Necromancers of the Public Domain


Seek refuge from February's tomblike nights 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 of Colour: Bastien Lepage by Fr. Crastre (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."
