Flowers were used for the hair. Gorgeous art nouveau-inspired portraits of Miyazaki's characters Is most of what people call Art Nouveau really just Mucha?

Harry Clarke's Haunting 1919 Illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Maria Popova Artful Edwardian-era erotica at the intersection of the whimsical and the macabre. Somewhere between Henry Holiday’s weird paintings for Lewis Carroll and Edward Gorey’s delightfully grim alphabet fall Harry Clarke‘s hauntingly beautiful and beautifully haunting 1919 illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination — a collection of 29 of Poe’s tales of the magical and the macabre. So lavish was the artwork that a copy of the “deluxe” Clarke-illustrated edition went for 5 guineas in 1919, or about $300 in today’s money.
