Ed McBain from long ago.

Ed McBain from long ago.

The Original Space

We'll work on making this photo larger. But, in the meantime, it was taken on Feb 19, 1993, if we can trust the date stamp in the photo, when he was on tour for "Kiss".The book was published in Nov. of '92. It was the only time we had the honor of hosting him for a siging.

This photograph - the old kind, on photo paper, from a negative, the way it used to work in that stage of visual imagery between charcoal sketches and digital pixels - was taken in the old shop space, before the various shelf expansions and when the alphabet still fit on the single wall. In the top right corner are Steve Allen's books and the As left that wall for the free standing cases a couple of years later.
