Fun With Photos (Or What I Do When I’ve Nothing to Post)
There is no rule out there saying that I absolutely must post at all times, every single day of the year, rain or shine or sleet or snow. However, I admit to feeling a little guilty when I cannot provide you with consistently interesting information, dear readers. So it is that we’re having Photo Day. Photo Day is when I find that, for one reason or another, I’ve nothing to post but I DO have a couple interesting photos lurking about the place from my personal collection. For example:
I call this one The Untimely Hypnotizing of Art Spiegelman
As you can see my lovely assistant Francoise Mouly is watching with amusement as I cast my spell over the beloved graphic novelist. Note how his pupils have dilated to tiny specks.
This one is of Jon Scieszka "helping" Monica Edinger of the blog Educating Alice with her books at BEA.
In case you missed it, Monica’s recent sale of her book to Candlewick was announced in the last PW Children’s Bookshelf. To be blogged . . .
Here’s a shot of when the conservation crew of NYPL took the original Winnie-the-Pooh toys away from Donnell. Note the fate of Eeyore and the conservationist’s cool derby.
That’s all I could conjur up at the moment. More in the future . . .
