Heh. I downloaded that Grand Guignol poster the other day myself.Second from the bottom there is the cover image for The Virgin Witch.
I love some 70s witchy realness.
The historical story behind pic #4, of "corpse queen" Inês de Castro, is pretty inspirational in its own right:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In%C3%AAs_de_Castro...but better still if King Peter had actually had the means to reanimate her in some cruel mockery of life.
Either way, I'm glad you mentioned this as it's perfect for something else I'm working on.
Oops, my mistake, that one's actually of the "Cadaver Synod", the posthumous trial of a Pope: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadaver_Synod...posthumous trials generally being an all-the-more interesting concept in a society where one can raise the dead.
Also fits in with something I am working on!
Good stuff! I really like the John Blanche drawing... haven't seen that one before.
Thanks. Yeah, Blanche does great witch-hunters, right?
