Folio Society – Epitaph for a Spy
Artwork by Paul Blow
The Folio Society have once again commissioned Paul Blow to create illustrations for an Eric Ambler book. Following the success of The Mask of Dimitrios, Epitaph for a Spy sees Paul create a series of illustrations to bring the story to life.
A powerful psychological thriller, the story revolves around Vadassy a man unwittingly caught up in the middle of a spy hunt with several ‘interesting’ guests staying at a hotel.
As Paul explains “I tried to recreate the intense heat and sense of claustrophobia and paranoia that runs through the text using awkward angles, confined compositions and of course a carefully considered colour palette.” We think you’ll agree he succeeded.
