Raising Steam US Cover

Postby Pat » Tue Jul 31, 2018 08:47 am

You know the one.

The one they got the work experience guy to do using the neon pens he got for Xmas.

Does anyone have a picture? I need one for the Con. My index says I have a copy but I'm hedgehogged if I can find it, Could anyone oblige with a pic? (Phone camera resolution is fine) I can't even spot on on line!

regards
Pat

No, the one which has a black background and the words "RAISING STEAM" with each letter in a bright neon colour.

Once seen, never forgotten, though Om knows I've tried.... You can see the spine on page 7 of this pdf. https://2016.dwcon.org/media/downloads/ ... 0Guide.pdf

See what I mean? I'm sure I bought a copy a few Cons ago but it's possible I sleepshredded it...

No it's in the box you put things in you wish you hadn't bought - try looking for Waddy's eyebrow - it might be near that {snigger}

And it has turned up, in the cupboard in which it should have bveen, and where I looked for it at least three times...

Did you forget to call on Anoya? She might be for jammed drawers, but she's pretty good at finding things in front of your nose :D

Oook!

I think I saw a copy of this Abomination at the Charity Auction at the Convention :shock:

I only popped in and out while the actual Auction took place^, but I'm sure I saw it on the table with other auction stuff when I came to pay for my winnings. Did someone actually bid on it?

* Just in time to cough up over 80 GBP for an extra-oversized Tower of Art stamp - I regret nothing!
What ape? Oook! :book:
