Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad, Folio Society edition

Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad, Folio Society edition

Cover for the Folio Society edition of Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness". The illustration is a combination of ink drawing and monotype, designed to evoke Conrad's personification of the jungle, its oppressive atmosphere, and the death and suffering the European colonists bring to the indigenous population and suffer themselves.

The commission was awarded as a result of winning the Folio Society/House of Illustration Book Illustration Competition and was art directed by Sheri Gee.
