"I have one aim - the grotesque. If I am not grotesque I am nothing"
                                        Aubrey Beardsley

 Aubrey Beardsley was an English illustrator and author. His black ink illustrations were influenced by Japanese woodcuts. His early death was due to tuberculosis.

I used to have an old book of his entire illustrations and have no idea what happened to it.
