I was honored to create a cover for Penguin’s iconic Classics series. Arthur Machen’s strange and sexually charged narrative, The White People provided the name and visual inspiration for this new collection of work. In the title story, a young girl’s involvement with the occult culminates in a tense and otherworldly revelation. Filled with horror, sex and the fantastic, Machen’s supernatural tales have influenced the likes of Guillermo Del Toro, Stephen King and H.P. Lovecraft.
