Lorenzo Mattotti, from “The Raven” by Lou Reed/Lorenzo Mattotti; Fantagraphics Books, 2011.

I have a guardian angel

I keep him in my head

When I’m alone and become afraid

He saved my life instead

When I’m alone and become afraid

He saved my life instead

— from The Raven (“Guardian Angel”) by Lou Reed, illustrated by Lorenzo Mattotti: Fantagraphics Books, 2011.

 

This is from a book of the lyrics from Lou Reed’s musical based on the life and writings of Edgar Allan Poe, and illustrated by an artist whose works I’ve long admired, Lorenzo Mattotti. If you get a chance, check it out.
