[DWJ] Dwj Digest, Vol 101, Issue 7

Some of you might remember a while back I had some risograph prints based
on Fire & Hemlock. They're all gone now, but I recently added the artwork
to Society 6 for printing as prints, canvasses and most importantly, mugs
(sadly the original artwork wasn't large enough to take them up on their
offer of babygros, clocks or cushions). They've got some kind of special
deal on with free postage this weekend. I've got other designs too, if you
like cosmonauts or Euripedes.
