Today marks the debut of visionary painter MARK RYDEN 's first official children's book, "Sweet Wishes," created in collaboration with fellow painter and partner in crime MARION PECK and based on their short film of the same name. Drawing on their extensive collections of vintage children's toys and ephemera, the artists cast some of their favorite dolls as the story's protagonists and photographed them in lush fantasy sets to illustrate the short story of Dolly, Baby, and Bear and what happens when they are granted a wish from a magical fairy. The book is available now as both a normal hardcover ($20) and a boxed Special Edition (250 copies, $300) that includes the signed and numbered copy of the original picture book, a DVD of the "Sweet Wishes" movie and a Sweet Wishes bookmark, all housed in a two-pieced pink satin box. Like all Mark Ryden merch, this set will surely disappear instantly, so move fast or be forever sad. HAVE A LOOK:
