Fyodor Dostoevsky's 1866 novel Crime and Punishment, arguably the first modern exploration of psychological realism, is not only a gem of Russian literature but an internationally renowned classic. Now this masterpiece has been vividly transformed by the powerful illustrations of renowned graphic artist Dave McKean, whose multimedia paintings are shrouded with the specters and shadows of Raskolnikov's fever dreams. Featuring over one hundred full-page paintings, spot illustrations and illuminated letters, and housed in an elaborately die-cut and embossed slipcase, this is an heirloom edition designed as a work of art in its own right. Featuring an introduction by Lonny Harrison. 9x12", 346 pages.
