creative process, Kklak: the Doctor Who Art of Chris Achilléos is released 2020 by Candy Jar Books.
