'Prophet!' said I, 'thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil! - Whether tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore, Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted - On this home by horror haunted - tell me truly, I implore - Is there - is there balm in Gilead? - tell me - tell me, I implore!' Quoth the raven, 'Nevermore.'
(A strange and spooky excerpt from The Raven, by Edgar Allan Poe, for your Halloween Week pleasure)
It's been a while since I've shared any of the mail art I've been painting and sending out to blog readers. I had a lot of fun creating this little Halloween-themed batch of "friendly spooks" for you guys. I hope everyone likes their letters. (Pop back in a couple of days and I'll give you a little sneak peek as to what's inside.)
Yours sincerely… xo
