Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

Somehow, this reminds me of poor Slothrop's circumstances in Gravity's Rainbow.

Oh man. For some reason this article just turned up on my Google alert for links to my blog. Google sent it straight to the spam filter. So I was already in stitches about that when I noticed the title. Thanks for a series of great laughs.
