A young man of extraordinary personal beauty
Words by Oscar Wilde, Art by Gareth Jones
Oscar Wilde's classic book - his only novel - follows the fortunes of a young man of leisure in fin-de-siècle London after he makes a deal with the devil: that he will always stay young, while his portrait grows old in his place. For this new edition of the book, artist Gareth Jones re-imagines the story as a costume drama set in 1970s Paris, in a large format edition that returns the book to its origins in a magazine.
The typefaces used in this edition are: Cover and headers: ITC Benguiat Preface: Times New Roman Italic Body text: Garamond
