Miscellaneous Auctions

This is a Worldbuilders blog.

Okay. Today we’ve got stuff up for auction that, doesn’t really fit into any of the other blogs.

Among other things, we’ve got limited edition art from Neil Gaiman and Vincent Chong, signed bookplates from Pratchett and Robert Jordan, and the Arkenstone.

Yeah. Seriously. The Arkenstone.

The folks at Badali Jewelry, the folks that created the Eolian’s talent pipes for me, have been officially licensed by Middle-earth Enterprises to create a replica of the Arkenstone of Thrain.

Your Akenstone replica is made of fine K9 Crystal treated with an Aurora Borealis plating to give the stone a magical glow. The stone is nestled on a black velvet pillow inside a Dwarven crafted chest. The runes on the outside of the chest read Arkenstone, written in the same Dwarvish runes found on Thorin’s Map.

Many thanks to Badali Jewelry for this cool donation.

You can bid on this Arkenstone replica here.

  • AUCTION: Miss Austen Literary Pin-up Giclee by Lee Moyer.

In this numbered giclee print, (#2 of 4) by Lee Moyer we have the early version of the art that eventually became November’s pin-up in the  calendar we printed up for this year’s fundraiser.

  • AUCTION: Signed bookplate by Robert Jordan.

This bookplate bears the signature of Robert Jordan, the late author of the Wheel of Time series as well as many other books.

Bonus! This bookplate includes Brandon Sanderson’s signature. He is authoring the remainder of Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series.

You can bid on this over here.

  • AUCTION: Signed bookplate by Sir Terry Prachett, OBE.

This is a signed bookplate by Sir Terry Prachett, OBE. It bears a black and white copy of Terry Prachett’s coat of arms, granted to him by the College of Arms in 2010 when he was knighted.

The motto means “Do not fear the Reaper.”

  • AUCTION: One 35mm Vintage Film Cell from The Last Unicorn film.

This is a vintage film cell from the classic animated movie, The Last Unicorn, animated by Rankin/Bass, the same production company that produced the original animated Hobbit.

Donated by Conlan Press, this unmounted film cell comes packaged in a clear envelope signed by Peter S. Beagle, who wrote both the novel and the screenplay for the movie.

You can find more information about the film cells on Peter Beagle’s web page and newsletter.

In keeping with our Last Unicorn theme, we have one 5ml bottle of Touched Twice, a perfume created by Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab to commemorate the Saturday, August 6th screening of The Last Unicorn/signing with author Peter S. Beagle.

This scent was only available during the signing for four hours. It will never be available again.

This was the very last bottle of the scent Black Phoenix had, and they were nice enough to give it to us for our fundraiser.

    Regarding the Robert Jordan bookplate, it was also signed by Branden Sanderson at Penguicon this year. That’s his squiggle up top =)

      Just saw that on his Not a Blog. He has some lovely things to say about Pat and the book.

        I thought that was pretty great. It also had about ten of my friends calling me asking me “Isn’t that the book you are incessantly babbling about.” Sure they don’t trust my opinion but George R.R. Martin…

        I guess I can’t blame them on that.
