Rape of the Lock by Aubrey Beardsley
Book DescriptionA rare example of a literary work where text, typography, and illustration perfectly complement one another. Created during Beardsley's Romantic period, the rich, textural contrasts of his drawings are a wonderful match for the delicate fancy of Pope's poem. "These drawings ...can scarcely be matched in English literature." - R. A. Walker. Reprint of the original 1896 edition.
