Necromancers of the Public Domain – February


Seek refuge from cruel, dark winter with the Necromancers of the Public Domain. Each month, we pluck a long forgotten volume from the shelves of the New York Society Library and resurrect it as a low budget variety show.

Get some culture. Get some beer.

This month: Masterpieces in Colour: Bastien Lepage (1911)

“There are certain beings who bear the stamp of the divine seal and are preordained to receive the higest favours within the gift of glory; they are fated to pass through life like those brilliant meteors which are seen to flash across the heavens and disappear in the same instant. Bastien-Lepage was one of those meteors.”
