Moulin Initiation Device

Designed for use by secret organizations as part of initiation ceremonies, a new applicant would be blind folded and placed atop this device. The new member would then be required to initiate the device by pulling on the handles, where upon they would be simultaneously given an electrical shock and spanked with a paddle. Welcome to the club and don't forget to pay your dues. The patent was issued in 1900 to Edmund De Moulin and Ulysses S. De Moulin.

About Our Paper
We print on mould-made 100% cotton rag, acid-free archival papers or heavyweight Exhibition Gallery Canvas. Each print is inspected before shipping. Sizes are in inches.

All of our prints come with a margin: 8.5x11 and 11x17 prints have .50-inch margins; 19x13 prints have 1-inch margins; 22x17 prints have 1.5 inch margins; 30x24 Special Edition and 47x34 Magnum prints have 2-inch margins. Canvas prints have slightly wider margins for stretching. If an image's dimensions do not exactly match the paper's dimensions there will be a wider margin along the narrowest side.
