 I flipping love Edgar Allen Poe!!!

I remember reading this, and loving the illustrations, especially since this was the book that introduced me to one of Poe's lesser known tales!

This book means so much to me.

It was the first Poe book I ever received. Ever.

I opened up The Masque of the Red Death, and I don't think I was ever the same.

Thank you!

I've read this last month and I was impressed by the artwork, I love Edgar A. Poe anyway and that was a perfect reflection of the novels. Congratulations. :)

I had no idea you were on Deviantart! I read this book when I was in 8th grade and I'm in 11th now, this is so surreal! Amazing illustrations by the way. Fit perfectly.

Oh my gosh!

I'm so excited right now. I didn't know that you had a deviantart account! I've had this book for years, and the illustrations have been somewhat of an influence for me. The style of art is very unique; somewhat macabre, yet pleasant to look at. Very early 1900's. I love it! Thank you for being an influence for me. :heart:

YES!!! This is what I remember your work from! I love your work with this book. It brings Poe's writing to life and compliments it in such a way that I can't describe it. I especially loved the way you portrayed Hop Frog and Pluto the cat.

I just bought this one at the best used book sale! Finished it the other night and loved them all. Of course, the House of Usher is my favourite story of Poes, but i love what you did with all of them, especially The Black Cat. Your concept of Pluto delights me.

Haha! Thanks! I was actually just working at a summer camp where half the girls were preppy princesses and nobody understood Poe. D: So sad, because that's where I was reading and thouroughly enjoying it.
