This is a beautiful, over-sized book full of artwork related to the novel, the author, and the people who influenced Wilde and the book.

The footnotes are extensive- so extensive that I think I may have taken on too much here. The first three paragraphs of the actual novel have 11 foot notes, and fill more pages than the three original paragraphs. So I think this is going back to the library, and maybe I'll read "Dorian Gray" on its own some day.
