Harry Clarke - Tales of mistery and imagination illustrations



A tell-tale heart
 
Poe's stories have a unique haunting character, and with the aid of these pictures imagination will never fail to convey the description behind the words and the stories will stay thus forever imprinted in the mind. When Poe uses the word unnerve in his stories you can be sure it is not an understatement. He creates an atmosphere with  this word, a state of mind  felt through all bodily pores. Harry Clarke has followed this thread to a tooth in his drawings. One gets nervous only by looking at them.

  2. I haven't seen his illustrations for Faust till now. Thank you for sharing this with me. I admire the attention he pays to costume design and human moods, they are so intricated, whether they are in black or white or coloured.
