    Bernie Wrightson - The Edgar Allan Poe Portfolio (Christopher Enterprises, 1976). Who better to take up the task of illustrating the twisted and bizarre works of Edgar Allan Poe than that modern master of the macabre, the inimitable Bernie Wrightson. From the artist who brought you Swamp Thing, Creepshow, and a host of other ghoulish goodies comes this paralysis-inducing portfolio: eight scenes representing some of the Master's most terror-filled tales. You'll thrill to see the killer ape from Murders in the Rue Morgue, and your pulse will quicken as you gaze upon the climactic scene from A Cask of Amontillado. Can you bear to gaze upon the horrific sight of The Premature Burial or The Masque of the Red Death? We warn you, gentle reader, these images, rendered in all their painterly beauty, will forever sear themselves into your memory, and... well, we warned you. Eight full-color plates, measuring approximately 12" x 16" each, in an illustrated envelope, this portfolio is numbered 740 out of 2,000 and is signed by the artist. An exceptional piece, in Excellent condition.
