When it comes to iconic stories from the master of horror Stephen King, there are few more beloved than IT, the tale of the Losers Club’s battle with a shape-shifting being older than human civilization.
IT was of course immortalized on-screen via ABC’s well-remembered 1990 TV miniseries adaptation, starring the legendary Tim Curry as Pennywise the murderous clown.
Director Andy Muschetti is also soon to bring fans an R-rated, theatrical version of IT, which is set to hit theaters on September 8th, courtesy of Warner Bros.
One of the most important parts of IT isn’t a character at all, and is actually the small town setting of Derry, Maine. An important part of Stephen King history, Derry also featured in stories like Dreamcatcher and Bag of Bones.
While we’re still a ways away from seeing what Muschetti’s film does with Derry, German artist Kassiopeya Sachenwerkler,has created an amazingly detailed model version of the town, including multiple elements sure to bring a smile to any King fan.
Included below are a few selected shots of the model Derry, with a short description of each. To see them all in high-res, click here to visit the artist’s site.

Until next time, remember, when you’re down there with him, you’ll…float…too.
