Has a dastardly curse struck the E.T.Printworks printing press? Has one of our recent stories raised the ire of some Evil Goblin or Wicked Witch who has now wreaked their revenge? Worry not! Enchanted Times Mini is shrinking for a far more benign and practical reason: our miniaturisation is due to growing demand from a small-but-expanding faction of our readership – elves, goblins, dwarves, fairies etc – who find the current page size far too cumbersome for their own diminutive dimensions. Similarly in the Real World, what dollshouse would be complete without a copy of Enchanted Times to complement the miniature environs? Yet the previous size of ETM was all too large for the hands of the majority of dollkind…
Therefore with aspiration only to satisfy our growing Goblin Markets, E.T.Printworks is delighted to present to you the freshly shrunken Enchanted Times Mini, of almost microscopic proportions (barely a quarter of original Mini size at just 3.5 x 4.75cm): The Teeny Tiny Times. The print is still legible to the human eye while the scale is far better suited to our lilliputian friends. Those of a larger stature will of course continue to be catered for, and twinsets of both Mini (original) and Mini (micro) editions will henceforth be available (more to be added shortly).
The first dual-scale issue to be released is December’s ETM, None So Blind, in which Queen Rapunzel initiates the Great Salad Plan and clearly demonstrates that she is not at all bitter. Further news to follow, in the New Year…
Be behind the Times, not behind the times! ETPrintworks has recently released 4 new back issues of Enchanted Times Mini, to keep you up to speed with all the latest, oldest stories. Now available:
- ETM #0.1 – Reverse, Revise Recycle:
an introduction to the everyday philosophies of the Enchanted Realms, and an overview of how our times have changed/are ever-changing. This issue features 2 original illustrations of the less common Lemur interpretations of Little Red Riding Hood and Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. We also report on an ongoing trial regarding Mr. B. B. Wolf and the Pygg brothers, proprieters of property rental outfit, Pygg Lets. The AAAA (Action Against Archetypes Alliance) anxiously awaits the outcome.
- ETM #2.5 vol. i – The rat in the hat came back:
we discover what happened when the Pied Piper made the mistake of returning to the scene of his most infamous crime, and the townsfolk finally exacted their revenge. This issue is sponsored by Pied Piper Pipes (Providing Pipes for the Professional Piper in Pursuit of Piping Perfection). We also feature an exclusive ‘evil rat’ illustration by Linda Bowman, and an equally exclusive ‘evil rat’ embroidery pattern for cross stitch and/or blackwork.
- ETM #5.5 vol. i – None so blind:
introduces the King’s plan for a healthier future, beginning with provision of free salad plants for all households, and includes a redeemable coupon for you to claim your own FREE packet of Rapunzel seeds! This issue also features the press release issued by Queen Rapunzel herself, recounting the events which led up to the Great Salad Plan; plus small ads from our sponsors, plus an update on the latest Witch Report, in which the Bad Fairy responsible for the Big Sleep is finally apprehended and brought to trial. Further news on this in our next issue.
- ETM #5.5 vol. ii – The big sleep:
reports on activities within the Royal household – which have long lain dormant – following the awakening of the young Princess Aurora. Why has she been forbidden from conducting interviews with reporters directly? Who is her unusually short Prince, and why does he have such an affinity for the accursed spinning wheel, such a fondness for gold, and such keenness with regard to the production of Royal babies…? We address these questions and more! In other news, the newly crowned Princess Cinderella steps forward as ambassador for StABS (Stop Abuse of Beautiful Stepdaughters) Foundation; and we bring you small ads from our sponsors, including a new spin on the old classic, Who’s Afraid? Worry Bag, now complete with Royal endorsement!
