All Hallows

Hello again!

Here’s Damnable Tales lino print 20 of 23. This time, it’s for Walter de la Mare’s tale ‘All Hallows’, first published in the collection The Connoisseur, and Other Stories, 1926. A visitor to the titular church meets its lonely verger, who gradually comes to speak of an evil presence surrounding the building. I love the oppressive atmosphere conjured throughout the tale, and the striking descriptions of its uncanny cathedral, exposed to the coastal elements. Strong stuff!
