Rouze Up!

Welcome to 2010! We've completed our inventory and our redecorating, and will post photos here soon. In the meantime, Mr. Marsh brought us a beautiful letterpress postcard with a message that seemed a good way to begin the new year. Just click on the picture to see it larger.

From Mr. Marsh: Here's something that came in the post-box for Wonderella over the holidays, part of a pack of small letterpress cards from my colleague Alan Brignull of The Hedgehog Press. William Blake, letterpress postcard, an artistic call to arms...what more can one want? Alan's about nothing if not equality for all, so I'm sure he'd say that the message applies to the rouzing up of all Young Women of the New Age, too. If anyone wants to get in touch with Alan, he's at:

Rouze up O Young Men of the New Age!
Set your foreheads against the ignorant Hirelings! For we have hirelings in the Camp, the Court & the University : who would if they could, forever depress Mental & prolong Corporeal War.

Painters! On you I call! Sculptors! Architects! Suffer not the fashionable Fools to depress your powers by the prices they pretend to give for contemptible works or the expensive advertizing boasts that they make of such works...
--William Blake, from the preface to Milton
