The 1800’s Romanticism has given us many great works of literature, but more than merely this, it helped to instill a deep and abiding appreciation of the union of scientific principles and the supernatural. Abigail Larson compellingly captures this period in her portraits of strong women approaching, encountering, and perhaps even embracing the great unknown.

Slender, somber women populate Ms Larson’s illustrated world, but you may also catch fleeting glimpses of charming devils and other literary figures among her Victorian mansions and overgrown graveyards. Who can say what eldritch rites and forgotten gods these capable ladies will encounter in their adventures, but each will certainly be a tale worth the telling.
