Cooooooooooool…….. Six artistic takes on Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian, found at Flavorwire. (Thanks S) Link to the project here.
Drawing comparisons to both Dante’s Inferno and Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian is a work of genuine madness, and one of the most violent books in contemporary literature. Zak Smith (who previously illustrated each page of Gravity’s Rainbow), and five other artists (Sean McCarthy, John Mejias, Craig Taylor, Shawn Cheng, and Matt Wiegle) have taken on the daunting task of illustrating every page of the grizzly tale. The styles range from hauntingly vivid to extremely abstract, each image complemented with a quote from the source material that served as its inspiration.
