Dan Greenfield, a Reporter over at the always amazing 13th DIMENSION website, recently interviewed Chip Kidd about his obsession with collecting Batman toys and memorabilia. This “sickness” started at age 2 and has followed him his whole life.
Chip has actually written a few Batman-related books with some of them having a major focus on toy collecting, “Batman Collected” and “Bat-Manga: The Secret History of Batman in Japan”. He also co-wrote a book on “BATMAN: The Animated Series” with Paul Dini which features a giant assortment of toy photos as well.
Dan and Chip talk extensively about the character and all the fun artifacts that have revolved around the Caped Crusader. The article is also loaded with a lot of wonderful photos that were shot at Chip’s NYC apartment (We didn’t have space to share them all here). Some of these toys are so extremely cool and rare that they will totally make you cry, ha! Please CLICK HERE to check ’em out! Also, thanks Dan for a wonderful interview, well done Sir!
