This Week's Crass Commercialism

I have one of the few remaining Miskatonic Antarctic Photo Sets up on Ebay this week. I thought that finding a source of photographs that didn't use branded paper would be relatively simple, but that hasn't turned out to be the case. If anyone knows of one I'd appreciate a pointer. The only requirement is that their photographic prints cannot have any kind of modern marking or brand identity logos.

Later in the week I may have a few more bottled specimens. The unavoidable physical abuse of sending them through the mail, combined with the brittleness of the wax seal in cold temperatures, caused some problems in the last batch. I've been doing some experiments and think I've found a relatively simple solution.

BTW, there are few things louder or more terrifying than the shrieks of a 13-year old girl discovering a preserved Lovecraftian beastie chilling in the freezer. Trust me, I know.
