Deep Red Coffee

Dreadful Argento/coffee related puns aside, just imagine sipping your morning coffee from a mug featuring a full-colour image from one of the three editons of Broken Mirrors/Broken Minds: The Dark Dreams of Dario Argento... What better way to start a blood-spattered day?

Author of Broken Mirrors/Broken Minds, Maitland McDonagh, has commissioned three ravishingly designed mugs featuring the artwork that adorns all three editions of her tome - widely regarded as the cornerstone of Argento studies.

Pick your favorite cover, from the 1990 Andrzej Klimowski-designed first edition to the 1995 Opera cover and the new barbed-wire Suspiria version. Note the way the interior glaze is coordinated with each image's dominant colour. Purdy.

Go here for more information, or to purchase one. You know you want to...

I would buy these mugs James, but I spent my last shilling on the 'Broken Mirrors/Broken Minds' duvet cover and pillow case combination set, it goes well with my 'Broken Mirrors/Broken Minds' wallpaper and matching lampshades. Does Miss McDonagh have plans to expand further into the realm of crockery?...I'm positively gagging for some souvenir plates and salt & pepper shakers.

You know Shaun, if there were 'Broken Mirrors/Broken Minds' wallpaper and matching lampshades, I'd have 'em in my house! And don't get me started on the salt & pepper shakers... ;o)
