Casting The Runes and Other Ghost Stories by M.R James

Casting The Runes and Other Ghost Stories by M.R James

This was a self directed project that was based on eerie extracts from a Victorian Gothic fiction, Casting The Runes and Other Ghost Stories, written by M.R James. The end result was a book which included eight illustrations of ghouls and ghosts with the extracts to go along side them.
