YAY For POE!
"We are very excited to announce that the Poe Museum will be reopening in just a few days! We are having an early opening for donors and members, so if you can't wait for the 14th, go to our website and donate or become a member! We will be operating with new procedures so make sure to click on the link in our bio so you can be prepared for our new museum experience, which includes timed entry, an audio tour, and other changes. You will still be able to see all of the exhibits, purchase items from our gift shop, and pet Edgar and Pluto! We look forward to seeing you all soon."––The Poe Museum
Limit of 10––due to the current demand of face masks
over all on TeePublic. (Hey! HNM Producer MATTHEW SANDERSON grabbed a
BCP & TPt mask for himself just this morning!)
HOW TEEPUBLIC IS HELPING:
TeePublic will be donating one FDA-approved surgical mask to Direct
Relief, a nonprofit organization working to provide relief to those on
the frontlines of combating coronavirus, for every non-medical fabric
mask purchased. For the most immediate impact, we are making an
upfront donation of 10,000 surgical masks in order to cover the first
10,000 fabric masks sold on TeePublic. As part of its coronavirus
response efforts, Direct Relief is "coordinating with public health
authorities, nonprofit organizations and businesses in the U.S. and
globally to provide personal protective equipment and essential medical
items to health workers responding to coronavirus (COVID-19)."
“The Works of Edgar Allan Poe (In One Volume)” (1927)
Always a publisher of consumer-friendly, cost-effect editions of the
classics during the early-to-mid 1900s, Walter J. Black still managed to
offer some very interesting tomes. And “tome” is a term that truly
describes The Giant International Series. This all-inclusive volume
looks like what should be titled the “Poe Bible” or “Poe Grimoire”. The
very gothic, bas-relief cover and spine state boldly “Welcome to the
castle, I’ll be waiting for you in the dungeon.” With a Special
Biographical Introduction by Hervey Allen (“Israfel: The Life And Times
of Edgar Allan Poe”), this is a serious collection that almost demands
to be read by candelabrum at the witching hour and when the moon is full
I love the old Heritage Press books with slipcase, and this one is no exception. A 1930 edition of Poe’s only novel, “The Narrative Of Arthur Gordon Pym”, it is simply stunning and glamorous with it’s stark blacks and whites––from the ebony slipcase to the swirling cover, to the avant-garde print design and woodcut-style illustrations by Rene Clarke. This book displayed on the coffee table will definitely inspire conversation…at least when your more urbane pals drop in for an afternoon latte or evening martini.
