Dear Shane,

I read your message asking for a large photograph of E A Poe for your school project. There is a particularly good photograph of Poe that I found and used for some work that I did a a couple of years ago on the cover of the following book:

- Symons, Julian, "The Tell-Tale Heart: The Life and Works of Edgar Allan Poe" (London: Faber and Faber Ltd., 1978).

The copy that I consulted was the hardback edition which had a red cover and incorporated Poe's photograph in large on the front. I especially liked it because it depicted him well, and captured the haunted look in his eyes that revealed his troubled mind. I hope that you will follow up this reply and consider choosing this picture. Good luck with your project, and happy hunting for Poe's face!!

In all sincerity, and with kindest regards:

Thank you so much Scott for the help. But I managed to find a couple of other pictures of him on the net last night so I could turn the project in TODAY. The teacher like the work i had done. But I wish i had a large one. But I could not figure out how to make the picture bigger. WIthout a scanner. Thanks for your help and input. Shane Hanson
