Henry Darger wrote thousands of pages about the Child Slave Rebellion, a sci-fi or fantasy story chronicling the Vivian Girls as they tried to escape from hostile rulers. He also illustrated the novels through a collage process utilizing newspaper and magazine cut-outs.

Darger. When I discovered him, I rejoiced/despaired that what I had been trying to do my whole life, he had already done better.

One of the many amazing works of Henry Darger, the most amazing and inspiring accidental artist to have existed, in my opinion.
