The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories

Series of three illustrations for The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories by Angela Carter, with captions taken directly from the text.
























THE BLOODY CHAMBER
"The castle would shine like a seaborne birthday cake lit with a thousand candles."
























THE COMPANY OF WOLVES
"She bundled up her shawl and threw it on the blaze, which instantly consumed it."
























PUSS-IN-BOOTS
"A white hand fragrant as Arabia descends from the black cloak and reciprocally rubs behind his ears at just the ecstatic spot."
