Illustrated Horror Books

What are some of your favorite illustrated horror books? Near the top of my list is this collection of Poe's tales illustrated by Arthur Rackham.

Re: Illustrated Horror Books

"Tales of Mystery and Imagination" by Poe, illustrated by Harry Clarke, Tudor Publishing Co., 1935 (Several other editions with Clarke illus. exist also, by same publisher and others.); "Faust" by Geothe, illus. by Harry Clarke, Grosset and Dunlap, Cameo Classics, year unknown (Entirely b&w illus., other editions exist with additional color plates, which I've not yet had the pleasure to see.); "The Golem" by Gustav Meyrink, illus. by Hugo-Steiner-Prag, Tartarus Press, 1995 (There is an inexpensive Dover paperback that has some of the illus. in the Tartarus ed.); "Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark" by Alvin Schwartz, illus. by Stephen Gammell, Harper Collins, 1981 (Often categorized as a children's book, this is actually a quite good collection of American folk tales with nice, evocative illustrations. There are 2 or 3 other books in this series, also by Schwartz and Gammell, equally well executed.).

Re: Illustrated Horror Books

I quite like this book edited by Eric Protter and illustrated by Edward Gorey. There is a small b&w title illustration and a full page b&w and red illustation for each story. Gorey's style is perfect for weird fiction.

Re: Illustrated Horror Books

I once saw a volume of Poe's Horror Tales illustrated by Harry Clarke.

It was SO expensive, but how very wonderful.

While on the subject of W.H. Pugmire I think his Sesqua Valley & Other Haunts colllection from Mythos Books has some of the most beautiful illustrations I've ever seen in any books of this genre.

Thing is, the monsters in the Sesqua Valley book all look cute. Even the werewolf is waving hello.

Re: Illustrated Horror Books

More than one of us here at TLO has mentioned this title, but Goethe's Faust as illustrated by Harry Clarke. Hopefully these pictures show up.

Re: Illustrated Horror Books

Glad to meet another Harry Clarke enthusiast. Have you seen his illustrations for Poe' Tales?
