As my little photo essay was posted today as this week’s entry in Robot 6‘s “Show Us Your Shelf Porn”series I assume we will have a few new visitors stopping by after following the link in my entry. Welcome,welcome. Always happy to have a few new eyeballs to share my ramblings and images as I work on examining why and how I collect comic books.
The essay on Robot 6 featured all new photos and thoughts,but you can find more of the same here on the blog. To get an introductory taste you can visit my About page or check out my very first entry for a sort of mission statement. If you’d like to see more photos of my library,especially earlier tours before “the great weeding”check out the shelf porn category.
As for me,as it says various places I am a librarian and graphic designer. I currently work during the day as the Digital Resources Librarian at the Flaxman Library at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In the evening I do graphic design for TwoMorrows Publishing,mainly laying out Roy Thomas’Alter Ego eight times a year. And on the weekend,after a long absence,I do a little improv around the north side of Chicago. I’ve been reading and buying comics for far too long.
I try to do a little writing here once a week and share little things between entries. So feel free to look around,check things out,and start any conversations you may want to. Thanks for coming!
