Teacups and Candlewax

The silliest tea party I ever went to

The fascinating original opening titles for Penny Dreadful, cut at the last minute. The imagery is chilling, weird and gorgeous.

Go and read the artist’s explanation!

…The titles depict the show’s Victorian archetypes as figures frozen in time, set adrift in the dark limbo environment of their psyche where they are tortured from within. They are losing the battle against their inner demons, which are manifested as black insects and snakes made of obsidian stone, breaking out of the beautifully formed prison bodies of our protagonists…

This needs more love.

I prefer the current titles, but this is gorgeous.
