Edited and introduced by David A Berona, this volume presents 110 plates reproducing the work of the Decadent artist Hans Henning Voigt (1887-1969), known simply as 'Alastair'. It brings together illustrations from books including The Sphinx (1920) by Oscar Wilde, Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher (1928) and Laclos' Les Liaisons Dangereuses (1929) as well as Alastair's own published collections. 'His drawings - more cruel than Beardsley's - could illustrate a fashion magazine in Hell' (Philippe Jullian).
