Art & Words will be an ongoing, occasional series of elegantly designed books meant to draw the reader in, and give them free rein to stretch their imaginations. Each book will take a classic work of literature – some fantastical, some more mundane – and update it with new, glorious hand-drawn art by Brigid Ashwood.
Illustrations spun from the text, along with images that correspond to the author’s life and times, will enhance the redesigned original novel, letting readers experience it on a whole new level. And, if the text and images move you, there will be space in the back of the book to write notes, sketch, muse, or jot inspiration for your own next creation.
The first book in the Art & Words series will be an illustrated edition of The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe. More titles will follow!
We’re over the moon to be working with such a talented artist on such a great conceptual series, and we can’t wait to bring you the first books!
