Whoopee! Today's mail contained a much-forwarded, much delayed Coraline Box, one of the fifty handmade assemblage boxes containing carefully pinned-down puppetry artefacts from the production of Neil Gaiman's new movie Coraline (based on the sublimely creepy kids' book of the same name). My box contained puppet shoes — four-and-a-half pairs, and a foot in flipflop ("Flip-Flop (Left) Father Size 12 1/2").
What a treasure.
(Tell you what, if you want to see how to intelligently market creative work online, go and follow Neil Gaiman around for a month or two.)
