Merry meet all,
Today I bought an unusual book. If you are an Edgar Allan Poe fan like me, then this won’t seem weird. The book is titled The Illustrated Edgar Allan Poe Unabridged pop-up book. I am an Edgar Allan Poe fan. I own a beautiful leather bound book of all of his work and a tribute cd from Nox Arcana about him.
I love his macabre stories that never fail to send a spin down my spine. Oh the horror of rats, locked up corpses, and melancholic ghosts. Poe wrote with a unique style and voice. The book includes four of his famous spine-chilling tales- The Fall of the House of Usher, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Pit and the Pendulum, and the The Cask of Amontillado. Each tale has a pop-up picture. There are six pop-ups in all. The book is bound in smooth hardcover and beautifully illustrated.
I have not finished reading the book yet. Of course, buying the book dooms me to eat nothing but ramen noodles for a whole month but hey, it’s worth it. How often do you find a pop-up book of Edgar Allan Poe tales? Right, not often.
I shall post more here when I have read the entire book. But that won’t take long. I love his stories and poems.
There came a rapping at my chamber door…
No, never mind, that’s my guinea pig not a gothy raven attempting to spout sonnets but failing miserably..
