David G. Forés is a huge fan of the Master of Macbre, Edgar Allan Poe and has already completed an illustrated anthology project based on his works. He’s turned his attention back to his hero in this project currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter, ‘The ABC of E.A. Poe‘. To promote his previous Poe project, the artist a undertook a challenge on Instagram: from the 19th of March to the 18th of April, beginning to illustrate various aspects of his writing with an alphabetical theme.
David explains on the Kickstarter page, “I dedicate a lot of hours, ink, and ravings to the Master Poe, and I this is a little excerpt of the essence of his tales and stories: the characters. Here you’ll find my interpretation of the beautiful Annabel Lee, the Masque of the Red Death and other characters I have drawn for the first time for this challenge, like Usher, Ligeia or the Gold Bug, among others.
As well as these awesome illustrations, each page in the book will contain selected quotes, extracts of the tales, trivia of Poe’s life, and peculiarities related to the characters.
