Love By Lamplight, the captivating first issue of The Lighthouse Chronicles series, is a unique collaboration between poet Mona Morsy and artist Devon Delcastillo. This innovative series blends the emotive power of poetry with the dynamic visual storytelling of comic books, creating an immersive artistic experience. Love By Lamplight presents a collection of four distinct poems, each brought to life through Delcastillo's stunning illustrations. These poems weave together themes of love, loss, resilience, and the quest for light amidst darkness. The lighthouse, both a physical structure and a symbolic beacon, guides readers through the emotional journey of each of the four poems, which are standalone pieces, yet together they form a cohesive narrative tapestry. Mona Morsy's vision for The Lighthouse Chronicles series is bold and innovative. By collaborating with a different artist in each issue, the series promises a diverse array of artistic interpretations that bring her poetry to life. This approach not only highlights the richness of artistic collaboration but also ensures a fresh and engaging experience in every installment.
