Bringing Matheson’s World To Life
♦ The Folio Society published a beautiful illustrated edition of Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend and here is that illustrator, the rather talented Dave McKean, talking about creating these wonderful images earlier this year…
I Am Legend, Richard Matheson’s brutal tale of survival and vampires, arrives in a spectacular Folio edition – illustrated by artist Dave McKean and introduced by a modern master of horror, Joe Hill. Award-winning illustrator and comics legend Dave McKean has created a number of searing colour images that capture the washed-out desperation of Matheson’s post-apocalyptic world, with splashes of vibrant red hinting at the violence happening just off page.
The special die-cut slipcase offers frightening glimpses of the binding, and each new novel section features more of McKean’s stunning black and white artwork.
This is also available as an exclusive limited edition – only 295 copies, bound in leather and with a print signed by the artist. The Folio Society produces beautifully crafted collector’s editions of the world’s greatest books, each with unique illustrations or specially researched photographs throughout.
