Steven Stroud
The Sound and the Fury - April Eighth, 1928

1980

$650

About

This pen & ink on artist's paper is broken into two segments (as were all of the illustrations created for this publication) and were printed across two pages with the empty space in between being used to identify a new date/part in the story, as seen in the example below. The purple ink, splattered intentionally with black ink, shows a group packed into a small room as a man at the front addresses the crowd. This illustration appears on pages 320-321 of The Sound and the Fury. It marks the beginning of Part IV "April Eighth, 1928". This illustration on artist's paper has been loosely adhered to a foam core backing. A mat and piece of black paper are loosely attached over the top. This is unsigned by the artist. From its founding in 1973 until its closing in 2000 The Franklin Library produced public domain classic books. They released books to subscribers in themed series such as Greatest Books of the Twentieth Century. Often released in parallel series including leather bound and a non-leather bound (leatherette), the books were handsomely bound and included illustrations from contemporary illustrators. American artist and illustrator Steven H. Stroud (b. 1947) was specially commissioned to create a series of interior illustrations for The Franklin Library's 1980 publication of the 1929 novel The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner. Matted dimensions: 20" x 27" Image dimensions: 12.75" x 12"
