"...inside lay a clasp of black onyx, on which was inlaid a curious symbol or letter in gold. It was neither Arabic nor Chinese, nor, as I found afterwards, did it belong to any human script." (Chambers, "The Yellow Sign", 1895)
This Yellow Sign pin is the result of many dozens of hours researching multiple languages, their letter forms and pictography, and attention to the hinted details in Chambers's works, as well as risking our own well-being with a detailed exploration of a rare French copy of the original The King in Yellow play (including illuminating marginal notes by an unknown and seemingly unfortunate previous researcher), on which Chambers based his fiction. With this tedious research came glorious results, and we're able to present, for the first time, this replica of the true Yellow Sign.
This pin is 1.5" tall and fastens with a safety pin style clasp.
