    THE MARAT / SADE JOURNALS by BARRON STOREY (1993).

    Storey (1940- ) 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 is no clear narrative. Barron Storey himself describes the contents as "the personal journals of the aging artist...

    The possibility that some value may be found in the work and that the value will outweigh the overtly personal content [is the] rationale." Beautiful leatherette binding, silver foil spine and cover, textured end papers and color throughout. 120 pages.

    Hardbound. Published by Tundra, at the end of its existence, in a very limited edition. Kevin Eastman spared no cost. First and only printing. Virtually impossible to find. . Condition: the small handfull of copies we have left in stock have some "slight" imperfections to the cover. There are some small light scratches and scuffs and would be considered "near mint" but not completely perfect.
