    The leather binding is very nicely done and the Harry Clarke ill

    The leather binding is very nicely done and the Harry Clarke illustrations are fabulous. Unfortunately the cover artwork is not by Clark and does not really match his style and quality. The paper and printing quality are very nice, but the number of pages given in the description is wrong...this is not a 480 page omnibus of Poe's work, but only those tales that were originally published under the "Tales of Mystery" title. Overall, I love this book and highly recommend it, especially for the beautiful Harry Clark illustrations.

    Love this beautiful book! My son, 14, was almost as excited for this book as he was his video games at Christmas! Awesome!
