But I just wanted to let you know that the Johannes Cabal art you've just posted is the most fantastic thing I've seen all week. Thank you for (inadvertently) making my afternoon! :D (Love the outfits, too - I kind of want Leonie's ensemble for myself...)
Oh, wow! This is the sweetest thing I’ve heard all week!
Leonie’s dress is one I shamelessly drew from the Metropolitan museum’s online collection, which is a wonderful resource! I mean, yeah, for art, but also fashion and history and all kinds of cool stuff.
Fun fact: It wasn’t until my roommate pointed it out while I was working on this that I realized the series wasn’t set in present day… I’d always wondered why they took a boat in the third book.
