I bought this for the Charles Keeping illustrations He s one of my three or four favorite book artists and I collect his work wherever I see it Bless because otherwise not only would I have no idea what his body of work consisted of I certainly wouldn t be able to find itSo I picked up the Wedding Ghost This is pretty typical Keeping but not my favorite I love his work in Rosemary Sutcliffe s books where the concentration is less on these strange body outlines that he does the limbs beneath the clothes and on the organic shape that a person in a cloak makes for example where the shape is defined by the body beneath it rather then the body sort of showing right through the clothing The faces in this are disturbing because they re so dam ugly Even the wedding ghost the spectral bride or woken sleeping beauty whichever you want to term her is beautiful in repose but actually rather terrifying while awake in the expression of her face and in her movementI have no real idea where they were going with this story it is odd and creepy Some of the art is beautiful some is just strange I would ONLY buy this if like me you re collecting Keeping s work
