Jim Henson's Tale of Sand
by Jim Henson and Ramon Perez


Overview - The Eisner Award-winning graphic novel adaptation of a lost screenplay by American icon Jim Henson.

Between 1967 and 1974, Jim Henson and his longtime writing partner Jerry Juhl developed three drafts of a screenplay for a feature length film called Tale of Sand.

It was during the development of the final draft of the screenplay that Jim Henson became involved in the production of Sesame Street and The Muppet Show, and he left the experimental filmmaking of his youth behind to concentrate on the creations that would in time make him a household name.

Tale of Sand has remained in the vaults of The Jim Henson Company ever since. It is the only feature-length screenplay written by Jim Henson that he was never able to produce during his lifetime.

Breathtakingly illustrated by Ram n K. P rez (Wolverine and the X-Men, Jane), Tale of Sand was hailed as a groundbreaking achievement upon release, winning two Harvey Awards, the Joe Shuster Award, and three Eisner Awards including Best Graphic Album.
