December 2005: Strange Fortune Newsletter: Tor Lundvall Holiday Cards Last Chance

A Strange Fortune Update, December 2005


In case you don't have your Christmas cards figured out yet this year (I'm sure this is many of us)... you still have a last chance (if you hurry...) to claim your Tor Lundvall Holiday Greeting Cards edition 2005 presented by Strange Fortune, and receive them before Xmas with enough time to make use of them this year.

All orders for greeting cards from now until Xmas are shipping by 3 day priority mail in the US at no additional charge.

Tor Lundvall Holiday Greeting Cards Edition 2005 is a boxed set of 15 greeting cards featuring magically enchanting winterscape paintings by Tor Lundvall.

Tor's 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 another small limited edition, of just 100 boxes. This time we're featuring the Tor Lundvall paintings "Winter Sun," "Still," and "Outpost." Useful product or valuable collector's item? it's your choice!

Claim your Tor Lundvall holiday cards now for just $19 & shipping at

or... you could always drive to some drug store and buy something mass produced and classless for around the same price! oh joy!


It's hectic here at Strange Fortune headquarters but we're doing our best to get all open orders to you before Xmas. All domestic US orders up through Monday the 19th are receiving a free upgrade to expedited shipping (first class or priority mail). If something in particular is a gift, let us know and we can tell you whether you'll be able to receive it before the holiday. Overnight shipping can be arranged by special request, contact us about that.
