At BookExpo America 2010, I was thrilled to see a 10x10 foot typewriter in the booth of Abrams Books (to promote the book Monumental: The Reimagined World of Kevin O’Callaghan):
Here it is in Grand Central Terminal’s Vanderbilt Hall,
I contacted the Kevin, hoping there would be an opportunity to borrow/rent his titanic typewriter for a Bill the Boy Wonder promotional event in New York. While oversized cool, the typewriter alone would not be enough.
We’d need a Batman as well. And I knew just the one:
the Batman of the 2009 Retro-Action line of 8-inch dolls,
inspired by the Mego dolls of the 1970s…AKA 68% of my childhood
I didn’t hear back, and no such event materialized, but the vision persists in my mind.
