  • Working in publishing, sometimes it can be really easy to lose all concept of time. All around the office, you can spot books that aren't set to come out for another, oh, six months or so. This is a common scene around the HQ:

    "Did this come out yet?"

    "No Eric, that book isn't out for another year."

    "What about this one?"

    "That book comes out today... did you have your coffee yet?!" 

    And you know what? I'd like to confuse you a little too.

    We at Quirk fully support getting tattoos of amazing things (just ask Eric about his epic Jules Verne tattoo). If you really, truly, ohmyGodIcan’tstopthinkingaboutit love something about your fandom (and you’re not afraid of needles,) a tattoo is the perfect way to wear your heart on (the skin beneath) your sleeve.

  • There’s certainly no shortage of science fiction and fantasy-inspired crafts on the internet, and it can sometimes be hard to make heads or tails of the offerings. Would it be better to create a felt Triffid, or embroider a map of Middle Earth? Would heading to a pottery studio to make a replica pensieve be a good use of your time? Or how about a papier maché Nautilus?

    The choices is intimidating, so to streamline the process and get your crafting as soon as possible, here is a selection of sci fi and fantasy-inspired cross stitch patterns that are great for beginners.
