Etta Diem's Dusty Shop of This & That
Making crafts dark and steampunky so you don't have to!

NOTE: This is a pre-sale for the Bajema's Web Collectons II, Etta Diem book. Please note that this book will not ship until it arrives from the publisher the first of May 2009. The pre-sale offers special extras that are available only through the pre-sale, but I want to stress that the book will not actually ship until it arrives in May. Thank you for noting that, and now without further ado...

Bajema's Web Collections II: Etta Diem
The name sake for our brand and shop has her own collection! My second collection of work introduces my character Etta Diem with new artwork and writing all done in Miss Diem's somewhat antique and eccentric style, and all of the art and writing she is involved with as a Snapdragon Tea character.

This collection includes Etta's encyclopedia of Harmful Sensation, her mostly true stories of the strange and quirky (like the tale of the prostitute popular during the Jack the Ripper times, who was singled out by her chattering teeth... that didn't happen to be in her mouth) and a variety of other dark humor tales from Victorian times. The collection also includes a new series of steampunk/dark fantasy styled art that had not been seen as of yet.

The pre-sale includes:
01: A discounted purchasing price of the book, $16.66 instead of the $24.00 regular selling price, plus shipping.

02: Three metallic prints of work in the book that will only be available through this pre-sale offer.

03: A small, hand drawn original doodle that will be yours and yours alone.

04: And lastly, like the first pre-sale for book one, the first forty issues will be signed and numbered. These will also have a limited edition alternative cover for the book (seen in this preview of the book cover).

As mentioned above this is a pre-sale. My book is set to be delivered to me the first of May 2009 and all pre-sale books will go out when they arrive. This is a good way to nab a copy of collection two at a discounted price with a few limited edition perks. The first sale went quickly and sold out so I recommend taking advantage of the sale the sooner the better.

And for those of you who nabbed a copy of the first collection I give you my many many thanks. I'm currently waiting for the second printing of my first book to arrive and when they do the first one will be available again.

The Chiropterothopter is an aether-driven mechanical aparatus, made for the collection of blood samples from would-be targets; It is a handy tool for spying, scrying, cursing, or assassination - so easy to use that even a mere doctor of ancient metaphysics would say is only somewhat difficult.

This replica is lovingly Hand-Crafted by Myke Amend. It involved many, many hours of work, and a lot of good materials. At an art show, or on hos site, this one would typically be priced at no less than $400. A need for some sort of sale has changed this for this week - don't let the low price fool you into thinking this is a low-quality item, as it is a personal favorite - very detailed, and a completely unique, one of a kind, something you'll never see again item.

The piece does come apart - wings detach - revealing mechanical insides to the creature. Coffin: The wooden coffin is gilded with gold leaf, and the legs are solid brass. The interior accents are made of brass bits, clock parts, and ceramic polymer clay.Figure: The figure is meticulously crafted in intricate detail piece by piece. It is made of brass, clock parts, and polymer clay. Accents are done in hard enamel paints. This piece is not a toy, it is a sculpture, a work of art. It has tiny parts which children (or adults) can choke on.

To purchase, please follow this link.

I'm not sure how well many of my images will reproduce at that size. However, with the tarot collection most of them can reprint at larger sizes so inquiries are welcome on them for the next week.

Some Ghouls Wander by Mistake, by Myke Amend
Boyfriend pimping begins here: We've been without internets for a few days thanks to snow and the fact that our cable line is attached to the house with twine and broken bottle caps. But now we're all up and running and I can direct you to a new section in our Attic Shop. That would be here, behind this little linky here! I've made a variety of items from Myke's comic Some Ghouls Wander by Mistake. If you do not already have a copy of this smashing title, you can correct this problem by taking this link and grabbing a copy for yourself. Even if you have not, those who like their tee shirts and novelties with dark humor, mad scientists and steampunk cuties, these are products for you. So be a good lad or lass and pop on over and have a look around. Comments are welcomed, or suggestions for different designs. We're also beginning to put our dark valentines up for the approaching romantic day. Visit here or our etsy store over the next few weeks to see what we have to offer. Now off you go, have a good day, and make sure you give your sammich head kitty lots of love!
