The Porcelain Cat

On a quest from his master to retrieve a vial of basilisk blood, Nickon ends up running errands for a host of magical entities in a reissue of The Porcelain Cat (1987) by Michael Patrick Hearn. In new artwork, Leo and Diane Dillon create an eerie landscape of ethereal trees, hidden cats and faces in the moon-all trimmed in Art Nouveau-ispired gold borders. Unfortunately, at times a fuzziness overtakes the quality of the reproduction of the paintings, but overall, the Dillons' artwork is as haunting as ever. .
