This new sixth-scale Hot Toys figure, available through Sideshow Collectibles, features a great look at the character, but not just because it possesses Affleck’s signature square jaw and 5 o’clock shadow. This Batman comes in an armored variety, because when you’re going up against the Kryptonian God known to mere mortals as Superman, you’re going to need a better Batsuit. While it remains to be seen just who will get the upper hand when Batman v Superman makes its way into theaters in a few short weeks, soon you can re-enact your own confrontation with Armored Batman, available for $249. 99. Check out the images,... The epic confrontation between Batman and Superman will finally hit the silver screen this March in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Sideshow and Hot Toys are very excited to present the sixth scale collectible figure of Armored Batman.
Our Bright Young Booksellers series continues today with Jennifer Ebrey, a Junior Cataloger in the Rare Books & Manuscripts Department at Bonhams, London:. I’m a Junior Cataloguer in the Books & Manuscripts Department. I’m still relatively new to the department, so I haven’t yet developed a specialist area, but there are so many things I get enthusiastic about: iconic modern firsts, wonderfully quirky limited editions and delightfully curious and charming... It’ll depend on where exactly we are in the sale’s calendar, but I tend to spend the majority of my day cataloguing and collating and offering valuations. I’ve also tried to incorporate social media in to the department, so I try to make time every day to share something (hopefully) witty or interesting on Twitter and Instagram. How did you get started in rare books. Although I’ve loved books ever since I was old enough to read and I chose to study literature at university, I wasn’t sure if I would ever have a career that would let me utilise my passion for books. I originally started in the Collections Department at New Bond Street, which was absolutely fascinating - I.
From New York to the Monon and from east to west. Artist, designer and “visual poet” Walter Knabe has moved his studio from the Indiana Design Center to 1134 E. 54th St. near the Monon. Prior to Carmel, Knabe had worked for years in New York City creating his hand-printed wallpaper and fabrics, artwork and accessories. “He’s fabulous,” says resale dealer Kim Lohr who with her husband Marc Lohr have moved their vintage shop from the east side of the Monon to 5335 Winthrop Ave. Big time artist and designer,” says Lohr. She is one of the seven dealers who have opened Vintage 54 Collective in the same building which once housed Hughey Hartman Upholstery, then an antique mall, then closed. Most of the mall’s dealers moved east across the Monon to form SoBro Vintage. SoBro has split and several of the dealers have moved back to Winthrop Avenue into the newly rejuvenated building. It’s now called the Barrel Building because the new owner, Custom Living, a home renovation company, took out the upper ceiling and exposed the trusses and barrel roof. Vintage 54 has seven dealer-owners in the renovated basement. We have a more curated feel,” says Lohr. Among the finds spotted recently was a mid-century modern desk designed by Paul McCobb for Winchendon Furniture Co. The desk is part of the Planner Group and comes with a mid-century chair designed for Conant Ball by noted designer Russel Wright.
