A Treat for Aparo Fans
Once upon a time, I thought that I was pretty much the biggest Jim Aparo fan in the world. That was until 5 or 6 years ago, when I (inter)met my good friend Michael from Alabama. He once ran an old school Jim Aparo Fan Club and published a newsletter. He was lucky enough to correspond (and even meet) with Jim several times over the years. This, combined with his passion for all things Aparo, gives Michael an incredible wealth of knowledge and material for his newish blog: http://jimaparofanclub.blogspot.com/ . Michael speaks to every subject, right down to the quality of Aparo's lettering, and is not afraid to showcase a lot of his lesser known Charlton work. It makes for a great read, and it shines a much deserved spotlight on this fine creator who is dearly missed. Great work, MWG!
