This is a new Lyra's Books limited edition slipcased quarter leather-bound and marbled hardback edition of The Picture of Dorian Gray signed by artist Gregory Manchess. Only 250 were made, this being # 236. Stunning craftmanship, as usual from Rich Tong, Lyra's Books and Ludlow Bookbinding. Dorian Gray is the subject of a full-length oil portrait by Basil Hallward, an artist infatuated by Dorian's beauty. Through Basil, Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, and he is soon enthralled by the aristocrat's hedonistic world-view: that beauty and sensual fulfilment are the only things worth pursuing in life.
Newly understanding that his beauty will fade, Dorian expresses the desire to sell his soul, to ensure that the picture, rather than he, will age and fade. The wish is granted, and Dorian pursues a libertine life of varied amoral experiences while staying young and beautiful; all the while, his portrait ages and records every sin.
