Tonight we’ll celebrate the launch of Liisa
Ladouceur‘s Encyclopedia Gothica at the Gladstone Ballroom in Toronto. (London Ontario, you get a chance October 13 at Nite Owl. See Liisa’s site for details.)
We introduced our Victorian Oddities collection in spring – very out-of-season, but when we like an idea, sometimes we just run with it – and we included pieces featuring sideshow stars Jojo the Dog-faced Boy and Annie Jones, a fabulous bearded lady.
Oh, and there’s a Ouija serving tray up for grabs too. “Great for serving spirits!” we like to say.
We can’t wait to see the amazing illustrations by artist Gary Pullin – what we’ve seen so far is wickedly good. It’s sure to be a dark but fun affair….
Now I must go pull out my circa 1985 crimper and play the The Cure as I smudge on the eyeliner and smell the hairspray sizzle.
