Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Edgar Allan Poe was an American author, poet, editor, and literary critic, considered part of the American Romantic Movement. Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story and is generally considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre. He is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction. He was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career.

Well over 50 illustrations, all beautifully rendered in LaCombe's unique style!
Vicki T
There is no dust jacket, but the cover is thick and embossed, and the binding is canvas, so the book should hold up well.

Recommended for all Goth-Poe-Lacombe fans, and anyone that like good quality reading.

This is a beautiful presentation of Poe's stories. The book contains "Berenice," "The Black Cat," "The Island of the Fay," "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Oval Portrait," "Morella," and "Ligeia"; also, an essay, "Edgar Poe, his life and works" by Charles Baudelaire, and notes. So, you get the usual Poe fare mixed with some of his less-well-known stories.

It is sumptuously illustrated, with many pictures in color, some of them double-page, as well as many black-and-white (and red) smaller drawings. The book measures 8" x 11", so it's large enough to provide a good view of the illustrations. There is no dust jacket, but the cover is thick and embossed, and the binding is canvas, so the book should hold up well. Many of the stories are printed in white text on black background, but I had no trouble reading them, even without my glasses.

I purchased this book because I like the work of Illustrator Benjamin Lacombe, and I was afraid I'd be disappointed, but I'm delighted with the illustrations, the stories, and their presentation. I was also afraid that the illustrations would be of unhappy, big-eyed Goth girls in unlikely poses, but be assured that the illustrations are a good fit for the content of the book; it's obvious that the illustrations were created for their stories. This book will be kept next to my copy of Poe's tales illustrated by Harry Clarke.

This book although lacking a small amount in content is put together wonderfully. It has great artwork and the binding is amazing. I would highly recommend this unless you only want to get the complete works. If so, this book is not for you as it only has 8 stories and a notes and stories section on Edgar Allan Poe.
