Dammable Chapbook!

Hello again,

I’ve finally made a start on making the hand-bound chapbook pledge reward. As the story I’m including (‘Witch In-Grain’ by R. Murray Gilchrist) is very short, I’ve decided to include a second story by the same author – ‘The Basilisk’. I think they work nicely together, a couple of late 19th century tragic romances full of folkloric doom!

In addition, I’ve decided to stamp a new lino print on the first page, exclusive to this chapbook, an illustration of the mythical Basilisk creature. I’m printing them on a lightly textured 100gsm ‘antique vellum’ colour (or 'cream' as I call it) laid paper, and hand-binding each copy with a seven stitch binding technique. And yes, it’s only just dawning on me just how long it’s going to take to print and bind all fifty copies, ha!

There are fewer than ten copies still available, so spread the work if there’s anyone you know who’d like one!
