Renowned artist David Plunkert takes readers on a dark journey into the gothic stories of Edgar Allan Poe.

The Classics Reimagined series is a library of stunning collector's editions of unabridged classic novels illustrated by contemporary artists from around the world. Each artist offers his or her own unique, visual, interpretation of the most well-loved, widely read, and avidly collected literature from renowned authors.
