Book Preview: Above the Timberline



--Greg Manchess

Weeks away from the official launch of my novel, Above the Timberline, and here is the first of several previews of the book.

Also, for those of you who might be visiting New York City around September 28th, I have a show opening that night of twenty-five of the paintings from the novel in the third floor gallery at the Society of Illustrators. You're all invited to come by! You'll get a sneak peak at not only the originals, but I'll have some advance copies of the book there to sign.

  3. Thanks, James! I've got a few more to release soon. Very fun to make. As you know from your excellent videos and animations! It's now getting quite exciting for the early release at the Society on Sept 28th....and then the book's release date on Oct 24th! Yikes! : )

    And thanks, Kyle! I had all of my artist friends in mind when I painted it, figuring if an artist would respond well, then general audiences were more likely to...

  4. I pre-ordered the book a couple months ago and can't wait to see it. These videos are so cool. I love seeing your process. Will the originals every be available for purchase? Or any concept art? I would love to have one for inspiration and a reminder of what can be achieved with perseverance.

  7. The originals will be for sale at some point, Mike, but for now they'll be going to several shows that are in planning stages. One show will be in November 2018, at the Norman Rockwell Museum!

    I'll have to consider selling the concept stages!

    Thanks Brian, and cr!
