Welcome adventurers to the November newsletter for Mythril Made and Heroes and Mortals Radio!
Written by Heroes and Mortals on November 22, 2023
Thanks to all of you that read and shared our last newsletter, we’re grateful for your continued interest and support. We too are always seeking new adventures so pull up a chair and read on for updates and a special announcement on a new project of ours.
New Mythril Made Products
After a very busy summer, we’re finishing up some of our Fall line of products with the following coming out for sale at the end of the month:
- Foil letterpress stationary: Four new products featuring letterpress artwork with a metallic foil design element that will delight fans of Lord of the Rings, dragons, elves (the fantasy kind, not the Santa kind), and Vikings.
- Ink letterpress stationary: Three new products featuring design elements of Gandalf and the Shire and updated reprints of some of our better selling dragon-themed stationary.
We love hearing what you have to say about our products, it’s what keeps us creating, and this review from happy customer Katie on our Have Yourself a Merry Shire Christmas card was very nice to hear:
“I absolutely love these cards! The details are beautiful and unique! Thank you 😊”
Individual or a bundle of 6 hand-printed letterpress cards with the phrase “Have Yourself a Merry Shire Christmas” emblazoned in gold foil above a comforting scene of your very own hobbit hole with Gandalf and Santa.

Special Announcement: Coming Soon to Mythril Made, The Foundations of Fantasy!
Introducing The Foundations of Fantasy Book Series: Celebrating the authors and stories that built the foundations of modern fantasy by reproducing and reintroducing out of print and hard to find classic literature, handcrafted to honor the printmakers and artists that helped bring their tales to life.
The first book in our Foundations of Fantasy series is the 1933 edition of The Story of King Arthur and His Knights, written and illustrated by Howard Pyle. First published in 1903, it was republished in 1933 and named the “Howard Pyle Brandywine Edition”, which will ring a bell for fans of J.R.R. Tolkien (who was 11 years old at the time of the first print edition) as the Brandywine River is one of the most important waterways in the Shire and the surrounding lands of Tolkien’s middle-earth.
This book is long out of print and very difficult to find but we have a copy and we’ve begun the process of scanning and retyping each page to reproduce the book in total with classic typesetting, rescanned high-resolution images of the original printed artwork, handmade letterpress inserts, and additional content alongside the original text and art.
Starting in December, only for subscribers to our newsletter, we’ll be releasing at least one chapter digitally each month in serial format on our website so you can read this seldom seen work and enjoy the story as we work on volume one of the custom print edition which will be available next year.
We think all of you will greatly enjoy this adventure of ours, and if you think others would too, please have them sign up for our newsletter for access to the digital content starting in December and new chapters and announcements on this project through all of next year!
We have even more planned in the upcoming months, so stay tuned.
