The Art of Darkness

A Fine and Pleasant Link Dump

June 25th, 2010 by Cobwebs

Gothic Bedroom Decor – Some links and ideas for a medieval-esque goth bedroom.

Kabbalah Vodka – Russian vodka that riffs on the old belief that Jewish religious rites required the blood of infants…by including a hand-blown glass baby in the bottle. (Hat tip to Empress Pam)

Nightmares: Poems to Trouble Your Sleep – Scans from an out-of-print book of creepy poetry for children (the 70s were a weird time). There’s a sequel that’s still in print.

Funeral Gathering – I have no idea where this artwork came from, but I like it.

Mela Design – Goth and medieval wedding invitations.

Skull Book – A few nice face-paint skulls. I especially like the first one.

Three book suggestions from Kitten Herder:
The Undertaking – Meditations of a funeral director in a small town.
Bodies in Motion and at Rest – A collection of essays by the same author.
The Dead Beat – A look at obituaries and their writers.

Savage Chickens – This amused me.

p.s. – I just wanted to thank everybody who takes the time to send me links to neat stuff. I love getting suggestions from readers!
