Here is what Robert Sammelin had to say about the poster :
When asked to approach a classic genre novel, I immediately knew I wanted to illustrate Dracula. I’ve always been fascinated by the themes of vampirism; from the surface level attributes of the prince of darkness I saw as a child to the multi layered complexity of love, fear, sex and violence I see now.With this poster I wanted to explore this complexity and highlight the erotic undertones of the book that I feel are central to the themes within it. By rendering Dracula himself close to invisible, I let his fleeting presence around Mina symbolise what I see as the underlying horror of the story – control; the fear of losing control over one’s self, a fear of extacy, of indulgence and ultimately men’s fear of a female sexuality beyond their control.
