LONDON (AP) – The royal love story has been chronicled in speech bubbles and sketches.

A comic book telling the story of Prince William and Kate Middleton's romance is due to be published in April, joining a host of other books and memorabilia flooding the market ahead of the April 29 royal wedding.

“There's always been a tradition in this country of comics for girls in which the girl dreams of meeting someone famous and falling in love,” said Mike Collins, the artist who did the illustrations for Kate and William: A Very Public Love Story.

"In this case, this is what's happened and it's for real,” he said.

The graphic novel will be published in two editions: The first follows the prince's life from the rugby pitches of his exclusive boarding school to his adventures in the Royal Air Force, while the other traces Middleton's half of the story with cheeky fictional diary entries that imagine her as a love-struck student who later comes to terms with the ups and downs of being a future king's girlfriend.

The two halves will come together in a collected bound edition that's presented as a flip book and includes a fictional account of the wedding day (and a kiss, too.)

The couple make a good looking comic book superhero and heroine, Collins said.

“She's got this flowing hair that's really lovely to draw, and he's got a very distinguished face,” he said.

Rich Johnston, who wrote the script, said he didn't think William and his fiancee would mind having their love story chronicled in speech bubbles and cartoons.

“It's better than seeing themselves on a plate,” he joked, referring to the many commemorative china items on sale.

A U.S. publishing house has also announced a rival to the comic, also to be published in April.

WESTHAMPTON, N.Y. – As the countdown continues to Super Bowl XLV, Grey Flannel Auctions has released its own Super Bowl-related news.

50 years along, Berenstain Bears franchise a family affair

PDF Print E-mail
Written by JOANN LOVIGLIO, Associated Press   
Tuesday, 01 February 2011 08:09
On original illustration for the a Berenstain Bears book. Image courtesy of LiveAuctioneers Archive and The House in the Woods Auction Gallery. SOLEBURY, Pa. (AP) – A recent venture into his mother's basement became a Bear Country moment for Mike Berenstain.

Beyond the shelves of sketches and correspondence from hundreds of his parents' beloved Berenstain Bears books, he found furniture, kitchen appliances and other odds and ends. Why, he gently teased his mother in their studio recently, was she holding onto old stereo consoles and antique toasters?

“It's like the book where Mama Bear has a trunk full of what she calls ‘valuable junk,’” Jan Berenstain replied with a laugh. “If it worked, I held onto it.”

It's just one example of the connection between art and life in the Berenstain den.

Nearly 50 years after the Berenstain Bears first charmed preschoolers and their parents, the lovable ursine clan remain as close to its Bear Country roots as the Berenstain children remain to the books bearing its family name.

Stan and Jan Berenstain created hundreds of books until Stan Berenstain's death in 2005 at the age of 82. Mike Berenstain, the couple's son, now collaborates with his mother in writing and illustrating new books at the same studio in an idyllic part of Bucks County, outside Philadelphia, that serves as inspiration for the books' setting.

The gentle stories of Mama Bear, Papa Bear, Brother Bear and Sister Bear, as always, are inspired by the Berenstain family – first from the children and now the grandchildren.

“We remain relentlessly focused on the family relationship. There isn't one character who's the star of any of the books,” Mike Berenstain said.

Mike Berenstain, 51, started collaborating in the late 1980s on the books with his parents after creating about 30 of his own children's books.

“Their greatest popularity was in the ’80s, and now those kids are having children of their own,” he said. “Bad economic times also make people want to have more family-oriented time together.”

The bears are venturing further afield nowadays, with an interactive website, toys, computer games, TV shows, a touring stage musical, a children's museum exhibit and an iPhone app. A movie by Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy is in the script phase and has a tentative release date of 2012, the 50th anniversary of the first Berenstain Bears book.

The books have tackled modern subjects such as online safety and childhood obesity, and the bears – or their human helpers – answer children's e-mails and letters, but the goal is to tell enduring, universal stories. Perennial favorites cover challenges of getting kids to doing chores, defuse fears of the first day of school and teach values of kindness and generosity.

“They say jokes don't travel well, but family humor does,” said Jan Berenstain, 87, who works in her studio daily. “Family values is what we're all about.”

