henry darger, who was born in 1892 in chicago, wrote a 15,145-page (!!) manuscript called ‘the story of the vivian girls, in what is known as the realms of the unreal, of the glandeco-angelinnian war storm, caused by the child slave rebellion’.
the vivian girls are seven as well, but we didn’t know about them when we decided to name our band vivian void.
the story is illustrated with several hundreds of amazing drawings and watercolor paitings. this trailer gives a little impression of mister darger’s work //
