Vincent Mallié Wins Doylean Honor for A Study in Scarlet

A Study in Scarlet Magnetic Press edition

Magnetic Press not only puts out graphic novels, they also release art books, and one of them was right up my alley. I’ve mentioned their edition of A Study in Scarlet before, when it was on sale last Thanksgiving.

However, I was recently reminded that I was remiss in congratulating the artist, Vincent Mallié, on receiving a Doylean Honor this past January.

The honors are awarded yearly by the ACD Society, “a community dedicated to studying and enjoying the works of Arthur Conan Doyle”. Mallié won an award for excellence in the “Visual Arts” category for his illustrations in this book. (Disclaimer: I was on the judging committee.)

Note that it’s not a graphic novel. It’s a reprint of the first Sherlock Holmes novel written by Arthur Conan Doyle with illustrations by Mallié. And it’s lovely.
