Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Self Made Hero’s Eye Classics range of classical adaptations is expanding again, following in the footsteps of last year’s Crime & Punishment. The latest literary adaptation is Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide, condensed and illustrated by Andrzej Klimowski and Danusia Schejbal.

The original short novella was one of the most famous Victorian horror tales, delving deep into the relatively unheard of world of psychology, as Dr. Jekyll’s experimental split personality saw the rampaging Mr. Hyde take control over the doctor’s body.

Klimowski and Schejbel have taken a more traditional approach to their source material than Crime & Punishment‘s modernisation, leaving the story firmly in the spirit that Stevenson intended. You’ll find a preview of the artwork on Self Made Hero‘s website.
