) is a celebrated illustrator, teacher, musician and poet whose
work has influenced many artists in the comics genre, most notably
Bill Sinkiewicz and Dave McKean. This remarkable
hardcover book is reproduced from several of Storey's illustrated
journals. Loosely based on Jean-Paul Marat from the French
Revolution and the Marquis de Sade, from the Peter
Weiss play. And, while full of richly textured images, there

binding, silver foil spine and cover, textured end papers and
color throughout. 120 pages.
