In his Nimbus clouds series, Berndnaut Smilde creates actual clouds, typically inside empty gallery spaces, and then photographs the results. The process is scientific, as he carefully regulates the temperature and humidity of a space to create ideal conditions for a cloud. After misting an area, he then sprays a short burst of fog to create a fluffy, albeit brief, cloud.
Illustrations of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein”
I felt so terribly in love with this illustrations, they render the novel beautifully. When I’m grown up I want to be as good as him. :)
My breath, she is taken away. Whoa, dude.
Best Frankenstein illustrations ever.
I got the latest issue of W magazine in the mail today, and this editorial (photographed by legendary fashion photographer, Steven Meisel) immediately caught my eye:
Look familiar? Maybe this will jog your memory…
No mistake - that fashion spread was clearly inspired by the character select screen in Tale of Tales’ 2009 adventure/horror game, The Path. Guess they figured nobody who reads W would play video games… right?? It’s a pretty awesome spread, though.
Oh, she’s lovely. Someday one of Madame Talbot’s fetal skull mourning dolls will be mine.

This is a real human fetal skull mourning doll.
It is not worth telling, this story of mine - at least, not worth writing. - This is how Sheridan LeFanu starts “An Account of Some Strange Disturbances in Aungier Street”, and what better way to make one want to read a story?
A bit further on, same paragraph: Pen, ink, and paper are cold vehicles for the marvellous, and a ‘reader’ decidedly a more critical animal than a ‘listener’.
❤ Sheridan Le Fanu.