Stan and Jan Berenstain, both Philadelphia natives, were 18 when they met on their first day at art school in 1941. They married five years later and had two sons. The elder, writer Leo Berenstain, is involved with the business end of the family franchise.

Before their family of bear books was born, the young couple built a successful career. A cartoon series they produced called All in the Family ran in McCall's and Good Housekeeping magazines for 35 years, and their art appeared in magazines including Collier's and The Saturday Evening Post.

The first Berenstain Bears book, The Big Honey Hunt, was published in 1962. Over the years, more than 300 titles have been released in 23 languages – most recently in Arabic and Icelandic – touching on topics from patience to pollution and becoming a rite of passage for generations of young readers.

About 260 million copies of Berenstain Bears books have been held in the hands of children and their parents since their earliest books were published with the help of Theodor Geisel, a children's books editor at Random House better known as Dr. Seuss.

“He was a tough editor, but we learned a lot from him,” Jan Berenstain said. Geisel's critiques, which the family still has in its large archives, mince no words: “When weak rhymes are used to the extent these are, the reader feels he's stuck in a rut” is a typical remark.

Geisel also advised the Berenstains to change characters. “There are too many bears. ... They'll be a millstone around your neck,” Jan Berenstain recalled with a laugh.

The couple began working on their second book – this time with penguins – but took an about-face after Honey Hunt became a hit. The Berenstains' current publisher, HarperCollins, plans to release the unpublished Nothing Ever Happens at the South Pole next year along with several new Berenstain Bears books in the works.

“It's wonderful to do something you love for so many years,” Jan Berenstain said. “Not everyone has that.”

Beatles memorabilia display opens early in Kansas

N.Y. lawmakers call for 9/11 commemorative coin crackdown

Licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported license. NEW YORK (AP) – Two New York lawmakers called Monday for a crackdown on a company that is selling Sept. 11 commemorative coins supposedly containing silver from ground zero.

U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer and U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, both Democrats, said Port Chester, N.Y.-based National Collector's Mint is “profiteering off a national tragedy” by advertising its coins as an authorized memento of the World Trade Center attacks.

“With the 10th anniversary of 9/11 approaching, we should unfortunately expect more scams, as criminals and snake oil salesmen seek to profit from the deep emotional connection that millions of Americans have to that terrible tragedy,” Nadler said.

Schumer and Nadler called on the Federal Trade Commission to stop National Collector's Mint from selling the Sept. 11 coins and to investigate the company's marketing practices.

National Collector's Mint President Avram Freedberg said in a statement that the company has donated over $2 million to various Sept. 11 charities. “We are proud of our contributions,” he said.

The company website says, as did Freedberg, that the coins are clad in silver “recovered from the vaults beneath the ashes of Ground Zero,” a claim that Schumer and Nadler said cannot be substantiated. In addition, the website says, the coins are “Liberian government authorized legal tender coin.”

A law passed in July creates an official Sept. 11 medal that benefits the National September 11 Memorial & Museum being built at the World Trade Center site.

Schumer and Nadler said the sale of National Collector's Mint's $29.95 coins could deprive the museum of millions of dollars in funds raised from the sale of the official medals.

Memorial spokesman Michael Frazier said the National Collector's Mint's coin “will in no way help maintain a national tribute to the 9/11 victims and heroes.”

National Collector's Mint ran afoul of the law in 2004 when it issued a “Freedom Tower Silver Dollar” that it asserted was “legally authorized government issue.” The company was charged with fraud and forced to pay more than $2 million in refunds and cancellations.

Skateboard art exhibit gets rolling at Arizona museum

(AP) – As long as skateboards have been around, kids have been covering them in stickers and drawing on them with markers.

Maybe that's why a Chandler art show full of skate decks seems to strike a chord with all ages.

“People are excited about it. People have fond memories of skateboarding as kids, and it just kind of brings back that childhood joy we'd all like to tap back into,” said Eric Faulhaber, visual arts coordinator at Vision Gallery where patrons dropping by this week have been eager to see the gallery's next show.

Full Deck: A Short History of Skate Art opened last week at Vision. An anthology of skate art from the 1960s to the present, the show includes almost 300 decks borrowed from pro skaters, skateboarding companies and artists across the country.

