Richard Hawkins and the Haunted Dolls’ House by Derek McCormack
"The Haunted Dolls’ House" was written by M. R. James. James, it’s said, was the father of the English ghost story; if his wasn’t the first ghost story about a haunted dollhouse, it was the first to be famous. Its fame is enduring: though it was written in the 1920s, it's still in print. It's also in the public domain. Richard Hawkins is an American artist who recently had a retrospective at the Art Institute of Chicago; the retrospective opened at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles this month.
