Ahoy, mateys, avast!

That's right, it's one of me favorite holidays of the year! Friday, this Friday, just four short days from today, is Talk Like a Pirate Day!

And all you swashbucklers, buccaneers, privateers and, yea, even landlubbers can celebrate all week long! The Interimaginational Institute is offering a very special special: anyone who purchases two or more treasure maps (prints or originals) from September 15 to September 21 will receive a FREE print of "Sea Monster Breath" (No need to add this print to your cart; it will be sent automatically with qualifying orders).

So stock up on treasure maps, load up your ships, buckle on your swords, grab the parrot, raise the sails, pour the grog, and get ready for big adventures!

AND, me hearties, you'll be able to take your pet sea monster with you, although you mighn't want to let him get too close to the parrot.

Hope it works well for you!

Wouldn't be more interesting to use maps of legendary lands that once actually appeared on globes?

I'm thinking Crocker Land, or Frisland, or when they thought California was an island.

I actually collect such maps, you see, so I find them interesting.

Crushed, I think my maps are very interesting... you don't?

I make it a point not to use other people's creations, with the occasional exception of old fairy tales and legends. And although I am greatly inspired by antique maps, I certainly don't want to just copy them... they already exist, those maps, do they not? Isn't it much more interesting to make NEW places?
