Two More Sets of Shelves After My Own Heart
First of all, my apologies to Alessio Bogani of Italy, who sent us this photograph for posting on September 12. It somehow got lost in the deluge of congratulatory e-mails, but I found it again while going through recent correspondence in search of material for VW #135's "Letterbox." Sorry to make you wait so long, Alessio! I admire your video shelf!
Alessio also sent along this drawing. He didn't include any annotation about it, so your guess is as good as mine. Perhaps it's a reflection of how overwhelmed he felt by the size of the "Bava beast."
Incidentally, if you happened to send us a photo of yourself and your Bava book and it has somehow failed to materialise here as expected, drop me a line at email@example.com and let me know. If one slipped through the cracks, there may be others.
And here's the wonderfully named Talon Foxmarnick, nine-year-old daughter of Bava book patron Tom Foxmarnick. Talon says: “I love Archie, Lil’ Lulu and MARIO BAVA!!!” -- a new trinity of the arts that gives me renewed hope for the future. You're a lucky girl, Talon... imagine growing up in a household with a bookshelf like that! This photo is also a joy because it gives me (and you) a glimpse into how Tom stores his back issues of VIDEO WATCHDOG -- in the deluxe binders available exclusively from the VW website!
