For this, the ultimate collectors edition, artist Angela Barrett has produced 15 intensely atmospheric colour plates, a set of elaborate hand-drawn borders, nine black-and-white tailpieces, and a pair of striking designs on the venous red leather binding and black cloth-covered slipcase. Bram Stokers classic, in which the instantly recognisable Count Dracula plans to sate his dreadful appetites in England only to be thwarted by an intrepid band of friends, remains an enthralling read. Exploring themes of sexuality, religion, technology and good versus evil, and told through journal entries, letters and telegrams, its cultural and literary significance is undisputed. Born in Dublin in 1847, Bram Stoker escaped the monotony of a career in the Irish Civil Service by accepting the job of manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London.Dracula was his fifth novel, and it was to have an impact and an enduring appeal its author could never have foreseen. Like the Count, Dracula is deathless and ever changing, reinvigorating the genre of horror literature and inspiring multiple film adaptations. The text of the first edition, scrupulously reproduced here, remains powerful, haunting, and deliciously ambiguous. Handpicked for her ethereal interpretations of the darker fairy tales as the perfect artist to illustrate Dracula , Angela Barrett has created remarkable work which is interwoven through this lavish limited edition. From the delicate webbing of a bats wing to the arresting portrait of the Count that forms the frontispiece, every detail invites the reader to look deeper. Each of the 750 hand-numbered copies has been signed by the artist. It has only been opened to check for printing imperfections or damage incurred by courier service.
