The Exorcist: The 40th Anniversary Revised Limited Edition Cover Artwork by Caniglia

As I mentioned a while back, Lonely Road Books will be publishing a special Limited Edition of The Exorcist: The 40th Anniversary Revised Edition by William Peter Blatty.  The book sold out just 30 hours after it was announced, which is excellent for the collectors who managed to snag a copy, and production is moving along smoothly.  In fact, today I’m extremely pleased to unveil Caniglia’s incredible cover painting for the book, which I absolutely love:

Caniglia is now working on the interior artwork and I’ll try to post a few more samples between now and publication.  Feel free to post your thoughts in the comments!

    Hey folks,
    Unfortunately at the time of your of the special sale of the limited edition of the Exorcist I was taken fairly seriously ill. So, if anyone cancels out, I would much appreciate it if you reserve a copy for me.
    Many thanks for your consideration.

    Hey Angelo! They did sell very quickly, didn’t they? Drop Mindy a line because she has a Waiting List. Sorry to hear you missed out and I hope you’re doing better now!

    Hi Brian!

    I absolutely love Caniglia’s stuff! This cover painting looks brilliant, and seriously creepy! The quality of Canigla’s art is just amazing and I think this cover fits perfectly for THE EXORCIST. I can’t wait to see the interior artwork! 🙂

      Thanks, Paul! I will post some of the interiors as we move through production. I know Caniglia is a HUGE fan of this book and is giving this work everything he’s got!
