A few weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of reviewing a new release which explores the collectible culture of “cute”. …And maybe exploits the rise of cute in contemporary culture. But in a good way — I swear. Entitled Hello, Cutie!: Adventures in Cute Culture, the book was not only charming but so engaging that I just had to interview its author, Pamela Klaffke.
"This ridiculously large (six inches long) clear plastic clothespin is a vintage office or desk accessory. You can open the clothespin, place mail or papers in the opening, and then close it to hold the paperwork in place. On top, there’s a chrome or shiny silver-tone pen or pencil holder on a swivel base that allows you to set and move the direction of the writing piece. The whole piece is so chunky and heavy, that it’s a paperweight too."
Parker Brothers released The Muppet Show Game, game number 165, in 1977. This board game not only features many of the most iconic characters from the television show it is based upon, but because it was an early release in the show’s five year run, it has a few characters which are rather obscure.
"In Hello, Cutie!: Adventures in Cute Culture, Pamela Klaffke explores the cute phenomenon which many feel is exploding in our culture right now. From food, edible or inedible, to fashion, baby animals, and comics, Hello, Cutie! covers cute, vintage and contemporary. But primarily, Hello, Cutie! is a book about cute collectibles themselves and those who make and collect the cute as well."
