Perry Library "Project G" is a Go (Go Godzilla!)

On Godzilla's 55th birthday, Andy and I descended upon the Perry Public Library ready to unveil the "G-Mazing Collection." We had a great time putting everything in place and watching the reaction of kids who happened to be wandering by at the time (not to mention their parents).

Our first step was to remove the former collection's background, which didn't take long. Then we posted carefully selected G-FAN covers and artwork as the background. The effect was quite striking and would be a great display all on its own!

Then Andy began placing his figures on the glass shelves. With only a few hints from Dad, he did a great job with spacing and balance, and got things looking just right. We also agreed on a high visibility spot for our Kenji Sahara photograph and signature.

We had so many leftover copies of G-FAN covers and artwork that we gave the rest to Ms. Kara Cervelli, the children's librarian--so if you stop by the exhibit, ask for your own mini-poster souvenir!

We plan to do a full write-up of our experience and submit it, along with some great photos, to G-FAN Magazine. We will post some more shots of the finished display in the near future, too. If you have the opportunity, please stop by and take a look, and let us know what you think by leaving us a comment here!
The Perry Public Library is located at 3753 Main Street, Perry, Ohio 44081.


  1. The display is amazing. It is colorfully striking and the variety of figures and their placement is very impressive. The Kenji Sahara autograph is priceless. Great job guys.

  2. Looks cool. Plus I love the pics for the G-FAN covers and posters which you chose to use to have as background. Especialy the picking of the G2KUSA and G2 posters. Awesome. Can't wait to see the finished look!

  3. Happy Birthday Godzilla! When people think of Japan they think of you, even though you technically aren't from Japan but just come to visit once in awhile to destroy or save it.

    That is one slick display!
