The Art of Darkness

Egad! It’s Another Week of Link Dumps: Day 2

December 9th, 2014 by Cobwebs

Bronze Age – This vareigated yarn by Zen Yarn Garden is the very essence of Halloween. (via Burning Prairie)

Love Manor’s Flickr Photostream – All kinds of fantastic ideas for spooky decorating and entertaining. In particular check out their album of potion labels and other printables.

“Jaws” Necklace – Clever necklace design which mimics the iconic movie poster.

My dead girlfriend keeps messaging me on Facebook – A great bit of realistic horror fiction from Reddit’s NoSleep.

Sick Roses – Interesting interview with Richard Barnett, who’s written a book on disease and the art of medical illustration.

Dark Literary Classics Calendar – Neat calendar featuring works like Macbeth and “The Yellow Wallpaper.”

Christmas Comes Early to Pottermore – J.K. Rowling has announced that she’ll release 12 Harry Potter stories this month, beginning on Friday.

Corporate Spirit – Peculiar stock photography, many with captions.

Saint Gomez and Morticia Addams – This set of prayer candles featuring “the patron saints of Eternal Love” almost makes me want to convert. The seller also has Saint Elvira, Saint Jareth, and a lot of other great designs.

Animated Christmas Cards by Terry Gilliam – These Pythonesque cards are awesome.

    My fella gave me the Dark Literary Classics last week. I like the artwork but no _Dracula_?!? Really?!?

    Pottermore is one of the great marriages of fandom and copyright control. Where most rights holders (often publishers rather than authors) seek and destroy fanfic, Rowling has managed to engage her fans in a way that they enjoy, rewarding her with successful maintenance of control of the rights. What I’m saying is I can’t find any pirated versions of the stuff that’s available on Pottermore and that’s impressive.
