Overview

First published in 1919, Tales of Mystery and Imagination matched Edgar Allan Poe's best tales of horror and suspense with the expressive artwork of Harry Clarke. This beautifully designed volume reproduces more than thirty full-color and black-and-white illustrations that give substance to the terrifying imagery of "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Masque of the Red Death," "The Pit and the Pendulum," and twenty-five other masterpieces of the macabre. As Neil Gaiman writes in his introduction, "Clarke's art perfectly captures the perversity, madness, and delight in horror that were the hallmarks of Poe's dark genius."
