"Do What Thou Wilt" shirts, canvas prints, pillows, totes

I was sort of going for supernatural themes crossed with circus for this one? Just wanted to do something strange and colorful, and a perfect Aleister Crowley quote to match. 

oh, there’s also a sepia version for those that aren’t too hot on neons. 

Napolean Sarony, Oscar Wilde, 1883

Rare close-up portrait of the infamous Irish writer and poet Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde. This beautiful card was produced by New York’s famous 19th century photographer Napoleon Sarony of New York City. It has the added bonus of having originally been part of the Meserve collection. Frederick Hill Meserve (1865-1962), a New York textile executive is considered America’s first great photo collector. His ink stamp on the back reads “THE COLLECTION OF AMERICANA OF FREDERICK H. MESERVE, NEW YORK.”
