Come unto these Yellow Sands Signed by Angela Carter 1st / 1st 1985
First edition and first print published by Bloodaxe in 1985. This is a fine / unread copy of the softback edition (this title was also published simultaneously in hardback). The spine is uncreased and it looks new. All pages are clean and free from previous owners marks. The author Angela Carter has signed without dedication to the title page.
People and animals are never what they seem. Men turn into werewolves in Angela Carter's classic play The Company of Wolves (now turned into a film). A beautiful girl turns out to be a vampire in Vampirella, a Transylvanian fable shadowed by the Great War. Meanwhile, Puss in Boots is out on the tiles, in a breathless entertainment. In Come Unto These Yellow Sand Carter takes you inside the eerie paintings of Richard Dadd ' to hear the beings within - the monsters produced by represssion - squeak and gibber and tell the truth'. The book includes nine reproductions of pictures by or of Richard Dadd. Scarce signed by Angela Carter.
