Bronte, Emily - Wuthering Heights - ( Item 124163 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2014. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. Introduced by Patti Smith. Wuthering Heights defies easy classification and stands alone as a uniquely powerful novel that transcends genres. Patti Smith, the singer-songwriter and poet, has written a new, lyrical introduction to this edition, in which she sums up Emily Brontë’s complex gifts. Bound in buckram, printed and blocked with a design by Rovina Cai. Set in Adobe Caslon. 352 pages; frontispiece and 8 colour illustrations. 9½" x 6¼". Lockwood is an unwanted guest, forced by a snowstorm to pass the night at the lonely and inhospitable house of Wuthering Heights. A child’s ghost pleads at the window to be let in; a waif who has wandered the moor for 20 years. Lockwood’s screams bring the fierce and brooding master of the house, Heathcliff, who is at first angry, and then, startlingly, sobs and begs for the ghost to return. Rovina Cai is an Australian illustrator currently based in the United States. She studied illustration in the MFA Illustration as Visual Essay programme at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Her work is a combination of graphite drawing and digital colouring, and she delights in creating poetic images that evoke a sense of intrigue and mystery. Rovina’s work has been featured in publications such as Spectrum Fantastic Art, American Illustration and Communication Arts.
