    Very nice, and perfect for this illustration. The whole thing reminds me of something out of Edward Gorey’s “Amphigorey.”

    Hadn’t thought of Gorey, but yeah, I see some of that. Maybe in the half-lidded eyes of the apparition, or how it’s sketched. I’d never seen this Redon before, stumbled across it after some Redondigging one afternoon. I love it.
