Photos of the Little Golden Book Exhibit at the Arkansas State Capitol

The people at the Arkansas Secretary of State have generously sent me a bunch of photos of the Little Golden Book exhibit to which I contributed images of original Golden Book Catalogs and foreign Alice in Wonderland editions.  I encourage anyone who lives nearby or is planning a trip that passes through Little Rock, AR to stop by the exhibit.

I don't usually do this on my blog, but the art in this book looks stunning.  Please check out the Kickstarter campaign and if you are so inclined, back it!

While not earth-shattering in the grand scheme of things, I did receive news this week that surprised me:  The Walt Disney Classics Collection is no more.  In a nutshell here's what happened.  Late last year (2012) Enesco announced they would not be renewing its license for WDCC and that the license would go to another vendor.  In early 2013 it was announced that PMI (that's Precious Moments Inc) had acquired the license.  This was met with skepticism by the WDCC community, but when some images 'leaked' of some proposed figures (see below), the internets exploded.

While I do have a few WDCC, I can say that it is not a focus of my collection, but even I have to say these look pretty bad.  Anyway, PMI stated that these were only mockups and not production figures, but lo and behold these were later released under the Disney Showcase imprint.  Then this past week PMI announced on their Facebook page that they and Disney had jointly decided to not move forward with the WDCC line.
Meaning, WDCC is dead and gone.  It may resurface one day, but I doubt it.

SDCC Cosplay Photos

So my friend who was house sitting for us while we were at SDCC asked only one thing in return:  take lots of photos of babes in superhero costumes.  Who am I to deny such a simple request.
