The Picture of Dorian Gray
Oscar Wilde's classic book – his only novel – follows the fortunes of a young man of leisure in fin-de-siecle London after he makes a deal with the devil: that he shall always stay young, while his portrait grows old in his place. Artist Gareth Jones re-imagines the story as a costume drama set in 1970s Paris, in a large format edition that returns the book to its origins in a magazine.
