A gothic classic paired with its modern day doppelganger.


In the 1820 classic, Melmoth exchanges his soul for immortality. Sarah Perry's masterful retelling casts Melmoth as a woman who is condemned to walk the Earth forever. Melmoth tries to beguile the guilty and lure them away for a lifetime wandering alongside her.


You'll receive: 

- the 'Melmoth' dopplegangers which are both gift wrapped

- A quirky bookmark

- An art meme postcard
