Shiverbones Kirscht vintage Beistle Halloween Inspired "Frightful Fence" die cut

I am so glad that some smart collector snapped this up right away. Matthew Kirscht is one of the most talented contemporary artists working in the Halloween genre today. (I would argue he is the most talented.) Matthew, a long-time friend of mine, designed and laid-out my third edition. To all of those who have expressed your deep satisfaction with the look of the new third edition, swivel your eyes Matthew's way. I was lucky enough to grab one of the original large fences several years ago and it now adorns the side of a large dollhouse I use to house 30-40 German Halloween candy containers. Matthew needs to produce similar diecut items. I have often told him I will take one of every such thing he makes!
