Robert W. Chambers masterpiece of weird fiction, The King in Yellow, is an exploration of the reaches of human consciousness, art, and insanity. At the center of it all is a damned play that has driven readers mad across the world. The first act is beautiful in word and form, but ultimately banal, which only serves to disarm the reader for the second act, which is of unnatural beauty and reveals soul-shattering and hideous truths. This shirt features an interpretation of the King in Yellow himself, as his mask drops to reveal decadent and unholy revelations. There is also representation of the Hyades star cluster and a quote from the play, "Songs that the Hyades shall sing, Where flap the tatters of the King, Must die unheard in Dim Carcosa."
