Following on from the massive success of our pre-order promotion for Tallest Stories and An Emporium of Automata, we are continuing with a very special offer for Defeated Dogs. Customers who order one of our 26 promotional preorders will receive:
- A hardcover copy of Defeated Dogs by Quentin S Crisp hand lettered and personalized as you like
- An exclusive chapbook containing the author’s new short story The Magical Universe
- A unique bookmark/sculpture created by the artist Miranda Keyes made out of the author’s hair
Yes – you did read that correctly. The author’s hair. Close examination of the cover of the book will reveal two separate Quentin Crisps, what you might call a before and after image. When I asked for unusual promotion ideas, he was quick to offer both this unusual resource and even suggested an artist to take on the project. Quentin sacrificing his hair for the project and an artist who (among other things) makes jewelry out of fish – all this was something I couldn’t possibly resist! The bookmarks are made by setting the hair within crystal resin and I am still not sure whether to call them bookmarks or beautiful and strange sculptures.
In addition to a truly unusual offer, this also helps underline the fact that Quentin’s writing is far from just neo-classical. He is a highly experimental and original voice, and I am very pleased to offer extras that help emphasize that.
