Hit the read more for the rest! (Warning for lots of images, and I mean a lot. I deeply apologize to people browsing on the mobile app since read mores don’t seem to work on it. I’m so so so sorry. Unfortunately there’s no other way to put this many images in a post :/)
A gorgeous comic of Persephone’s homecoming to the Underworld.
How do you fabrics : Franz Xaver Winterhalter (20 April 1805 – 8 July 1873)
German painter and lithographer, known for his portraits of royalty in the mid-nineteenth century. He was a virtuoso in the art of conveying the texture of fabrics, furs and jewellery, to which he paid no less attention than to the face. He painted very rapidly and very fluently, designing most of his compositions directly in the canvas. His portraits are elegant, refined, lifelike, and pleasantly idealized.
What gorgeous detail.
“You really have to push yourself to imagine Edward Gorey at the beginning of his career, hanging his early works in the iconic Gotham Book Mart in the mid-1950s. But that’s exactly how he got his start, a few years after graduating from Harvard, his pictures adorning the walls of a store whose customers included Saul Bellow and Mary McCarthy.”
A street map made up from the titles of over 600 books from the history of English Literature (and a few favourites from further afield). The Map includes classics such as Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey, Bleak House, Vanity Fair and Wuthering Heights as well as 20th and 21st Century works such as The Waste Land, To the Lighthouse, Animal Farm, Slaughterhouse 5, The Catcher in the Rye, The Wasp Factory, Norwegian Wood and The Road. The Map, which is loosely based on a turn of the century London street map also includes fictional areas dedicated to the works of Thomas Hardy, Virginia Woolf, Tolkien, Harry Potter and a children’s literature district featuring such classics as The Railway Children, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Where the Wild Things Are. There’s an A-Z key at the base of the Map listing all the books featured along with the author’s name and the date first published. - See more at: http://www.wearedorothy.com/artwork/book-map-original-open-edition#sthash.KN5gOHcq.dpuf
