Faire Play Recurve Bow Now on Shapeways!

Here it is, folks! I’ve redesigned the Faire Play recurve bow so that people without access to 3D printers can get one on Shapeways.

Just click here and Shapeways will happily print you a bow and quiver on one of their industrial-sized dream-making machines.

In her youth, Barbara Millicent Roberts (“Barbie” to the world at large) passed through a phase where she adorned her handwritten i’s with a little heart instead of a dot. By the time she completed astronaut training she had outgrown such frippery, and besides it caused too much consternation among the top brass and crew-cut stiffs at Mission Control.

She retained a secret, unprofessional fondness for the motif, and every now and then, when she wasn’t vaccinating pets, transplanting hearts, or busting perps in back alleys, she’d sketch a heart or two on a cocktail napkin and wonder how her life would have been different if she’d remained a hearter of i’s.
