The King in Yellow
Most know the King in Yellow from Lovecraft’s stories and the Cthulhu mythos in general, but it predates his stories by quite some time. The King in Yellow is a forbidden play which causes those who read it to go mad, and comes from a collection of stories by the same name written by Robert Chambers.
Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Limited Giclee Art Print by Francesco Francavilla
Second (of two) tribute to one of my current favorite shows.
The print measures 13x19” and is limited to 146 copies.
Why 146? Cause it’s the sum of 1995 and 2012 (19+95+20+12). You know those years, don’t you? ;)
