PoeOctober 20, 2009
I love these illustrations E. McKnight Kauffer did for a collection of Edgar Allen Poe’s works. The surreal subject matter fits well with Poe’s wonderful writing. They’re mysterious and unsettling and quite beautiful. I also like the fact that they’re a bit of a departure from what I’ve seen of Kauffer’s other work, though he worked in a variety of styles. I instantly think of animation when I see these. It would be beautiful to see these brought to life and together to form a dream-story of this world.
