Pyramus and Thisbe!

A very touching love story that is sure to move anyone who reads it is that of Pyramus and Thisbe. Theirs was a selfless love and they made sure that even in death, they were together. Pyramus was the most handsome man and was childhood friend of Thisbe, the fairest maiden in Babylonia. They both lived in neighboring homes and fell in love with each other as they grew up together. However, their parents were dead against them marrying each other. So one night just before the crack of dawn, while everyone was asleep, they decided to slip out of their homes and meet in the nearby fields near a mulberry tree. Thisbe reached there first. As she waited under the tree, she saw a lion coming near the spring close by to quench its thirst. Its jaws were bloody. When Thisbe saw this horrifying sight, she panicked and ran to hide in some hollow rocks nearby. As she was running, she dropped her veil. The lion came near and picked up the veil in his bloody jaws. At that moment, Pyramus reaches near the mulberry tree and sees Thisbe's veil in the jaws of the lion. He is completely devastated. Shattered, he pierces his chest with his own sword. Unknown to what just happened, Thisbe is still hiding in the rocks due to the fear of the lion. When she comes out after sometime, she sees what her lover did to himself. She is totally shattered when she sees the sword piercing right through her lover's chest. She also takes the sword and kills herself. Underwater Photography by Anastasia Traina ~2015~

You have all made this such a magical experience for both David and I, and it is that very feeling of magic that we hope to share with others.

But before we submit to the challenges and compromises of the marketplace, we had hope to create a truly special volume, befitting an heirloom. So with that said, we are very proud that Bitsy and Raff’s Special Edition has fulfill our vision past even our own expectations. Bitsy and Raff is now all prim and proper, and ready to go to the presses, so that we may bring (very soonishly) to all those who supported our campaign their Special Limited Edition... However, before we do this we would like to extend to you our final offer of ordering your very own Special Edition of Bitsy and Raff! Due to the overwhelming response we have created a very limited supply of signed copies available for purchase!!
