Phantasmagory: A Collection of Deliciously Dark Nursery Rhymes And Macbre Poems and L'Alphabet Terrible, A Gallery of Ghoulish
Phantasmagory is indeed a collection of deliciously dark nursery rhymes and macabre poetry. The contents seem to be drawn from a wicked Victorian vein. This delightful collection features beautiful Victorian wood engravings and Victorian art, as well as Gothic inspired prose. The author, A. M. Stephens, has restored works from her collection of Victorian wood engravings and advertising art, and has lovingly cobbled them together into creepy collages, each one specifically designed for a particular poem. The result is Phantasmagory, a cache of fun and darkly fascinating prose and vintage art that borders on the dark side. Please enjoy.
