Edgar Allan Poe: an inspired gift

Oh today I'm so happy I could die! :)
I've just received this Edgar Allan Poe inspired journal which I had ordered from Amazon.com and it's just wonderful!! Even more beautiful then I expected.

As you can see from the pictures (sorry for the bad quality) it's all purple and has Poe's signature and part of his "Tamerlane" poem in handwritten in gold on the cover.




Also inside there's a very nice description of Poe:

"Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) is widely considered the darkest and most gothic of American writers, a pioneer who explored and settled entirely new literary landscapes including the short story and science fiction, as well as detective story. His personal life was characterised by tumult and passion.
He was orphaned at young age and his fortune plunged and soared over the course of his career. The cause of his death remains a mystery but his reputation continues to grow. His dark romanticism and fascination with the themes of violence and death and the macabre have combined with his fearless innovation as a writer and critic to make him one of the most revered prose and poetry writers in the world

The cover of the journal portrays a fragment from the manuscript of his first book "Tamerlane and other poems"

Now I should buy a proper pen to write in it! A fountain pen with a black feather could fit. Don't you think?
