Fantasy Illustrations from 1506, these are alternate covers for “Le Grand Testament – Villon” probably printed in Paris over 500 years ago.

Girl and Knight - Jessie M. King

This Illustration has been pulled from my unorganised ‘inspiration’ pile of clippings/photocopies I’ve been collecting since University. Alas, I’m not sure of the title or the Artist, though the wonderful detailing is similar in style to the work of Aubrey Beardsley and I’m guessing from the same era.

Welcome to the beginning.

This was the first post ever published on SFOR way back in 2008. To help you quantify this time that’s 4 months before Apple launched the App Store and George W. Bush still has another 10 months in office.

If you’ve decided to read this blog from start to finish, a word of warning that writing quality will vary! And therefore may include occasional and gratuitous swearing with ill-informed observations based on loosely cemented research. Still, there’s plenty of nice imagery…

Good Luck, and thanks for visiting.
