The Innsmouth Fogcutter tiki mug is part of a meta-narrative inspired by HP Lovecraft's story "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" (you should read it if you haven't...I'll wait right here). The artifacts and ephemera I designed around an outline for a romantic tragedy set in Innsmouth. This romantic tragedy flows from fan theory; if you and your beloved were both raised knowing you were special and really would be together forever, what would happen if you couldn't be?

 

Geoffrey Gilman, proprietor of the Gilman House lounge, would like to welcome you.

The Kickstarter raised $20,000 in the first 50 hours, and eventually raised almost $40,000.  Rewards started shipping a month early, and more than 75% of them were mailed before the original shipping ETA, with less than 19 remaining to ship at the end of the estimated shipping window.   


THANKS

These names were recovered from a badly smoke and fire damaged guest book take from behind the bullet-riddled antique bar in the lounge of the Gilman House.

First and foremost, thank you to all these weird and wonderful visitors to our little corner of Innsmouth.  Geoffrey Gilman will buy you a drink the next time you drop by. 

 

Additionally, Jonathan M. Chaffin of Horror In Clay, would like to thank the following.

  • Most of all, thank you to my wife Allison and to our daughter for living with me in a world of boxes and again putting up with a house full of madness, and for helping pack boxes all night for 2 months.
  • To Wendy Cevola, who produced our glorious limited edition sculpture and glaze variants. 
  • To Jason Rogers of Fezorama.com who produced the luxurious Esoteric Order of Dagon Fezzes for our happy cultists.
  • Thanks to Alex, Jamie, QJ, Becca, Heather, Cliff, and Pynk for copy-editing and general cussedness.
  • Thanks to Pauli, Hammad, Nick, Chuck, and everyone who has supported us with word and deed. This is an amazing adventure.
  • Thanks to Alan Stoll for stepping into the breach once again to record my unscripted rambling (Alan is CTO at www.btfdtv.com)
  • Thanks to Becca, Jamie, Cliff and Heather for giving up far too much time to try recipes and schlep lights. 
  • Thanks to Paul Senft of www.rumjourney.com and "Got Rum?" magazine for consulting on how to design a rum tasting and for generally being so free with his knowledge (and liquor cabinet).
  • Thanks to the BookHouse Pub (GA), Tacoma Cabana (WA), Cane & Table (LA), Joystick Gamebar (GA) and anywhere else that still serves tiki drinks the right way: in a frosty ceramic mug. 
  • Thanks to Lorinda Dechman (http://lorindadechmanphotography.simpl.com/) for her talent behind the camera and to Genevieve Sabine of the Vauxhall Garden Variety Players (http://www.vgvariety.com) and Jeff Thornton (http://jeffthornton.carbonmade.com/) for their talent in front of it. Also for their knowledge about civil war era culture and etiquette.
