Coming in October 2013 from my fine publisher Tin House Books, a new edition of Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness with 100 full color illustrations by me. Above is the final cover, and I couldn’t be more pleased. It captures everything I was trying to convey with my illustrations, and is just a brilliant piece of work. Many many thanks to Diane Chonette at Tin House for putting this together, and to Tin House in general for making this dream a reality.
GIMME. Love Matt Kish’s work, so excited about this.
Most of you are familiar by now (or should be anyway) with artist Matt Kish’s stunning (and massive) Moby Dick in Pictures: One Drawing for Every Page. We’re thrilled to announce that his next undertaking will be an illustrated edition of Joseph Conrad’s masterpiece, Heart of Darkness. This project–unlike his Moby Dick–will include the the full text alongside 100 of his illustrations. (via Announcing: Matt Kish’s Illustrated Heart of Darkness | Tin House)
OMG OMG OMG AWESOME.
