Baum Birthday Bash!

In honor of L. Frank Baum's birthday on May 15th, Oz Club member Jane Albright is asking Oz fans/collectors/enthusiasts to take a photo of themselves that day showing how they enjoy Oz - then send it to IWOCEvent@aol.com. These photos will be used in a musical slideshow at the Oz Convention this summer in Banner Elk, NC (info here). Jane is looking for as much variety as possible, showing Ozzy crafts, gardens, clothing, vehicles, etc....so be creative! Here's one for me - it's pretty straightforward and a little early, but might as well get the ball rolling.  Remember, the idea is to take the photo on the day (May 15). It's a fun idea!

Looks great, Bill! And is that original art from Denslow's Mother Goose I see behind your head??!!

I wish it were! Actually it's an advertising piece for Denslow's Mother Goose. It repeats the book cover design and folds in half, with descriptive information on the interior. I have it framed with glass on the back so both sides can be seen.
