Doctor Grordbort's Contrapulatronic Dingus Directory

This is Dr Grordbort's 32 page catalogue that reveals a world where chivalry is not dead, advertising is beautiful, and ray guns look too pretty to be lethal.

Written and illustrated by Weta Workshop conceptual designer Greg Broadmore, the directory showcases dozens of arcane inventions, contraptions and weaponry.

The stars of the show are, of course, Dr. Grordborts Infallible Aether Oscillators, but you will also find the shiniest new bifurnilizers, metal man servants and automated travel loungers.

Also included for your entertainment and scientific education is a compartmentalised picture story (some call them comics) of the world famous naturalist, Lord Cockswain.

The first in a series of three tomes of propaganda. Read the others here:

This book is Fantasmically incredmible with a big dose of Magniflicant! I love the whimsical amusement throughout. Dr G. must have got a big wiff of Martian moon dust before he put this one together!! Well done and a Bargain. Hide.

I work at Weta and I know I am biased, but I always tell people if you can only purchase one item from the Weta Cave, then choose Greg Broadmore's Dingus Directory. The art is beautiful, the contraptions are zany, but it's the totally politically UNcorrect sense of humour that does it for me. How many books do you know that you can't even pronounce the title ?

Scientifically proven to increase your manhood ! Can't wait for the next book Hide.
