For those of you who may want a tie-in...

Check out Interred With Their Bones, by Jenniffer Lee Carrell. It's available thru amazon, and, as far as we're told on the jacket, a major best-seller. It's a story along the lines of The DaVinci Code, but based on the heroine looking for... well... let's just say something very exciting in the academic world. It also gets into some of the intrigue during Shakespeare's time and a bunch of other material that may just generate some ideas for a book test.

Like DVC, a good chunk of the "historical" stuff is fiction, but it's still a good read.

I had thought they shipped last week?
Ah, well to quote the master:

“Oft expectation fails,
and most oft where most it promises;
and oft it hits where hope is coldest;
and despair most sits”.
-William Shakespeare-

The suspense is killing me! If I wasn't working so much, I'd see if I could just pick them up!

Hey, everyone. It took longer than expected to get these in the mail, but they're on their way! Everyone who's seen it is just speechless at the elegance and intricacy of this amazing piece.

On this and the other Shakespeare thread, I am offering a one-week only special for Magic Café readers. The introductory price is over and The Shakespeare Experiment is now $300. However, for Magic Café guests, I'll honor the old price of $275 for another week. Shipping in the U.S. is our treat, but if you live anywhere else, add $40 for postage (CA residents also add 8.25% sales tax.) Send via Paypal to toddkarr@aol.com and we'll pop yours in the mail!

I itch for these things, but not being a pro, I just can't justify spending the money. There are so many wonderful things coming out now. Please, just let me salivate over them.

Then Todd must not quite have you under his spell yet. Look carefully at his foto up there and feel your will dissolving...

In the mean time, please don't drool on my Shakespeares. Considering I don't really have any bad habits to drain my money, I consider myself fortunate to have my addict habit reserved to Amazon, Fry's, HPLHS and Magic Collectibles - it's an addiction that leaves me stronger and smarter so well spent I say. (and I don't have a wife to contend with at the moment so PARTY ON!)

I don't dare look too long at that photo, otherwise I would be so poor I'd be living in a cardboard box!

I had a friend whose brother died at a young age. Her philosophy then became: "If you want it, get it. You don't know how long you'll be around." As much as I sympathize with that philosophy, and having lost my brother also at a young age, I have a wife and grandchildren to think of.

Hey, if Rolls -Royce cost ten cents a carload, I couldn't buy a Yugo hubcap.

The Shakespeare Experiment just arrived.

First thoughts (just out of the box)

--The book is smaller and lighter than I thought,
a very good thing!!!

--The book looks “real”
a very necessary thing!

--OK, it looks too “new”
and I am just going to HATE to have to wear and age it a little.

--Geesh! This must have been a TON of work to produce!

I can’t comment on the magical aspects yet,
but wanted to give a first impression at least.

Magically,
Walt

Ok Walt, you had to rub it in didn't you. You are closer to your mailbox than I am right now!

I am glad it is not the size of some of the Shakespeares I have. One of them is a BEAST!

My thinking is you can compensate for some of the "newness" of the book by using a very nice antique or at least appropriate looking bookstand like you would find in a fine book conservatory. Like this: http://bookstands.net/232.html BTW, this site has a very nice selection using fine hardwoods (drool). Love this one: http://bookstands.net/022.html

A bookstand makes it easier to handle the book and protect it. I can't imagine the screams that one would utter if a spectator accidentally dropped this book.

I am more inclined to treat this like a fine collectible (Because it is!)rather than just a book. That lends a certain air to it. Consider the dismal statistics for people reading or buying books (if anyone is interested I will post them - shocking!), it is very good odds that most you perform for will have never been in the presence of a fine book. Sad, but that is just the state of things. That experience alone will be a gift for some people. One of the things I would like to communicate, even if in subtle ways, through this effect is a love of books.

For my two-cents, I think (oh the pain!)
I will have to rub some dust into the leather and dog-ear the page corners a bit....
this will almost kill me,
but it just looks too new and beautiful right now!

The bookstands look great,
and will work very well with the extra props that come with the book as well!
Thanks.

Magically,
Walt
