Without the classics of yesterday, the writing of today wouldn’t exist. The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells is one of our favorite books. We updated this classic by giving it a modern yet timeless design.
The book opens with Griffin in a snowstorm, which is the basis of our cover design. The cold and bleak winter storm outside parallels the situation the main character finds himself in. We invite you to curl up with this book and enjoy this classic tale. Leaving the lights on is optional…because it doesn’t really matter when your foe is invisible.
