Greenwich Workshop artist Scott Gustafson is both author and illustrator of a new book for ages 9-12 called Eddie: The Lost Youth of Edgar Allen Poe. Published last August by Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers, the book is filled with black and white illustrations of the young life of the famous and sometimes macabre writer.
The cover illustration won the artist a place on the wall in the prestigious Society of Illustrators Original Art Show which opens on Thursday, October 27th. On Saturday, October 29, Scott will read from his book at Books of Wonder, 18 West 18th St. in NYC. Congratulations Scott!
