Happy Birthday Edgar Allan Poe

January 19, 1809, Boston MA - October 7, 1849 Baltimore MD

Born in Boston Massachusetts, on this day in 1809, Edgar Allan Poe is one of the more recognized authors across the globe. While his death in Baltimore on October 7, 1849 still remains a mystery.

He is best known for his tales of the macabre, and poems. He also was one of the early writers of the short story, detective fiction, and crime fiction in the United States.

I have visited the Poe museum in Richmond Virginia, Philadelphia Pennsylvania and Baltimore Maryland, it is still amazing to see such artifacts, hand written letters or poems among other items in the museums.

In recognition of his birthday celebration, I am posting an image I designed to a friends poem. She wrote the poem several years ago in honor of his birthday. We collaborated on the design and had fun creating it.

Do you have any favorites of his writings? Please feel free to comment.

Happy Birthday Edgar Allan Poe!

I thought this might be of interest to the many readers on WordPress. Five hours of Edgar Allan Poe read by Vincent Price and Basil Rathbone.
I thought it to be very interesting, since I like Poe. Both readers enhanced each story they read.

I created this image last year and had thought it fit the situation.
The actual design was based on the poet Audrey Michelle, whose intelligent prose and words of wisdom have inspired me to create other works for her, specifically her poetry.

Poetry Set To Fine Art

While I was browsing through some works of art I had created over the years, I came across some images I created for a very good friend, who is a poet.

Many fond memories of works we created together and of our friendship. I thought I would share some memories with all of you. The poems and designs range from 2007 through 2015.

While Katies pen sits quiet since then, I wait with eyes open, while my creativity sleeps silently. Until then, enjoy.
