The Fantastic in Art and Fiction


'The Fantastic in Art and Fiction' is an image bank and online exhibition curated by the Cornell Institute for Digital Collections. The website offers an illustrated and scholarly overview of the gothic and supernatural fantastic, as seen in historical art and book illustration. Images are available at several sizes and can be sorted by theme. The majority of the 295 images are black and white or tinted, and most are book illustrations. There are short introductory texts for each section, and suggestions for further reading.
