A Horror Classic Illustrated
by Georges Bess
Bram Stoker created the world-renowned vampire DRACULA in his 1897 novel of the same name. Widely credited with creating the vampire genre (although not single-handedly), this classic has withstood the test of time to become one of the most seminal works of modern horror.
This graphic novel adaptation of Bram Stoker’s complete original novel by celebrated illustrator GEORGES BESS includes an epilogue adapting Stoker’s short story “Dracula’s Guest” (believed to be the original novel’s deleted first chapter before later revived for publication two years after the author’s passing).
Filled with page after page of stunning pen-and-ink drawings, readers will find themselves lost in each of these classic scenarios, content to soak in every detail before entering the next page. Reproducing Georges’s unprocessed illustration boards on uncoated woodfree paper, these artist-edition books will capture the tactile details of his work as if holding the originals.
In preserving this linework, we also strive to reproduce each page as close to the original tones as possible, allowing the reader to see the brush strokes and ink lines as if drawn into their copy of the book itself. Variations in ink density in large fills and thick lines bring the reader into the work as if holding George’s original boards.