Skate art graphics “tend to be extremely vivid and extremely personal, and many of them have some strong social, political or economic component,” Faulhaber told the East Valley Tribune. “(Skateboards) have always been a really good mode of self expression for the person using them.”

Among the decks, you'll see the usual skulls, dragons and monsters, but there are also some unexpected faces: Johnny Cash, Sitting Bull, Batman and Hillary Clinton. Elmo, with his arm in a sling, the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz, and a half-octopus pirate baby coddled by a mermaid mother also make appearances.

On other boards, peaceful nature scenes recall vintage national parks posters.

Full Deck also includes a display of about 25 early wood and aluminum boards circa 1960 and a 1920s or 1930s-era rudimentary skateboard prototype.

Lenders to the show include pro skaters Corey Duffel, Mark Gonzales, Obi Kaufman, John Lucero and Lance Mountain, and Skip Engblom, the Zephyr skate shop co-founder profiled in the movie Lords of Dogtown.

The exhibition was curated at the Bedford Gallery at Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek, Calif. It is traveling to museums, galleries and universities across North America.

Elvis plaque has left the building, pulled from auction

PITTSBURGH (AP) – A group of Elvis Presley fans are saying “Thank you, thank you very much” after a plaque commemorating three concerts at Pittsburgh's former Civic Arena was pulled from a memorabilia auction.

The building last known as Mellon Arena closed last summer just before Consol Energy Center opened across the street as the new home of the Pittsburgh Penguins and the city's largest enclosed concert venue.

Priscilla Parker, president of the We Remember Elvis Fan Club, tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review her friends didn't want the plaque auctioned off with other arena memorabilia. The city-county Sports & Exhibition Authority owns the arena and agreed to donate the plaque to the Senator John Heinz History Center.

The plaque was installed on Presley's birthday in 1982.

Beatlemania at fever pitch as collector opens museum in Buenos Aires

Tuesday, 18 January 2011 08:29
Ringo, Paul, John and George as they appeared on a one-sheet card published circa 1967. Image courtesy of LiveAuctioneers archive and Alexander Autographs Inc. BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) – A brick from the Cavern Club, a check for 11 pounds signed by Ringo Starr, an “authentic” Beatles wig. These and thousands of other objects related to the “Fab Four” are luring Beatles fans to a new museum in Buenos Aires.

The museum is the product of the particular “Beatlemania” obsession of Rodolfo Vazquez, a 53-year-old accountant who became a fan at the age of 10 when he got their Rubber Soul record. "With the song In My Life I fell in love with the Beatles," he said.

Vazquez scooped up all the memorabilia he could find in Buenos Aires about history's most famous rock band, an obsession that grew until he made it into Guinness World Records in 2001 as having the planet's largest collection.

At that point, Guinness noted that he had 5,612 items in the attic of his home in Buenos Aires. His hoard has grown to more than 8,500 records, gadgets, puppets and games since then, more than 2,200 of which are on display in the Beatle Museum that just opened this month on Avenue Corrientes, in an area of the capital where tourists throng.

There are Beatles museums in Liverpool, England and Hamburg, Germany, that display memorabilia along with objects from the band members' lives, and other private collections as well – Julian Lennon has many that show the more personal side of the four band members, published in the book Beatles Memorabilia. The collection of Julian Lennon, including drawings his late father sent him when the Beatles were on tour.

But this storefront museum stands out for the sheer quantity of pieces, carefully arranged in display cases and on the walls. There are objects for all tastes: a box of condoms with the name of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, a wig that says it adjusts to any head size, and signed pictures of the four musicians.

"The idea is to show my collection permanently. In a year I would like to rotate the items on display with others from my collection," Vazquez said. "Otherwise all of it would be closed into boxes and trunks without anyone being able to enjoy them.”

Vazquez also keeps accumulating objects, either buying or trading for them with other collectors around the world.

“In Britain and Spain I found many fans. By mail I've received things from Japan, Britain and Brazil, and I'm still doing it,” he said.

The Beatles broke up in 1970, but there's no letup in interest about the band: When their song list was added to iTunes late last year, more than 2 million individual songs and 450,000 copies of Beatles albums were sold in the first week.

The Beatles never performed in Argentina, but people here seem to have a soft spot for them, ensuring that cover bands have regular gigs. Many such bands play in Vazquez's The Cavern Club, a bar next to the museum named after the Liverpool nightclub where the band got its start.

