Book Baubles: Gaiman II (Graveyard)

It’s a strange mix of winter and spring right now in Toronto, and The Graveyard Book is a few wonderful hours of entertainment if you’re in the mood to stay in all warm and cosy while looking out at the wind wreaking havoc on the city. Here are a few items to really get you in the mood:

  1. Your own copy of The Graveyard Book, The Book Depository:
    9780747594802 If you can’t borrow one from a friend, this edition of the book is one I’m really partial to – the cover is eerie, and the illustrations by Chris Riddell are gorgeous! Order it online from Book Depository here (it’s 20% off and shipping is free!), and have a wonderful surprise mailed to you in a couple of weeks. Totally worth it.
  2. Brown sweater dress, Starlet Vintage: il_570xN.908480640_9x6jThrow on this sweater dress to really get into the character of Bod Owens, who was there and not quite there, but in the end, really was. Get this dress here, from Etsy seller Starlet Vintage.
  3. Jack of All Trades card holder, BalsamRootGlass
    If you, like me, became mightily intrigued by Jack, you can pick up this card holder from BalsamRootGlass and subtly announce your interest. Of course, that might lead to a few nondescript men paying you a rather unexpected visit.
    Get the cardholder here.
