Corey Brickley was commissioned by The Folio Society to illustrate the binding and 6 internal illustrations for ‘The Folio Book of Horror Stories’, released as part of their Autumn 2018 collection.
Corey’s brooding, atmospheric style with its particular noir nuances made him the perfect choice to illustrate the stories collected within this anthology, ranging from classic to contemporary. Corey had to navigate the balance between depicting physical embodiments of supernatural phenomena with the more suggestive elements of horror that are intangible, dwelling in the psyche. The result is this series of beautiful expressive images that transport the reader into terrifying fictional worlds.
