Another Owl and Pussycat - Illustrated by Stephane Jorisch

Page spread from The Owl and The Pussycat, illustrated by Stephane Jorisch

I was slightly sad for myself when I discovered this beautifully whimsical treatment of The Owl and The Pussycat, illustrated by Stephane Jorisch, for the Visions in Poetry series (Kids Can Press).

The Visions in Poetry series helps to give classic poetry new life, as each poem is reinterpreted by a contemporary artist.

Jorisch has also illustrated the weird and wonderful, Jabberwocky (Lewis Carroll, 1872) for the same series. And Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven (1845) gets a scrumptiously, dark and twisted treatment from Ryan Price. Price shows he is a master of drypoint with this work. Drypoint is very close to my heart (must explain more in future posts).
