    PENNY DREADFUL - 1841 Murder Case

    Downloadable PDF. Fresh from the site of a once-notorious nineteenth century murder covered in the book, where knitting or textiles was key evidence that hung the murderer, we'll tell you the story with an exclusive, illustrated book excerpt. Our Penny Dreadful will be exclusive to the Kickstarter. This was a sensational case that made national headlines at the time but is almost forgotten, now. There will be some added info; exclusive words and pictures for only backers, here.

    Penny Dreadfuls were broadside sheets sold on street corners. This is a digital version of that age-old tradition.

    Baa Lamb Lino-cut Hand printed Bag

    HuntPrintStudio's lino-cut print, hand printed onto a cotton bag. Great for projects. HuntPrintStudio is printing these bags personally - we're not getting them done for us by a firm. So they're made by the artist and special. You can see a prototype of our baa lamb logo, based on a medieval stone carving at Rievaulx Abbey here in Yorkshire, on our Story.

    'Their Darkest Materials' Book - Signed

    Perfect bound, paperback. Approx. 220 pages. Illustrated (b & w). Get one of the first available copies - hot off the press. Signed (which may or may not devalue it!?) This will be the first edition. Interest in this book has been so high that I suspect there will be later editions! By supporting us here, you're helping us stay in control of the creative process. This book has been a few years in the making and an utter labour of love. I didn't want to hand it over to a publisher, and risk a butchering. So this is for my loyal readers from 'The Knitter' and elsewhere who already 'get' this, and share this love for textile history. The book contains many previously unpublished elsewhere snippets, and represents much original research deep in various archives. I'm passionate about dragging this into the light, where it can be enjoyed and shared and the names and stories of 'lost' knitters, makers and wearers - ordinary people - have been tracked down and are celebrated.

    You can choose to submit your real name, or your nom de plume. Advise us accordingly. You will also receive a first edition, signed copy. Anyone who's bought a book from me knows, I rarely sign at all.
