Black Lamb

ABOUT

Now in its 14th year of publication, this magazine was created to offer the discerning reader a stimulating selection of excellent original writing. Black Lamb Review is a literate rather than a literary publication. Regular columns by writers in a variety of geographic locations and vocations are supplemented by features, reviews, articles on books and authors, and a selection of “departments,” including an acerbic advice column and a lamb recipe.

Consumerism run amok

March 1st, 2006

BY BLACK LAMB

Again we present an unparalelled opportunity for Black Lamb readers and would-be consumers: exclusive access to a magnificent gift compendium, the Whole Whog Catalog, first published in 1980. Take advantage of the original catalog prices by ordering today.

For this special issue, here’s a valuable product made possible by the same technology that brought us the television.

Video Hearth®

This hot item is the state-of-the-art in home fireplace convenience. High-realism video fire does away once and for all with fussing and fuming, dangerous flames, unpleasant smoke and odors, excessive heat, airborn soot, ash residue, and costly firewood and kindling. Includes videotape library of eight real hardwood fires, from mellow mahongany to exciting eucalyptus. Quality 25-inch solid-state color TV is built into your choice of two handsome fireplace consoles: traditional woodgrain look wall-mounted type with mantel, or contemporary freestanding metal hood type in persimmon enamel. High-fidelity stereo sound for hissing embers or a roaring, crackling blaze. Remote control lets you vary flame color, brightness, contrast, and volume.

Mantel set: Only $695.95
Hood set: Only $629.95

Order today, with check enclosed (shipping is free!), through Black Lamb, P.O. Box 4531, Portland OR 97208-4531, USA. Please allow six to eight weeks for delivery.

All entries are from the Whole Whog Catalog, by Victor Langer, Leslie Anderson, and Bob Ross, with a preface by Chevy Chase (New York:Times Books, 1980). •
