Yes! It's a Ginsberg Figurine....



Tokyo's Presspop Gallery introduce the 'Ginsberg Doll' we've all been waiting for. Adding Allen to their highly select list of American cultural personalities, Bob Moog & Raymond Scott among the most recent, Presspop enlisted Chicago based illustrator (Sof' Boy) & musician (The Sea and Cake, The Cocktails) Archer Prewitt for the design and we're more than pleasantly surprised! We'll try to keep you posted once it's available since Presspop run very limed editions of everything they do. As with their Raymond Scott figurine, Ginsberg will come with an unreleased recording on 7" vinyl to boot.

  1. If you're feeling particularly generous, pinging me (@chriscardinal on twitter or that at gmail) when this goes for sale would be awesome.

    Cheers!

  4. sad thing about this is as you say limited edition probably very, very expensive and will never be made avaiable to those of us who chose to to by over the net here in New Zealand...only other thing is the should of done Kerouac first.

  5. A Kerouac doll actually did precede the Ginsberg figurine, Anon.
