As I've been waiting to let you know more about the books on our upcoming list, it occurs to me there was one book on last seasons list that was very likely overlooked by most-
Dover did a nice reprint—softcover—of Willy Pogány's 1929 edition of "Alice in Wonderland" The endpapers are printed on the inside covers in full color, and all of the line work is there. Really inexpensive-

Hey folks.

Just a heads up to those who may be interested—a few of you have seen it already—My new book on Pogány's work is finally out from Dover. We pulled out a few stops to give it a special cover treatment, which I think really elevates the project. On a whole, we addressed a number of issues faced on previous books of this sort, and I think it is one of the best books I've put out with Dover to date.

My first exposure to many of Pogany's illustrations, especially the ones in color. I'm very happy with this book, and the H. J. Ford one is on my Amazon wish list. Thank you!

Hey-

I'm waiting to be clear to make a few new announcements- but this one happened very quietly over the summer. Lynd Ward is just a little past Golden age, and this book came out in 1934-but this is some incredible work, maybe the best illustrated version of Frankenstein until Wrightson's, and it hasn't been available for years. If you are a fan of woodcut, this guy was one of the best.

Hey Folks.

It's been quiet, I know. In about two weeks I 'll be able to give you some info on Dover's upcoming list. I do have news on one here that I imagine got by many of you.

Edmund Dulac's
Lyrics Pathetic & Humorous from A to Z

—This one caught me by surprise as well. Maybe a year ago while foraging through the Dover Archive, I came across two copies of this little alphabet book in terrific shape. It's from early in Dulac's career—the work is clean, bright, and direct. The reprint Dover did reproduces the effect of the original hardcover stamping for the cover. Hmm. It seems that this would be a good opportunity to show a few of the pieces. I'll post a selection on my blog in the next few days, so you can get a feel for what's in it. Nice stuff though, and very inexpensive in this reprint. One word of caution—for those sensitive to such things, there is one piece of text in the original that—by today's standards, is inappropriate—an ethnic slur. While it may have been permissible a century ago, it certainly wouldn't get published that way today. There was a great deal of debate about how to handle this. Dover elected to publish a statement in the front of the book, but to leave the original writing intact.

I'll post a link as soon as I can put up a few images. Back soon, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Before I get into posting info on the upcoming Dover titles- Here's three you might have missed—two I put together-
One on Henry Justice Ford,
http://www.amazon.com/Maidens-Monsters-Heroes-Fantasy-Illustrations/dp/048647290...

and also Dover's take on a Maxfield Parrish collection- this is largely his earlier and illustrative work-
http://www.amazon.com/Worlds-Enchantment-Art-Maxfield-Parrish/dp/0486473066/ref=...

the third is from Dover's Editor-in-chief, who put out this look at Golden Age artists who are expressly women- This should be released ANY DAY NOW
