Description

Truly a Dracula for both art and book lovers, this new edition of the most famous of vampire tales completely overhauls the notion of how a literary classic might be creatively revisited. James Pyman is already famed for his eerily exacting and hallucinatory draftsmanship, as well as for his relish for the exploration of book formats such as cartoon or children's books, and is therefore ideally suited to the illustration of this volume. Herein, Pyman returns to the original text, illustrating a line or phrase from each of the novel's 27 chapters in a series of wonderfully sinister and weirdly clinical pencil drawings. The book, which Bram Stoker composed as a series of diaries, letters and newspaper cuttings, has been typeset by designer John Morgan with a different typeface allocated to each character--each font being based on those in use at the time of the book's original publication. As a final flourish, the striking bright yellow clothbound cover, with its vivid red lettering, is based on that of the first UK edition.
