Edgar Allen Poe

This week, Thinking Outside the Book visits with New Orleans painter/illustrator Michael Deas, who has illustrated books, created book jackets, and is the artist behind postage stamps of such literary luminaries as Tennessee Williams, Edgar Allan Poe, Katharine Anne Porter, Thornton Wilder, and Thomas Wolfe, as well as Marilyn Monroe and Humphrey Bogart. Deas has a particular passion for Edgar Allan Poe.
