Announcing: Matt Kish’s Illustrated Heart of Darkness
Most of you are familiar by now (or should be anyway) with artist Matt Kish’s stunning (and massive) Moby Dick in Pictures: One Drawing for Every Page. We’re thrilled to announce that his next undertaking will be an illustrated edition of Joseph Conrad’s masterpiece, Heart of Darkness. This project–unlike his Moby Dick–will include the the full text alongside 100 of his illustrations.
Matt discusses the new book here:
I’m simultaneously excited and frightened. Heart of Darkness, along with Melville’s Moby-Dick, David Lindsay’s A Voyage to Arcturus and Mervyn Peake’s Titus Groan, is one of the books that has fundamentally shaped my thinking. Exploring it visually like this, journeying through it line by line, page by page, image by image will be extremely intense. Heart of Darkness is such a complex, multi-layered, psychological narrative that the prospect of illustrating it is immensely challenging. And yet I am excited to start, and to share these pieces.
