Dungeon Alphabet: Why Did No One Tell Me?
So my hardcopy of Dungeon Alphabet arrives today from Goodman Games, and I discover for the first time (having only owned the PDF version before) that Peter Mullen's stunning endpapers are in AD&D module-map blue! Frabjous day, calloo callay! Why is Peter Mullen not selling prints of his work? Or am I just too lame to find the place where he is selling prints?
I love the old school Kobolds!ReplyDelete
The 1st printing of the D.A. (which is what the PDF is based on) has the endpapers in black and white. When the book needed a second print run, Goodman Games decided to go with old school module blue, a decision I heartily endorsed!ReplyDelete
I love Peter's illustrations and I have this one displayed on the outside of my referee's screen whenever I run a game.
Thanks for the clarification, Michael. I should note that the text to which this image is appended ain't too shabby either!ReplyDelete
Funny to think the "module blue" that we are so nostalgic for was original a means of preventing photo-copying of the maps.ReplyDelete
I like your banner. Tyr rules.
