London: Folio Society
‘Beyond the pit stood the little wedge of people with the white flag at its apex, arrested by these phenomena, a little knot of small vertical black shapes upon the black ground.’ This portion of Wells’ classic visitation text was chosen by the Award winning artist Grahame Baker-Smith to form this frontispiece to this Folio Society edition of 2004. The image stands alone, and like many modern publications, there is a separate ‘Illustrations’ list that indicates where the text occurs, in this instance, page 25.
