Russell Dickerson (russelldickerson) Here are a few choices for the best of the Edgar Allan Poe adaptations, or at least those illustrated with the text.

The Raven, Gustave Dore
Tales of Mystery and Madness, Gris Grimly
Edgar Allan Poe: Selected Stories and Poems, Mark Summers

Hey, thanks Russ.

Russell Dickerson (russelldickerson) You're welcome. Now, which one of the above or which other Poe books do you like the illustrations for? :)

You mean based on the cover?

Russell Dickerson (russelldickerson) More inside illustrations and the overall package than just the cover. Though it occurs to me that I have those particular editions here on the bookshelf and not everyone else would...

I thought too that maybe others had illustrated versions that I wasn't aware of, which would be fun.

I don't think my copy of the Poe works has ANY illustrations.

Russell Dickerson (russelldickerson) Then you should definitely keep an eye out for the above works. They are all three very different takes on Poe, and have a nice feel to them (for different reasons).
