The cat and the window by soniabraga
“What’s your name,’ Coraline asked the cat. ‘Look, I’m Coraline. Okay?’ ‘Cats don’t have names,’ it said. ‘No?’ said Coraline. ‘No,’ said the cat. ‘Now you people have names. That’s because you don’t know who you are. We know who we are, so we don’t need names.” ― Neil Gaiman, Coraline

'Scuse the glare, but I just have to show you these and I am in the forgiving mood for when the sun wants to come out these days. Here are two illustrations mounted on gold matte in black plastic frames. The subject matter? The Betsy Ross house and Elfreth's Alley! It's so historical I can feel it, see it. I can't imagine how many back-door deals were made in the taverns around Elfreth's during the revolution. That drunk guy puking in the alley last night? It was future statesman Benjamin Rush! How many salons did Betsy Ross host that ended in brawls? Both frames are 17”x13” and they're a little bowed where they've been hung. $24 each or $40 for the pair. Frankford Jinxed.
