Twentieth Anniversary Edition of Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas Book

This re-issue of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas was issued on September 17, 2013. This Twentieth Anniversary Edition contains a few new additional illustrations from Tim Burton. Are there enough new illustrations to make it worth owning this if you already have the previous edition? I'm a completist when it comes to my book collection, so I'll happily make room for both on my bookshelf.

Also available at Barnes and Noble.

The Robert Smith Art Doll Everyone is Talking About

One of my idle pastimes is looking up Monster High repaints on eBay, though I don't collect the dolls. It's just a fun way to pass the time while I'm stalling on doing the dishes or vacuuming! Anyway, I was delighted to see this cute Robert Smith art doll today.

"Roberta Smith" was formerly a "Spectra Vondergeist" Monster High Doll. I find it hilarious that the seller has to insist, repeatedly, that the outfit and pants are not removable.
