Tale of the Seven Brothers

Here is a short tale about seven brothers and what happened to them.

 

 

 

A very long time ago there were seven brothers who lived in a village. Over time, one by one, the brothers died, until finally only one was left. Eventually, he also died of old age.

 

 

Those who knew the last of the brothers, felt his loss, and those who knew him hardly at all were less touched by his passing. That’s the way it goes. Of course this all happened long after the nine legged horse ran along the ridge just beyond the village, and Farmer Brown’s largest pumpkin hatched into a scarlet peacock that carried off Miss Margery. Well, some villages are like that.

      The illustrations are a form of asemic art. The narrative is a deconstructed fairy tale – recombining to the tropes in an ironic/unpredictable manner, so a somewhat asemic-dadaist approach. It started with a tweet from Fairy Tale fragments @fairytaletext.
