hi man, I'm new to your blog but it's really interesting to me. I've got the same fascination for odd and gory art since when Iwas a child.I found "igyu no soiree" de antoine bernhardt for a ridiculous price...what a piece of madness! Wicked stuff. but bloody well done. I would ask you if you can suggest me a site with medieval wood engravings...concerning murderous event, of course.I would need em for a small project of mine.
Ask or not, keep this good work up!
