The Princess Bride: As You Wish: Memorable Quotes to Color is an 80-page deluxe adult coloring book featuring a beautiful gold-foiled cover and upgraded paperstock. The pen and ink illustrations will transport Princess Bride fans and coloring enthusiasts alike into locations ripped straight out of the movie, allowing the colorist to select a color palette of their choosing.
The black-and-white paperback is 80 Pages, 9.8” x 9.8” in size, and available for $16.99 (ISBN: 978-1-68405-071-0).
Based on William Goldman’s novel of the same name, 1987’s The Princess Bride is staged as a book read by grandfather (Peter Falk) to his ill grandson (Fred Savage). Falk’s character assures a romance-weary Savage that the book has much more to deliver than a simpering love story, including but not limited to fencing, fighting, torture, death, true love, giants, and pirates. Indeed, The Princess Bride offers a tongue-in-cheek fairy tale depicting stable boy-turned-pirate Westley’s journey to rescue Buttercup (Robin Wright), his true love, away from the evil prince (Chris Sarandon), whom she had agreed to marry five years after learning of what she had believed to be news of Westley’s death. With help from Prince Humperdinck’s disgruntled former employee Miracle Max (Billy Crystal), swordsman Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin), and a very large man named Fezzik (Andre the Giant), the star-crossed lovers are reunited.
The Princess Bride: As You Wish: Memorable Quotes to Color will be in stores September 26, 2017.
