The Yellow Wallpaper

Instructor: Paul Kepple
Story by: Charlotte Perkins Gilman, 1892
MFA Project: Illustrated Book

This project is an illustrated version of the short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, originally published in 1892, which tells the story of a woman who slowly descends into madness due to understimulation. Gilman’s semi-autobiographical story criticizes the attitudes toward women’s mental health in the 19th century.
