Lamenting Avalon


Originally written by Salazar Crato, court alchemist to Catherine the Great, as part of his otherwise lost series, “The Book of Eternal Recurrence,” these stories “fairy tales for adults” were translated into English by Institute President Benjamin Wachs, and released on the Institute’s own imprint. Original artwork for this limited edition run was commissioned from Corviid, Will Brown, and Laurelle Hafen.

In all, it contains 11 fairy tales, 12 full paintings, and 18 hand drawn images, across 230 pages. Together, it is addictively and horrifyingly beautiful.
