This is a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind trilogy that brings classic literatures of the world together with legendary graphic artists and illustrators. It showcases illustrustrated interpretations of classic literature from the 1800s. Edgar Allen Poe's visions are presented by several artists, including Maxon Crumb and Gris Grimly. Shelly, Keats and Byron are all visualised here, as are the Bront sisters. Coleridge's great poems are represented, with The Rime of the Ancient Mariner interpreted by British comics legend Hunt Emerson, among many more.
