Love can’t always be depravity, torture racks and snipping the heads off flowers … sometimes love turns dark
In the spring 2018 issue of our quarterly periodical, Hung, Drawn and Quartered, we take a look at the loss of love, and how to survive a broken heart. With essays from A Gothic Curiosity Cabinet as well as some new ones, penned especially for this publication, we look at the romantic poets, how the gods deal with undying love and heartache, lessons drawn from the romantic poets, the Addams Family and Bewitched and of course, sex.
Also included is The Witch’s Gardener, or how I ended up tending the garden for my own witch. For fans of nature’s poisons and hallucinogens.
With gorgeous art from Cate Davies of pretty little poisonous flowers that have a life of their own.
