Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning!

    Sure, that pit and pendulum was all a bit of fun, and now look at you!

    The Price is Right …
    … over there on the wall.

    I think this particular piece of art spends all its time stuck in a closet.

    They missed a trick, not giving old Vincent a pair of goat horns.

  5. JuanPaul Says:

    Did you know that Vincent and his wife, Mary, were food connoisseurs?

    I own a reprint of ‘Come Into the Kitchen’ which sounds very ominous coming from Mr. Price.

    @JuanPaul: Growing up in Thames Television’s catchment area, I first heard of VIncent Price when he did a cookery show in the early 70s (around the time of ‘Theatre of Blood’) and only found out he was a film star later. He’s probably single-handedly responsible for introducing creole and cajun cuisine to Blighty.

    As for the cover – doesn’t Svengoolie own the original?

  7. GSS ex-noob Says:

    This actually isn’t too bad. It’s recognizable as Price and it’s the sort of pose he’d do for publicity. Only one font though it’s a little eye-straining.

    @JuanPaul: I did know that and about his art collecting. He was quite a well-rounded person.

    The world’s most boring “put your head through the hole and get your seaside postcard taken” attraction. (There must be a snappier name for those).
