Book Description

Wordsworth Classics covers a huge list of beloved works of literature in English
and translations. This growing series is rigorously updated, with scholarly
introductions and notes added to new titles.



The illustrations for this series were created by Scott McKowen, who, with his
wife Christina Poddubiuk, operates Punch & Judy Inc., a company specializing in
design and illustration for theater and performing arts. Their projects often
involve research into the visual aspects of historical settings and characters.
Christina is a theater set and costume designer and contributed advice on the
period clothing for the illustrations.



Scott created these drawings in scratchboard - an engraving medium which evokes
the look of popular art from the period of these stories. Scratchboard is an
illustration board with a specifically prepared surface of hard white chalk. A
thin layer of black ink is rolled over the surface, and lines are drawn by hand
with a sharp knife by scraping through the ink layer to expose the white surface
underneath. The finished drawings are then scanned and the color is added
digitally.



Two of Jack London’s best-loved masterpieces, in their entirety. Call of the
Wild tells a compelling tale of adventure during the Yukon Gold Rush, and fully
captures the unquenchable spirit of Buck, a kidnapped dog trying to survive in
the harshest of environments. Also set in Alaska, the powerful White Fang
follows the often savage life of the magnificent title character, a mix of wolf
and dog.
