Since most of us will never have the cash to afford a James Jean original, these little cards provide some solace.

He blends a variety of ethereal, heavenly and demonic images in such a beautifully captivating way.

Small book of 30 postcards beautifully illustrated by the ex-Fables cover illustrator James Jean. Need to buy a second set for mounting.

No story as such only the narrative that you make in your head as you gaze upon each image.
