Edgar Allan Poe Book Illustrated by David Plunkert

Today is International Literacy Day, which seems like the perfect time to feature this amazing publication of Edgar Allan Poe: Stories and Poems, gorgeously illustrated by the great David Plunkert. This recent release is part of Rockport’s Classics Reimagined series, which pairs contemporary illustrators with works of classic literature, and David’s images really bring out the spooky side of Poe’s words in the most beautiful way possible.

      Well said, Mark. I have to hide in a dark room when I read this so it doesn’t scare the heck out of my kids.
