Mid November 2005: Strange Fortune Newsletter: Holiday Cards Preorder, Sally Doherty, Ark RecordsA Strange Fortune Update, Mid November 2005
HOLIDAY GREETING CARDS 2005 PREORDER OFFER
Apologies about bringing up the holidays so early in the year, it's a little ways off yet... there's just one small thing that calls for planning in advance.
This year you have a choice. You can send out to your loved ones generic drugstore Christmas cards with some completely unmemorable standard design. Or you can send out cards featuring enchanting winterscape paintings by Tor Lundvall. For the select few in the latter camp, Strange Fortune has you covered.
Following an enthusiastic response last year, we're once again offering holiday greeting cards by our favorite artist Tor Lundvall.
Tor's magical visuals will be familiar to many of you from his distinctive album covers for his fine recordings as well as for Sol Invictus and others.
All 2004 greeting card sets sold out. The 2005 edition is currently in production and is to be a small limited edition once again, likely to sell out, you'd be well advised to stake your place in line quickly. This time we're featuring the Tor Lundvall paintings "Winter Sun," "Still," and "Outpost." A boxed set of 15 greeting cards, five of each design included.
Reserve your Tor Lundvall holiday cards today for a special preorder price of just $15 & shipping at http://strangefortune.com/cd.php?id=2665
Something about Sol Invictus attracts the most brilliantly talented individuals. Aside from main man Wakeford himself, collaborators Tor Lundvall, Matt Howden, and Sally Doherty all come to mind easily as first-rate stars in their own right.
We're pleased to welcome the amazing Sally Doherty to the Strange Fortune distribution family.

Sally Doherty Quartet / Foolish Heart NEW 2005 / $13
