American Shorts, A Limited-Edition Series of Illustrated Short Stories

Portland-based publisher Scout Books has released their inaugural limited-edition literary series titled American Shorts from their Good Ink division, which are handheld beautifully illustrated American short story books. A subscription is available to receive all ten titles.

The ten-part series mines 100 years of the U.S.A.’s literary canon of immortal short stories, from the horrific (“The Fall of the House of Usher”) to the heartwarming (“The Gift of the Magi”), with many stops along the way. Each book is uniquely illustrated by one of today’s best illustrators (including François Vigneault, Bwana Spoons, Vanessa Davis, Gemma Correll, Meg Hunt, Tom Neely, and Kate Bingaman-Burt), breathing new life into these classic stories!
