Greg Manchess: Above the Timberlineby Matthew Innis |
The Society is pleased to present a selection of work from Greg Manchess’ latest stunning masterpieceÂ Above the Timberline. This lavishly painted novel tells the story of the son of a famed explorer searching for his stranded father, and a lost city buried under the snows of a future frozen Earth.
When it started to snow, it didnâ€™t stop for 1,500 years. The Pole Shift that ancient climatologists talked about finally came, the topography was ripped apart and the weather of the world was changedâ€”forever. Now the Earth is covered in snow, and to unknown depths in some places.
In this world, Wes Singleton leaves the academy in search of his father, the famed explorer Galen Singleton, who was searching for a lost city until Galenâ€™s expedition was cut short after being sabotaged. But Wes believes his father is still alive somewhere above the timberline.
Fully illustrated with over 120 pieces of full-page artwork throughout,Â Above the TimberlineÂ is a stunning and cinematic combination of art and novel.
An Opening Reception will take place on Thursday, September 28th.
