Unicorn News and Announcements
There is a new Unicorn story by Larry Hooten on the stories page called
"Family Secret", I really enjoyed this one and I think you will too !
Looking for a
MagicStables Carousel Horse Creations,
in Montpelier, ID, USA may be able to help you ! They create some
carousel Unicorns, Pegasus and horses too, their website
is also good to visit as well, so do take a look !
This excellent site has an
increasing number of Unicorn windows desktop themes,
screensavers, wallpaper and other items. There are many excellent items here
(and dragons too) contained in a very neat and easily navigable website.
Just follow the Fantasy catagory from each menu item to find the unicorns !
I must really congratulate Gill on the exceptional work that has been done here
to create these themes and the easy installation instructions too.
Put a unicorn on your PC today 8-)
A good friend emailed to
tell me about this, many of you who like unicorns have
seen the wonderful movie "Legend". It appears from this web site's pages that
soon there may be a special "collectors edition" DVD issued ! I'm certainly looking
forward to this, and I guess many of you out there also will be too. The Legend FAQ
is an excellent website on this film, and anyone who enjoyed it and wants to find
out much more about it really should visit this webpage on this topic
which is full of well written information, news, facts and more !
It looks like many hours of research was done there !
There will soon be a new unicorn film released by a UK based production company, called....
Thanks to "Peakviewing Transatlantic" for giving me permission to use their material on this site.
It's a story of magic and adventure, which I'm informed will soon be be shown around the world on TV and is also coming out on video in the United States very soon, I hope they also release it in the UK.
There is a lot of information, pictures and a "Quick Time" movie trailer on the films website, so do visit it soon !
I hope to be able to obtain a copy on it's release, and write a review of it on this page too. If anyone else finds any more news about this film, then do let me know
Online Unicorn Colouring Book
Want to have a go at
colouring your own Unicorn pictures ? Yes, there is
an online Unicorn colouring book ! It's part of the Awhitehorse.com Arabian
horse website, and it's recently been expanded with even more
pictures to colour by the sites author and artist, Stacey Mayer.
The art of Ed Beard Jr
I met this artist
at "King Richards Faire" Carver MA, on one of
my trips to visit some very good friends in the USA. Whilst there
I bought one of his wonderful Unicorn pictures. On returning home
I decided to check out his website. If anyone has an interest in fantasy art,
this is a site you must visit. Some of you may have seen his artwork already
on some of the "Magic the Gathering" cards or comic book covers ! He has an
outstanding range of work, and much of it is on show, and for sale on his website.
Unicorn Sculptures by Juan Gilberto Hernandez
I was recently sent these
pictures and details of these wonderful 6 foot high sculptures
of unicorn heads, carved by an artist in Puerto Rico called Juan Gilberto Hernandez.
Each piece is around six feet high and two feet across, carved from a tree trunk.
It takes the artist many months of work to create these amazing works of art.
If you wish to know more, you can contact the artist at firstname.lastname@example.org
Pages of Special Merit
This is where I review pages
worthy of special merit each edition.
These are pages I've visited or revisited that have something
unique and original about them, they may really do show that the
author has put a lot of effort into writing and designing the site
or display artwork or stories of exceptional originality.
It's a personal award really, to recognise hard work,
originality, good design or just dedication to Unicorns.
This editions award
of merit goes to someone who I feel has done
more for creating beautiful Unicorn artwork than any other person,
I know it was a
book on Unicorns that got me "hooked" on them years ago
(and don't ask how many please !) but some of the first Unicorn pictures
that really inspired me to do this webpage were by Sue Dawe. She has
consistently created some of the most beautiful, original and charming
pictures I've seen, and I'm certain there are many others that may
agree with this too ! I don't think there is anyone out there that
loves Unicorns that hasn't seen any of her work or does
not know of her exceptional talent. I think she has done
more to inspire other people's love of uncorns
than probably any other artist I know !
So, it's for this that her website is the page of merit this month !
Previous Special Merit Winners and Issue Dates
As usual there are a number
of new sites to look at for this edition
that have been added to the Unicorn links page (which was

ask the question 'Do I spend a lot of time
looking for unicorns sites ?', the answer is YES 8-).

if my computer chair is worn out yet ! OK <grin>
And there are even more links from previous editions on the next page too !

who's building this site has revised it recently,

It is most definitely worth visiting, you won't be disappointed.

Content and Originality
Original work is becoming
rarer, and certainly should be valued. But too many
websites recently though are copying others ideas and then claiming
sole right to it themselves ! They also often use annoying Java code that
stops the right mouse button from working. It's not easy to review pages
easily for mention on this page or bookmark them when half the
browsers functions have been disabled by unfriendly Java code !
really enjoyed this or have any comments, then please sign my Guestbook
to let me know you called so I can pay you a visit too !
Take a peek at my Guestbook to see who else has visited recently
