The Fantastic in Art and Fiction

This link was sent out at work today, and it relates to the previous post on The Omen quite well, :) (more below) but, The tile of the site explains it all, so just go ahead and check out all the fantastic artwork. (required viewing)

Sponsored by Cornell University's Institute for Digital Collections (CIDC) this image-bank provides a visual resource for the study of the Fantastic or of the supernatural in fiction and in art. While the site emerges from a comparative literature course on the topic at Skidmore College, it is also intended to open the door to consideration of some of the constant structures and patterns of fantastic literature, and the problems they raise. In this sense, the materials presented here may find a use among students in a variety of disciplines. (
