MOTTER, Dean and ASKWITH, Mark

The Prisoner: Shattered Visage

London: Titan Books, 1990

8vo, unpaginated. Original illustrated stiff paper wrappers.

First UK edition, INSCRIBED BY MARK ASKWITH TO THE ACTOR LEO McKERN: 'for leo, my favourite number two, "stone walls do not a prison make nor iron bars a cage", with admiration... Mark Askwith Toronto 1991'.

Leo McKern was the first of a rolling roster of actors to play Number 2 in the cult TV series The Prisoner, and it was his interpretation of the role to which Motter and Askwith turned when, more than twenty years after the last television episode, they collaborated to produce this four-issue graphic miniseries. Set in and around the now derelict and decaying Village, setting for the original show, the artwork of the book's front wrapper features McKern alongside Patrick McGoohan.

The title is taken from Shelley's obituary of hubris, Ozymandias. The inscription quotes Richard Lovelace's 1642 poem, To Althea, From Prison.

A wonderful association copy.
