Last night, I dreamt I went to Manderley again…

I’m rereading Rebecca, the classic by Daphne du Maurier, and I find myself haunted by the story. Thought I’d share a tribute piece of typographic artwork I put together in grad school:

When I was younger, I thought of the book as a romance. Now, I think of it almost as a horror story. The naive qualities of the narrator and the unfolding layers of mystery are simultaneously compelling and gutwrenching.

As a reader, I’m transfixed by the imagery of the house and the slightly different, yet equally strong grasp it has on all of the characters.

Cheers (or shivers), Amy
