- Interpretations From 76 Artists/Illustrators

From his iconic Captain James T. Kirk through the steely resolve of TJ Hooker, the irreverence of Denny Crane or the seemingly hundreds of smaller roles that have filled his career, William Shatner has shown an uncanny ability to alternately (and sometimes simultaneously) embrace and transcend those preconceptions about him. Perhaps this is nowhere exhibited better than on his recent musical album with Ben Folds: speaking (not singing, of course) with open candor at times about his fortunes and failings, it becomes clear that the person who has played these characters has so much more to say than the characters themselves.
Today, he continues to produce with a voracity and enthusiasm unrivaled by his peers. Whether it’s a comedic or dramatic role, a gameshow, voice-work, or even a seemingly lowly breakfast cereal commercial, each thing he touches is elevated to a plane that’s all his own. This hard-bound, illustrated collection brings together artistic representations of William Shatner from all phases of his colorful career.
