Book cover of mysteries of harris burdick In 1984, Chris Van Allsburg created a picture book titled The Mysteries of Harris Burdick. The book consisted of 14 beautiful and fantastical black-and-white illustrations, each accompanied by a title and very short caption. The concept behind the book is that Van Allsburg found these illustrations at the home of a former children’s book publisher who had been given them by a man named Harris Burdick, who then disappeared never to be heard from again.
