In 1919, readers were treated to Irish artist Harry Clarke’s spectacular illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe’s rich and brimful of wonder Tales of Mystery and Imagination. Clarke (889 – 1931) was expert is designing stained glass windows. Hold any of these excellent illustrations to the light as one might a lantern and let them cast a long shadow, the wired figures released from their frightening traps like anathematized genies from the bottle.
