A limited number of advance copies of James Jean’s (interviewed) book featuring work from his NYC solo show will be released at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Published by Chronicle Books, “Kindling” presents 12 of James’ visual mix of abstract and illustrative works from the show, along with his detailed preliminary sketch for the work on the reverse side, printed in a removable large poster format.

Check out the video above for a look through the book and read on for more after the jump…

The book comes in a nicely designed keepsake portfolio and the prints within can be flipped through like a regular book or can be removed to make some great art for the walls. For those not attending Comic-Con, the book is set to be released after August 12 and can be pre-ordered for $29.95.
