The Last Photo

The name is Bond, Elton Bond.

I'm interupting the Halloween hijinx for a moment just to make a special announcement, this is the last photo I'll take for my upcoming book, Rack Toys : Cheap, Crazed Playthings.

While they don't look like much, these Secret Service Sunglasses hold some special meaning to the whole thing.

First, they were sent to me by my pal Jason Lenzi, who also wrote the book's introduction. When Jason and I  first got to know each other, we bonded over our fascination of silly items like this.

Secondly, I remember a pair of these hung forever at the "Checker's Variety" store I worked at as a teen,I mocked them constantly, thinking "who'd want those?". 

Well, future me apparently.

Lastly, I'm done. I mean there is still a few hoops to jump through until I push "send" to the printer but it's all just sniggling details, photo corrections, text edits etc. but the creation of Rack Toys is over. So it's now very real and I couldn't be more excited. Even if 95% of these linger in my garage, I won't regret it.

So 2012 will end with Rack Toys being a thing. Until then, I've created a Facebook page to give looks at not only the book itself but it's crude origins. Please check it out and like it to get updates.

It's been exhausting and it's not even here yet but I'm already planning the next one, I need help....
