Going Postal

Over the Bank Holiday weekend, we were treated to a wonderful two-part adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s Going Postal on Sky 1.

I had salivated over the trailers and was not to be disapointed. I LOVED every minute!

For those of you who missed it – fear not: it’s being repeated on Friday 4th June at 6pm, or you can watch it on Sky Player online. There will also be a DVD released later this year.

The costumes and sets were amazingly detailed and entirely evocative of madcap steampunk Victoriana. Wonderful stuff. Casting seemed spot-on, too, with excellent performances all round.

Of course, all this inspired me to create a selection of themed goodies found from various talented designers and sellers on Etsy. Recently, their Treasury section has allowed for one extra item per line, so even more to feast the ol’ peepers on.

You can see larger pictures at my Treasury page, but for your delectation, I present my Going Postal round-up…
