1: The Cornish Litany #/9 #/3 : This lantern (listed together with a set of 12 postcards) features verse of The Cornish Litany originally seen on postcards from Cornwall in the early century. This lantern features a Bindlegrim-esque take on this frightful prayer, and I was happy to see this get a nod this year from the Pumpkinrot blog:
From Ghoulies and Ghosties
and Long-leggetty Beasties
and All Things that go Bump in the Night,
Good Lord deliver us!
Read more about the lantern (and related postcards) from this blog entry Lanterns for Ghoulies and Ghosties or see more images in the following flickr gallery:
2: The Space Witches #4/5 was quite honestly just a riot to create! This lantern features 12 different images based on plastic candy containers of witches and rockets. Bindlegrim expanded this idea to take a journey into outer space, traveling with these witches and their black cats, to encounter aliens and other problems - like white mice running loose inside your space helmet!
