The Hound of Baskervilles
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Photographs by Michael Kenna.
San Francisco: Arion Press, 1985. Octavo. Charcoal cloth with paw print graphics in a matching cloth slipcase with eerie printed pastedowns covering both sides, additional pastedown with title on the spine.

The sixteenth book of the legendary Arion Press, a genius pairing of Kenna's desolate, evocative photos and the classic Sherlock Holmes tale of horror and intrigue in the British countryside.
“The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes.”
