In 1963, The Macmillan Company published Tales and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe, with an afterword by Clifton Fadiman and illustrations by Russell Hoban. Hoban died this week of complications from quadruple bypass surgery, but his work as an illustrator, children’s author, and novelist lives on. All of the images in the following online gallery have been scanned by yours truly from a copy of Tales and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe that I bought a few years ago at the annual book sale to benefit the Regina Symphony; I haven’t tried to equalize the space around the images but instead have left them as they appear on the page, printed at variable distances from the gutter. This post is part one of two. Enjoy! And don’t just take. Link.
