O DEATH - RAVENS IN A GRAVEYARD MEMENTO MORI POSTER

During the Victorian era, cemeteries were considered the place to be and the place to be seen. Some of the most interesting graveyards and cemeteries are located in England, Bunhill (probably from the words "Bone Hill"), Highgate and must we not forget the most poetic and beautiful of all, Père-Lachaise cemetery.

At the bottom of the tombstone in the poster is an old saying that had once been inscribed in stone:

Remember me as you pass by
As you are now so once was I -
As I am now so you will be
Prepare for death and follow me.

This poster is 17 inches wide by 22 inches high, generous black ink lushly printed on parchment.

PLEASE NOTE: This poster image was hand drawn by Madame Talbot using nothing more than pen and ink on illustration board.

After the poster was completed, it was taken to a real printer and printed on an offset printing press.

Absolutely no computers were used in the making of this poster, all of it was drawn entirely by hand.

The copyright notice is on the website image only and not on the printed poster.
