Decorate Your Mantelpiece… and RUN!
Found this via BoingBoing, and what a find indeed. Novelist Ben Tripp wrote a “zombie thriller” (Rise Again), but didn't like the book jacket designed by his publisher -- so he made a website to give away his own alternative dust jackets… and apparently was unable to stop making more and more zombie-themed papercraft & printables.
From his website:
Horror fans have one thing in common: they appreciate the most tasteful things in life. For you, the readers -- the fans -- we present this elegant nativity scene, crche, or crib.
Bring joy to Grandma's heart by downloading, printing, and assembling this attractive tableau. It will make her hump fall off.
I truly like the semi-real-yet-cartoony style, really reminds me of the nativity set my own family used for 30+ years, often augmented with various FisherPrice and Happy Meal characters when the odd lamb or shepard would go missing (now we know what really happened to them).
His site's a rich zombie resource with many undead inspired Christmas goodies, but I think his Nativity Set's my favorite, followed closely by his “Zombie Santa” Ornaments.
He's apparently taken the nativity set off his website, so I'm re-posting it here.
It's A Zombie Haiku Christmas
Once on Christmas eve,
with one infected fruitcake
the world fell apart.
