Of course I had to get myself a treat.. After some heavy drooling over every single poster, I finally managed to pick out a few. A few for myself and a few for my love. Some for the staircase, some for the saloon in the barn. Smart shopping move, to justify me buying 8 new lovelies for our semi empty, longing walls. Eeeerrr Right..?
Impatently waiting for my new treasures to arrive. *Rolling thumbs*
Remember Me.. The first poster to catch my eyes.
Quote from the artist herself, Madame Talbot: "During the Victorian era, cemeteries were considered the place to be and the place to be seen. Some of the most interesting graveyards and cemeteries are located in England, Bunhill (probably from the words "Bone Hill"), Highgate and must we not forget the most poetic and beautiful of all, Père-Lachaise cemetery, which is located in romantic Paris, France.
At the bottom of this tombstone in the poster is an old saying that had once been described in stone:"
"Remember me as you pass by
As you are now so once was I -
As I am now so you will be
Prepare for death and follow me"
*Sigh* Ooooh wonderful, wonderful.. Do I have to say more? Head over to Madame Talbot's dark corner of the world wide web, to see more of her lovely art! Oh, and did I mention.. She also makes mourning dolls and sell other horrifick goodies. No reason to wait.
Ps: Do also check out her blog!
