The perfect gift for the book lover with shelf space…and no gargoyle to fill it.

This may in fact top my previous brilliance in uncovering the zombie-hand bookmarks: behold, MINIATURE AUTHOR ART DOLLS! I’m sure you will agree that the likenesses are extraordinary.

This one is obviously a miniature Maya Angelou.

These are available at UneekDollDesigns, by one Debbie Ritter at the link below.

I am, frankly, astounded that this idea has not been leapt upon and appropriated by the major book selling chains.  Although on second thought, the pressure of having one’s image captured for posterity in doll form may spawn a whole new trend towards plastic surgery and excessive dieting amongst contemporary authors as they strive to attain unreasonable standards of physical beauty prior to immortalisation in fabric and crafty off-cuts.

Laybuy now for Christmas.

Cheerio,

Bruce
