    Humor-ous Description: Display a piece of classic literature with its age and character intact. A unique addition to anyone’s den, office, study, foyer, billiard room, or ballroom. Or maybe you want it in the bathroom, and hey, who are we to judge? We could go on and on trying to combine complicated adjectives to motivate you to purchase our product, in fact we wish we could. But we can’t. We're too busy doing things like trying to age paper without it disintegrating in our hands, or getting our fingers stuck in the mechanism of a 71 year-old death-trap of a typewriter. (Wall behind print not included.)

    Humor-less Description: We’ve hand typed the poem "Annabel Lee" by Edgar Allan Poe. (Drawings and 11 x 14 prints are machine printed using high-quality pigment based inks and are hand-aged.) All our prints use paper we have personally aged through our own multi-staged process. The pictures are taken without glass so you can see the detail, but be assured framed prints will ship with glass installed!

    Illustration: The Annabel Lee drawing is by C. Lyle Skelton and was specially commissioned for this piece. (Click here to find out more about the artist!) Part of the proceeds from every sale will go directly to the artist.

        Poem Text
        Annabel Lee

        "It was many and many a year ago,
           In a kingdom by the sea,
        That a maiden there lived whom you may know
           By the name of Annabel Lee;
        And this maiden she lived with no other thought
           Than to love and be loved by me.

        I was a child and she was a child,
           In this kingdom by the sea,
        But we loved with a love that was more than love—
           I and my Annabel Lee—
        With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven
           Coveted her and me.

        And this was the reason that, long ago,
           In this kingdom by the sea,
        A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
           My beautiful Annabel Lee;
        So that her highborn kinsmen came
           And bore her away from me,
        To shut her up in a sepulchre
           In this kingdom by the sea.

        The angels, not half so happy in Heaven,
           Went envying her and me—
        Yes!—that was the reason (as all men know,
           In this kingdom by the sea)
        That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
           Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

        But our love it was stronger by far than the love
           Of those who were older than we—
           Of many far wiser than we—
        And neither the angels in Heaven above
           Nor the demons down under the sea
        Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
           Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;

        For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams
           Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
        And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes
           Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
        And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
           Of my darling—my darling—my life and my bride,
           In her sepulchre there by the sea—
           In her tomb by the sounding sea."

        Edgar Allan Poe, 1849
