Miskatonic University Prop Set

Since it's founding in the 18th century Miskatonic University has been one of the most influential and prestigious schools in the United States. It's students and faculty have traveled the globe, earning a reputation as tireless researchers and scholars without peer. Their willingness to quite literally go to the ends of the earth in their quest for knowledge has produced a body of work of unparalleled quality and depth. With that comes a sense of pride, in both the individual and collective accomplishments of the school's alumni.

We're proud to offer this collection of keepsakes in honor of that unquenchable spirit.

The Miskatonic University Prop Set



Intended as both collectables and props, the complete set consists of four items: An embroidered patch and lapel pin featuring the Miskatonic University seal, a period postcard of the school's Orne Library, and your choice of one of three different field journals.



The 4" (10 cm) patch is embroidered on a tough cotton twill backing that will last for years of use, and the heat-sensitive adhesive makes it easy to iron it on to the garment of your choice.



The handsome lapel pin is 1" (2.5 cm) in diameter and would look perfect on your Miskatonic varsity jacket. It's constructed of solid brass with an antiqued finish and a butterfly clasp backing.



The pocket journals are patterned after the notebooks carried by scientists and researchers in the field. Each book measures 3.5" by 5" (8.89 cm by 12.7 cm) and has a saddle-stitch binding, 1/4" rounded corners, a heavyweight cover, and 32 pages of high quality lined paper. All materials are 100% recycled and the cover designs are printed with environmentally friendly soy ink.

You have your choice of which cover design you'd like to purchase. The back of each cover is printed with the procedural notes and ruler as above, while the front features one of three designs: the Miskatonic University seal, the Miskatonic Antarctic expedition logo from "At the Mountains of Madness", or the Miskatonic Australian expedition logo from "The Shadow Out of Time".







Update: Unfortunately, I'm now sold out. My thanks to everyone that ordered.

Gee, sold out. Wow. Fans came out of nowhere. HPL fans, or, Propnomicon followers! What were you thinking, Prop? What about super secret?
Great work, Sir. People like what you offer, web content, sharing products, and all.

Yikes, I missed it completely. I don't suppose there will be another print run of notebooks in the future?

Pnakotus said...

What!? Sold out already? You need to have another run of these ....

Unfortunately, I was caught off guard when the hordes from Make and io9 descended today. I certainly don't want to seem like I'm complaining, but I sure wish I had more stuff in stock when they arrived. By tomorrow morning I'll have an exact count of what I have left and I should at least have some notebooks available.

Bugger. I assumed these were going up on Ebay or something. I'm not even sure WHERE the Buy Me link is/was.

I really hope you do another lot of these. Maybe before Christmas?
