About this Item: Penguin London. An enduring classic, and one that richly deserves the very special treatment of this gorgeous leather bound special limited edition designer classic from Penguin.
Any collector will be delighted with this permanent edition, designed for a long life, and a really aesthetic one too. Penguin asked the brilliant leather designer, Bill Amberg, to design a six book set. Amberg chose vegetable tanned buffalo skin from 'fallen animals' - which means they died from natural causes. The skins were processed in a totally ecological way, where the water is recycled after filtering through reed beds. The resultant leather is tough and aesthetic, and, like all great leather bindings, can only improve with handling.
Amberg has used Yapp binding, where the leather overlaps the exposed edges of the text block. Such bindings are limp, with rounded corners, so the leather edges protect the text block as the! The leather edges are beautifully sewn. Additionally, there is a very handsome tethered bookmark in the same material which bears the book's title. At the base of the leather spine is a blind embossed Penguin logo. This is a truly delightful production, and comes with a special Penguin tissue wrapping inside a blond card box.

Pages are mostly clean overall, with moderate tanning throughout. Nonetheless, noir crime thrillers and melodramas are inhabited by quite a collection of artist characters. Films such as Bluebeard Edgar G. The following pages make up a museum catalogue comprising entries on about a hundred painted portraits that feature in noir thrillers, gothic melodramas, and supernatural ghost stories of the s and the s.
As is the case in every museum, the paintings are grouped in different rooms. This museum consists of six galleries. Some of them are dedicated to portraits of specific character types such as I dying characters, II patriarchs, III matriarchs and female ancestors, and IV ghost-like figures. The largest gallery V shows fatal portraits of desirable women. Self-evidently, as in all museums, the organization of the galleries is to a certain extent arbitrary; several works could be put on display in another room.
However, in each of the introductions to the galleries, we explain our choices and make explicit some of the interrelations between the exhibits. In short, it tells the story of the portrait before it became part of this museum collection.

As in every common art gallery, this museum holds famous masterpieces as well as lesser-known or less interesting works. This is reflected in the varying size of the catalogue entries. Longer entries, such as those dealing with the portraits in Laura Otto Preminger, , Scarlet Street Fritz Lang, , or Vertigo Alfred Hitchcock, , for instance, deal with the highlights of this museum, which are usually paintings that can be considered as principal characters in the films in which they feature.
In addition, over the years, these paintings have also attracted much critical and scholarly attention, often becoming important topics in film theory. In , Albert Lewin, a director with highbrow affectations, adapted the novel for the screen for MGM. The story about a painting that ages instead of its sitter prefigures the endless variations on the portrait as a harbinger of death. When the protagonist Ronald Colman is faced with his portrait, he is not only confronted with his downfall but also with his mortality.