Each year, Vazquez organizes a “Beatle Week,” in which cover bands from around Latin America compete to be named the best imitators. The winners travel to a Liverpool music festival.

Vazquez claims he doesn't know the total value of his private collection, which also includes record covers, autographs, toys, original pictures, concert programs, and cups and plates with Beatle images.

Vazquez said that he has a special fondness for 64 boxes of chewing gum in the form of miniature albums that allude to the 16 Beatles records.

Other rarities are four music boxes with figures of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.

Vazquez even has certified copies of their birth certificates.

In one display case, there's a brick – one of about 5,000 pulled from the demolition in 1983 of the original Cavern Club.

There's also a hunk of the stage of Hamburg's Star Club, a strip club where the musicians worked as the house band, at that point with Pete Best as drummer. A pair of drumsticks signed by Best, who was replaced by Ringo Star in 1962, is in the Buenos Aires museum.

There's also a piece of the floor of Strawberry Fields, a Salvation Army orphanage near Lennon's boyhood home whose name inspired the 1967 psychedelic rock tune Strawberry Fields Forever.

Vazquez said nearly 2,000 people have visited since the museum opened on Jan. 3. Some have been thrilled.

“This museum is killing me,” said Facundo Gonzalez, an Argentine visitor. “I want to steal everything and scream like a little girl. I am very excited. I find it incredible.”

Dalton Araujo, a Brazilian, said he traveled to Argentina specifically to visit the museum.

Getting the chance to show his treasures to fellow fans is immensely satisfying to Vazquez, but he says there's one thing he hasn't been able to do: meet the surviving Beatles themselves.

“What I am missing is to shake hands with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, hug them and chat with them a little bit,” he said.

“It is what would complete me and I would be the happiest collector on earth.”

Royal Wedding Watch: Unusual mug generates attention for UK retailer

King Edward VII moustache mug, manufactured in 1901 by Belleek China, Northern Ireland, to commemorate the Coronation of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra. Image courtesy of Church's China. NORTHAMPTON, England (PRWEB) - As Royal Wedding excitement grows, companies are launching all sorts of items to memorialize the big day, from Royal Wedding toy sets to commemorative china. Church’s China, including its Internet sales division the U.K. Gift Company, has seen it all many times before. The company has been retailing up-market Royal commemoratives for more than 150 years.

In homage to its heritage and the legacy of the Royal Family, the company maintains a small archive of antique Royal Commemoratives that date back to the Victorian age. In the wake of Royal Wedding fever, one piece in the collection has become something of a celebrity.

The King Edward VII Moustache Mug, manufactured in 1901 by Belleek China in Northern Ireland to commemorate the Coronation of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, is Church's oldest and most unique collectible. In recent weeks, it has appeared on the BBC network and regional news stations throughout the United Kingdom. according to Church's China managing director Stephen Church, the media attention has generated many offers to purchase the item, including inquiries from the U.S. the item is not for sale, Church adds.

Why all this excitement over a mug? Once seen as an essential household item, moustache mugs are now highly sought-after antiques. because the King Edward VII Moustache Mug is a rare Royal Commemorative, it is even more coveted by collectors.

Church explained, "when this piece was made, it was very functional. it enabled Victorian gentlemen with their huge bushy moustaches to partake of their afternoon cup of tea without ending up with soggy, stained whiskers. Now it is quite a novelty."

Church's China Managing Director Stephen Church shows off the coveted King Edward VII Moustache Mug, a piece that has become somewhat of a celebrity in the wake of Royal Wedding fever.

Moustache mugs have a special ledge across the top, referred to in Victorian days as a moustache guard. the moustache guard has a semicircle opening against the side of the cup, enabling a gentleman's moustache to remain dry while he sips his tea through the opening. They were very popular in Britain and the U.S through the turn of the century but as the Roaring 20s took hold, moustaches fell out of fashion and, alas, so did the moustache mug.

Church added that Royal Wedding memorabilia items are very popular with collectors because they tend to gain value over time, particularly if they are part of a limited edition collection or they become very uncommon. Church said, "I often find myself pondering what piece from the 2011 Royal Wedding will be the stand-out in a hundred years' time."
