A is for Astral Projection

Astral Projection - Rebecca Chaperon
This is my favourite image from Eerie Dearies by Rebecca Chaperon. Instantly reminded me of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

The images in Eerie Dearies (and from Great Black Fire) are very compelling. All of them suggest a fantastic world of mystery populated by hapless girls and plucky heroines.

Reminds me Edward Gorey too, of course. But it's Edward Gorey mixed in with a bit of Tim Burton who then went to visit Alice in Wonderland via the Surrealists. Love it!
