Weird Wednesday

OK, this is the last time I'm going to do this, I promise, but I just love these two illustrators so much, I couldn't resist. The Poe tale this time, of course, is The Premature Burial. Harry Clarke's version (above) is as strikingly, creepily gothic as always but Rackham's more abstract take on the subject (top) is more imaginative and perhaps even more striking - and would look good on a T-shirt, too.
