A national favorite in the UK, Alfred Noyes' poem, "The Highwayman" was last published as an illustrated edition in 1981. A successful Kickstarter allowed Brianna Reagan to self-publish her original illustrations as a hard cover book, with gold foil detail on the cover and a fully illustrated wrap around dust jacket.
Her artistic style complements the vivid imagery of the poem, and she illustrated this story with great detail and artistic care. If you were one of the 151 people to grab a copy, you'll find intriguing compositions and darkly beautiful artwork within the pages. All copies have sold, though the artist is interested in finding a publisher for a second edition.
Brianna Reagan also illustrations a collaborative Graphic Novel, The Clockwork Queen of Oz, and will eventually illustrate another personal project, The Beauty in the Deep, written by her older brother.
