In September of last year I received a catalog request from Warren Farha, the owner of Eighth Day Books
, of Wichita, KS. As I was filling out the envelope I searched google and came across their webpage and I saw this quote, "that which is true, is ours". Little did I know that we would make an order of handmade mugs for Warren, and that that order would have a 'true' story of it's own.
- Original line drawing of the store and our emblem design
And that true story is told by Joshua and it goes like this:
"Just as we were unpacking your delicious shipment at the front counter (we call it the 'front counter' but it's by the back door), our friend Philip (long-time customer) came in to buy Christmas gifts for his (prodigous) family. He was immediately entranced by the mugs, and selected 8 as stocking-stuffers."
So the very first day that EIGHTH day books had their mugs, they sold EIGHT... How Cool!
