Teach Your Children Well

Some say it takes a village to raise a child.  Others, that it takes a horde of chaos-tainted mutants and hellspawn to do the job right.  Based on this heartwarming photo from Warhammerlarp, I'm in the latter group.  The awesome chaos warrior is Dmitry Kleymenov.

Blank Bertillon Fingerprint Card

The Bertillon System was one of the first attempts to quantify the identification of criminal suspects using physical measurements.  Starting in the early 20th century it was expanded to include the use of fingerprints, and by the time of the classic Mythos era it was an accepted tool for law enforcement.

Setheus was kind enough to send over a PDF recreating a historical Bertillon card.  Here's the example it's based on:


The PDF, available over here, includes the front and back of the card ready for printing on cardstock.   It's available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International license that allows non-commercial use and adaptation with appropriate credit to Setheus. My sincere thanks for their work and generosity.

Journal De Z

I'm in awe of this project.

French artist Zachary Zeydh brings us the Journal De Z, a manuscript documenting the descent into madness of a researcher investigating the Cthulhu mythos.  What sets this apart from similar efforts is the sheer size of it.  The journal features dozens of pages, almost every one of them featuring a custom illustration.  The time and effort that went into it is simply stunning.
