I'm a Fan of the Wall of Video Cameras

A quick update on The Boring Store. You may recall a February 2nd piece I wrote on it, explaining how it's a front for 826Chicago.

Well, it's just opened up, and it's a doozy. Looky.

They appear to be taking their cues from the Lemony Snicket Playbook.

You can see why I like it.

Thanks for this post, Betsy. I love 826 and wish they had a Philadelphia workshop.
As for the artist, I'd have to guess Chris Ware based on the typography, tone, and location of the store, but the actual drawing of the guy is throwing me off a bit.
I can't wait for 826LA's time travel convenience store to open. I contributed a time traveler customs form, and I'm anxious to see what they do with it.

The Boring Store. Love it. Sounds like it should have been a stop for Milo in Phantom Tollbooth, maybe in the suburbs of the Doldrums? Especially with that inspiring, I mean, dull sign.
