    THE YELLOW BOOK R/R

    @NeilFord - Fucking hell, Neil... The detail on that... ornamentation(?) is intense. Also, for some reason, my brain keeps trying to matrix it as bone and hair work, even though it's obviously not.

    Can pure typography represent the decadent and disgusting? Had to back-date this one a few years to make it hit a relevance point. Too subtle? Too much?

    Oh Jeez... Perfectly subtle, I'd say. I had to stop and think "what's that 'O'?... Oh." Perfect for any newsrack and perfectly debauched for any dandy's home.

    @Sizer - And a much preferred alternative to seeing the image of a certain internet phenomenon of that period that you're tipping your hat to. (Not that it doesn't immediately conjure the image back from the recesses of the garbage disposal of my mind... ack...)

    Nixon: I couldn't ask for a better response.

    Wonder if people will request a desktop wallpaper version of this one...?

    I went with an erotic version of that whole Oz/Slumberland/Neverland fantasy thing leaping around at the time.

    Yellow Book

    Funny thing is this is the first I've heard of this, but in one of my comics I'm using something called the Yellow Book as a maguffin that ties into WB Yeats.

    @Brendan - I'm not sure why, but yr entry makes me imagine a hypothetical Sinfest strip where Tatsuya has gone mental and flashed back to the Victorian era... Which is, of course, a compliment.
