Brutal fables, magic and mystery abound in this gorgeous work.

Late Italian artist Toppi’s ornate and beautiful illustrations and design tell tales inspired by 1001 Arabian Nights. His use of contrasting white and black space as well as the texture created through cross-hatching makes for amazing images many of which I would love to frame. If you liked P. Craig Russell’s black & white illustrations for Sandman #50 (especially in “Ramadan”) or Simone Bianchi’s art for Astonishing X-Men or Wolverine: Evolution—check this out.
