Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881) was a Russian novelist, essayist, and short story writer. Born in Moscow in, he attended the Nikolayev  Military Engineering Institute and began his career as an engineer; he resigned after the success of his first novel, Poor Folk. He went on to  write short stories and serialized novels throughout the 1840s, but in 1849 was arrested on the orders of Tsar Nicholas I due to his  association with utopian Socialists. After narrowly escaping execution, he served four years with hard labor in a Siberian prison camp, and six years in compulsory military service. Dostoevsky wrote Crime and Punishment in 1866 with the help of stenographer Anna Grigoryevna Snitkina, whom he married soon afterwards 

Crime and Punishment, arguably the first modern exploration of psychological realism, is not only a gem of Russian literature but an internationally acclaimed classic. Now this masterpiece has been vividly transformed by the powerful illustrations  of renowned graphic artist Dave McKean, whose multimedia paintings are shrouded with the specters and shadows of Raskolnikov’s fever dreams. Featuring over one hundred full-page paintings, spot illustrations and illuminated letters, and housed in an elaborately die-cut and embossed slipcase, this is an heirloom edition designed as a work of art in its own right
