The Lifted Veil
The second installment of the Ghastly yarn club, inspired by classic works of gothic horror, was inspired by George Eliot’s The Lifted Veil.
In this short but haunting tale first published in Blackwood’s magazine in 1859, our unreliable narrator Latimer shares his woes about being able to sense the future.
Most picturesque of these visions is his shockingly detailed premonition of Prague, a city he’s yet to visit. The pops of turquoise, blue black, and coral orange found in the city’s skyline also fueled the dyeing of this colorway, with a handmade stitch marker that hints at the strange medical experiments found later in the book after a doomed-to-fail romance. Earl Grey tea and a colorful Prague sticker round out this stormy spring club.
