Les Fleurs du Mal As Illustrated By Carlo Farneti

The 1935 edition of Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs du Mal (The Flowers of Evil) by the Italian illustrator Carlo Farneti. There’s nothing that says crazed fever dream like a dejected figure facing a gauntlet of monstrous, crimson-eyed owls or a crowd, their faces twisted in fear, gathered around a towering casket.

    Nice. Has a sort of James Ensor meets Max Klinger look to it.
