Dracula

By Bram Stoker 

Art by James Pyman 

496 pages 
ISBN: 9780954502577 

Four Corners Familiars #2 
Designed by John Morgan 

This most famous of vampire stories is revived through a series of beautiful pencil drawings by illustrator James Pyman. For this new edition of Dracula, designer John Morgan worked in collaboration with the artist, who sketched a line or phase from each of the book’s 27 chapters. 
The second book in the Four Corners Familiars series is made up of a series of diaries, letters and newspaper cuttings, typeset by Morgan with a different typeface for each character, the fonts based on those in use at the time of the book's original publication. The yellow clothbound cover echoes that of the first UK edition. 

The typefaces used in this edition are: 

LTC Remington Typewriter Pro Italic, for Mina Harker’s journal 
Bulmer (justified), for Jonathan Harker’s journal 
Bulmer Italic (ranged left), for Dr Seward 
Akzidenz Grotesk, for Dr Van Helsing (Akzidenz Grotesk is the forefather of Helvetica and was released one year before Dracula was first published) 
Goudy Sans Italic, for Lucy Westenra’s letters 
Orator Standard, for telegrams (this typeface is matched exactly to a telegram of that period) 
Century Expanded, for newspaper extracts 
Greenwood, for Sister Agatha
