But what had befallen the night?

"And what ailed the chestnut-tree? It writhed and groaned; while wind roared in the laurel walk and came sweeping over us." Jane Eyre, chapter XXIII

I can't claim that this print was inspired by Jane Eyre. I made this etched copper intaglio print 10 years ago as an art student in college. Still, it seems fitting.

"I perceive these pictures were done by one hand: was that hand yours?"
"Where did you get your copies?"
"Out of my head."
"That head I see now on your shoulders?"
"Yes sir."
"Has it other furniture of the same kind within?"
"I should think that it may have: I should hope-better." Chapter XIII

I hope so, too.
