I very much love the illustrations and woodcuts accompanying chapbooks. There is a story entitled the World Tunrned Upside Down which I find very inspiring as I adore topsy turvy, anthropomorphic ideas, and these themes are used in Montol in Penzance also. This particular one is about lawyers partaking in vices of their clients, involving opium, strumpets, booze and poison ("Pox take thee for poysoning I" cries one who is vomiting on himself - hand rendered) but I have a number of similar characters being pressed!
I also make music and music videos as steampunk pirate GurdyBird, and these images will be used in my next video, "Tomorrow the Fox Will Come to Town". They will be very limited in edition, if you would like to support these projects I have a Patreon page with a number of rewards, one of which on the highest tier involves a presentation book of all of the original prints from the video and replica props or costumes.
