Well, I don’t really have any fascinating, exciting news (new semester’s just started, things are in motion but nothing really to report just yet) but I do have a ton of amazing links to share!
* “Elegy for a Dead World” is a video game that helps players write. It’s beautiful and brilliant, full of Romantic poetry and strange worlds. You can buy it here.
* Guillermo Del Toro is making a “dark Victorian fantasy series” for Amazon that features fairies. I can’t even describe how excited I am.
* Mirror Mirrored is very cool book project pairing an eclectic mix of contemporary artists with Grimms’ fairy tales. I’m so eager to see how this turns out!
* A thesis about dragons in 13th century Iceland! And speaking of Iceland, how about some awesome witches staves? My sister brought me back a necklace from Iceland with one of these on it and I’m delighted to now know what it represents!
* The “Brothers Grimm Wanderings” landscape photography series by Kilian Schönberger is absolutely enchanting.
* More gorgeous, magical photography by Nona Limmen – she’s very inspired by Albert Einstein’s idea that “the most beautiful emotion we can experience is the mysterious” :).
Whew! Go explore!
