Houdini escapes from evil under the Great Pyramids

Welcome!  This is a brand new "little" treat for you, hand made by me!  I have a week break in the finishing of another project while I waiting for a machine part, so I have decided to finish this piece.  I have been slowly working on for quite a while.  This was intended to be a holiday present to all the folks who helped me get the Fantasy Fan book off the ground, well it turned out so cool I decided to do an edition of 200 for anyone who might want to have something a little fun.

First off,  the book is a 60 pg hardcover book, containing the story "Under the Pyramids"  also titled "Imprisoned with the Pharaohs"  originally published in the world famous WEIRD TALES magazine circa 1924.   Ghost written by the legendary HP Lovecraft for the equally legendary Houdini!!  

 What makes this book so special is that it comes in a custom miniature US Postal mail bag, and PADLOCKED CLOSED. (the key is on the INSIDE).  So, you have to mimic Houdini, and pick the lock to get to the book.  Once inside you will find a beautiful little book, sizing up at 4" x 5",  containing 4 original illustrations by the weird and wonderful Nick Gucker.  each book is hand numbered and there is a RANDOM signed letterpress print in only 50 copies. 
  Thank you to all who have purchased from me in the past, and I hope you enjoy this little "thing" until I finish with the epic MARVEL TALES!!!!  Also, check out my listing for a new t shirt design of the Houdini image shown above.  Silver ink on Black....very cool!
