::: a quick update on the YOUR FATE TWISTING, EPIC IN ITS CRUSHING MOMENTS ep. the first batch of pre orders has been sent out. thank you all for the leap of faith and support. and my apologies for any and all delays. this ep will be officially released on july 3, 2011 which means that the pre orders will end in the next few days. this is the last chance to get the ep at the pre order price.
::: there are a couple of extras that are now included with this release. first is a poem typed on handmade japanese kozo paper. the paper was made by me from scratch, from beating the plant fibers into pulp, to pulling and forming the sheets. the poem which accompanies IN THE TUMBLING DAWN LIGHT, THEIR EYES FALL FROZEN THROUGH THE MIST AND RAIN was typed on a vintage manual typewriter and it includes typos and other corrected mistakes. not all poem sheets look the same.
::: the second item is a set of 3 water slide decals of the skull and cross bones drawing. these are not stickers! to use please read the instructions on the back of the handmade carrying sleeve. you can see some examples where the decals can be used in the pictures. if the decal is applied to a mug or other dish-ware please be advised that it is not dishwasher safe. the sleeve is constructed from hand cut vellum and shellac coated red gum veneer.
::: on a final note, this blog has become the home base of simple box construction on the internet. in the coming days i will be working on organizing and adding content such as reviews and compilation downloads. the lack of time and funds prohibits the building of an official simple box website. for now this is it. thank you for reading and your continued support.
