|The first, and latest Tartarus hardbacks
On a weekly basis we receive submissions from artists, but it is very, very rare that their work is appropriate to the books we publish. And then, at the end of 2009, we came across the artwork of Stephen Clark. He had been illustrating posters for a series of alternative music gigs in Leeds and his work was so beautiful and strange that we got in contact with him and he provided the artwork for Strange Tales III, then the paperback edition of Machen’s N. We also commissioned him to provide the powerful image for Sourdough by Angela Slatter. Stephen’s work is now adorning our series of reprints by Robert Aickman.
