It’s Edgar Allan Poe Season

There are many excellent illustrated volumes of Edgar Allan Poe stories, but this  1944 edition with illustrations by German-American artist Fritz Eichenberg is special. Eichenberg was a German artist who emigrated to America in the 1930s; his speciality was wood engraving, a technique particularly suited to Poe’s dark dramatics. Several of the illustrations show the climax of the story.

I have already so little time to read and I already grudgingly look forward to next month when all book bloggers will start to get ecstatic about Christmas tales.
