Killhouettes, Morbid Victorian Style Paper Art Silhouettes

Touted as the Victorian silhouette cutter’s nightmare, John Fair’s Killhouettes are as imaginative as they are morbid. Inspired by classic Victorian paper silhouettes, Fair has twisted this art form in a new and deliciously blackhearted way. The subject matter runs the deathly gamut from a woman drinking a toxic elixir to a penny farthing riding pistol-packer to an axe-wielding baby in a pram and much more. Each of his hand-cut designs are available to purchase as 5″ x 7″ framable pieces on his website.
