Spring is finally here, and the many avid gardeners among us are turning over a new leaf — quite
literally, in the case of our compost piles. With that in mind, we bring you four new products
from partner Winged Bull Press on the themes of "green" and "compost." Happy
New Titles from Winged Bull Press
This series of tablets recently appeared on the antiquities market and was snatched up by Winged Bull Press. Contained on 20 tablets were the actual clay prints (you can't really say blueprints, can you?) for Ashurbanipal's royal outhouses, including permanent and portable models. This edition includes cuneiform hand copy, transcription, translation, and textual commentary. The textual commentary is complete with color swatches, and decorating tips. Also includes an index, artist's reconstructions, and glossary.

In the finest tradition of First Compendious Near Eastern Grammar, Vol. 2: The Unknown Languages, Winged Bull Press is pleased to bring you great eyewitness accounts of the nesting rituals of unicornus mythicus and the socialization of young Yeti.
Using our Real Life™ reconstructions on the enclosed DVD, you can see the T.Rex, the unicorn, and other antediluvian animals in their natural setting. Do your own research and publish the findings (royalty plans available for using Real Life™ videos). Winged Bull Press has the perfect storage unit for your research findings in our Winged Bull Compost Bin.
Contains an appendix explaining how to deal with large quantities of compost, both from your research and from the animals on the ark.
Fertile minds generate lots of paper. Winged Bull Press has the solution. The great minds at Winged Bull Press have always felt that the Green Press Initiative is a great start, but didn't go far enough. This past year, after numerous market tests and much research, they are proud to announce the solution to messy desks, overflowing inboxes, and the general paper clutter that is so abundant in the academic setting.
Introducing the Winged Bull Compost Bin.
Now available in three models:
BS for "Baby stuff," looks like a copy paper box. Easily fits under a dorm room bunk bed; no handle required, just flip it over every few days. Makes great compost out of those syllabuses you always seem to get each semester.
MS for the graduate student; it handles those monographs you have to accept but will never read, the reading lists for your comprehensive exams, undergraduate exams, all those other things a busy TA and graduate student never has time to look at. Looking suspiciously like an inbox, your students will never know they are actually improving your plants, not just their minds. Expandable, just stack like regular inboxes. If you get over four high, though we recommend the granddaddy of them all:
The PhD, for really piling on the compost. This model will handle the offprints, book reviews, requests for recommendations, committee meeting reports, faculty notes, press releases, etc., that you never seem to have room for. This model looks just like a 2 drawer filing cabinet, complete with handle for turning — just remember to turn the label on the drawers over when you turn it. This model will turn out great compost in less than a semester, so you will always have room for the next semester's onslaught of new... ideas, yeah, that's what they are...
