POE: STORIES & POEMS

A hand-numbered, illustrated Deluxe Limited Edition

Signed by award-winning artist John Jude Palencar


The haunting tales and poems of Edgar Allan Poe -- including The Masque of the Red Death, The Raven, The Fall of the House of Usher and others -- are offered in a Deluxe Limited Edition, featuring eight illustrations by artist John Jude Palencar. Commissioned exclusively for this volume, the illustrations brilliantly display Palencar's meticulous technical mastery and darkly surreal imagination.

Eight full-color plates, including a frontispiece, are hand-tipped in and protected by translucent overlays. Black-and-white illustrations by the artist adorn the endpapers and colophon page, and add ornamentation to each story and poem. The slipcase bears a matching full-color plate and is lined in crushed velvet to protect the deeply inlaid, two-color cover design of this leather-bound limited edition. A strictly limited, hand-numbered edition of just 1200.

Inventor of the psychological tale, prime shaper of the science-fiction, fantasy, and horror genres, Edgar Allan Poe's vision of the increasing strangeness of so-called 'real life' was so influential that, as Arthur Conan Doyle wrote, every latter writer “sees the footmarks of Poe always in front of him.”

And not just writers. Film-makers, musicians, painters, and comic-book artists -- modern artists and thinkers of all kinds – are also, in the words of Stephen King, “the children of Poe.”

Now, Easton Press and artist John Jude Palencar present, EDGAR ALLAN POE: STORIES & POEMS – an exclusive original Deluxe Illustrated Edition limited to 1,200 hand-numbered copies each personally autographed by the award-winning artist, John Jude Palencar.

The haunting genius of Poe and Palencar.

This beautiful limited edition collects Poe's most important and influential works: the chilling story of revenge, “The Cask of Amontillado,” the landmark of supernatural horror tale, “The Fall of the House of Usher,” the haunting poems, Annabel Lee and The Raven, and more.

“There is no exquisite beauty,” Poe once wrote, “without some strangeness,” and for this deluxe edition, Easton Press has chosen an artist who shares Poe's vision: the multiple Spectrum and Chesley Award winner, John Jude Palencar, whose evocative and disquieting images are testament to his belief “that mystery in the work is of the utmost importance.”

The Deluxe Illustrated Edition EDGAR ALLAN POE: STORIES & POEMS features eight new full-color paintings that brilliantly display Palencar's meticulous technical mastery and darkly surreal imagination – and these stunning artworks are exclusive to this limited 1,200 copy autographed Deluxe Illustrated Edition.
