The Nose and The Overcoat are part of Four Corners Familiars, a series of artists' responses to classic novels and short stories that provides a fresh look at the tradition of the illustrated novel, with each artist choosing a text to be reprinted in full as part of a newly created work. The Nose is a satirical short story with an unlikely protagonist. Taking on a life of its own, the nose of a St. Petersburg official leaves its rightful place to cause havoc in the city. This edition includes photographs by artist Rick Buckley documenting a Gogol-inspired street intervention where he fixed plaster noses on to buildings all over London.
