When Edward Gorey Illustrated Dracula: Two Masters of the Macabre, Together

When Edward Gorey Illustrated Dracula: Two Masters of the Macabre, Together | sbooking the world | Scoop.it

As if knowing that the great Edward Goreyillustrated a small stable of little-known and wonderful paperback covers for literary classics weren’t enough of a treat, how thrilling it is to know that he also illustrated the occasional entire volume, from classic fairy tales to H. G. Wells’s War of the Worlds to T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. But out of all his literary reimaginings, by far the greatest fit for Gorey’s singular brand of darkly delightful visual magic is Edward Gorey’sDracula (public library), a special edition of the Bram Stoker classic originally published in 1977 and eventually adapted as a magnificent toy theater of die-cut foldups and foldouts. Gorey’s illustrations of the characters are terrifyingly charming and charmingly terrific:

"In 2012, the world came to London for the Olympics and I went out to meet it. I read my way around all the globe’s 196 independent countries – plus one extra territory chosen by blog visitors – sampling one book from every nation.

I read a story from Swaziland, a novel from Nicaragua, a book from Brunei, a… well, you get the picture." Ann Morgan

Harry Clarke's Illustrations For Edgar Allan Poe - Bank Holiday

Harry Clarke's Illustrations For Edgar Allan Poe - Bank Holiday | sbooking the world | Scoop.it

Ireland’s Harry Clarke drew these for some Edgar Allan Poe books in the 20s. Alongside his illustrations, Clarke also worked with his brother making secular and religious stained glass windows, they’re a pretty big deal, but these creepy monotone prints are the best. Ireland put him on a stamp, too.

Gisela Moniz's insight:

Este scoop é uma verdadeira preciosidade.

Para Maurício de Sousa, a criação é infinita - História em Quadrinhos

Para Maurício de Sousa, a criação é infinita - História em Quadrinhos | sbooking the world | Scoop.it

Em entrevista exclusiva, cartunista fala sobre a evolução da Turma da Mônica.

Maurício de Sousa está interessadíssimo em estudar a abertura de zonas de exclusão tarifárias nas quais seja possível instalar gráficas capazes de produzir livros com isenção de impostos. É que sua próxima graphic novel – Turma da Mônica – Laços – está vindo da China, novo Eldorado do mercado editorial, onde os preços são tão baixos que vale a pena atravessar dois oceanos para imprimir os álbuns. A nova investida do pai da Mônica já está no segundo título – o primeiro foi Astronauta – e quer capturar o leitor adulto.
