Well, the Cataloging Cave seems to have survived Halloween intact, and
most of the Book Elves made bail in time to get this catalog together.  I
know I say this every time, but there’s some interesting stuff in this
one. Whale oil, fake arrowheads, weird sunflowers, snuff, ostriches and
croquet mallets -and more. 
I can’t decide whether my favorite quote
from these items is the woman who compared early American rug hookers to
Matisse, or this one-

"The savage who tattoos his flesh is a painter, the barbarian who
ornaments his club with carvings is a sculptor, the Indian who constructs
his wigwam in the forest is an architect, the cannibal who sings in
triumph while his enemy is burning at the stake is a musician, and all are
artists."

I think I’m just going to leave it there.


Have fun with our new catalog, which can be viewed
or downloaded as a .pdf file here ->
