This most famous of vampire stories is revived through a series of beautiful pencil drawings by illustrator James Pyman. For this new edition of Dracula, designer John Morgan worked in collaboration with the artist, who sketched a line or phase from each of the book’s 27 chapters.

This second book in our Familiars series is made up of a series of diaries, letters and newspaper cuttings, has been typeset by Morgan with a different typeface for each character, the fonts based on those in use at the time of the book's original publication. 

Four Corners Books is an independent publishing house, founded in 2007 by Elinor Jansz and Richard Embray. For their Familiars series, Four Corners commission artists to produce new illustrated editions of classic novels. By 'smuggling' contemporary art into the Classics sections of bookshops, Jansz and Emray hope that art can be brought to new audiences at affordable prices. Four Corners collaborate with artists working in different media and at different stages of their careers. Sometimes an artist's approach to their commissioned text is respectful, even celebratory, and sometimes it is subversive. In each case, designer John Morgan works closely with the artist to ensure that their approach to the text is reflected in the format and layout of the book.

Words by Bram Stoker. Illustrated by James Pyman.
