"Not to go on all-Fours; that is the Law. Are we not Men?"

The story of a renegade scientist attempting to turn wild animals into human beings, The Island of Dr. Moreau has thrilled and shocked readers ever since it first appeared in 1896. Today, when 'genetic engineering' is giving us unimagined power to create life, H.G. Wells' landmark portrait of the misuse of scientific knowledge is more relevant than ever.

Easton Press and artist Ivica Stevanovic present a unique new edition of this Science Fiction classic: H.G. Wells' The Island of Doctor Moreau, an exclusive original Deluxe Illustrated Edition limited to exactly 1,200 hand-numbered copies each personally autographed by the illustrator, Ivica Stevanovic.

The Island of Doctor Moreau with exclusive new artwork.

In the final five years of the 19th century, H.G. Wells effectively created modern Science Fiction with four extraordinary novels: The Time Machine, The Invisible Man, The War of the Worlds, and his most controversial work, The Island of Dr. Moreau.

Often adapted and hugely influential, The Island of Dr. Moreau is Wells' most gripping and provocative exploration of the limits of “human nature” and science's dangerous totalitarian quest to control and alter the natural world.

To illustrate this deluxe edition, Easton Press turned to Serbian illustrator, comic artist, and designer, Ivica Stevanovic. With a versatile technique that mixes pen and ink, watercolor, and digital painting, and a daring genius for portraying imaginary creatures, Stevanovic is the perfect artist for H.G. Wells' prophetic tale.

The Deluxe Illustrated Edition H.G. Wells' The Island of Doctor Moreau features eleven full-color plates, each plate individually hand-tipped into each volume and protected by a translucent overlay. And these stunning artworks are exclusive to this limited 1,200 copy autographed Deluxe Illustrated Edition.
