TO B OR NOT TO B.I.B ?
That is the question. This is the…
QUESTION MARKER - Got this marker last saturday from DIET ONE. He picked this up at Tokyu Hands 3 years ago. It’s only a matter of time before I scour that place for gems myself. This became an instant TOP 10 of my marker collection as soon as I saw it. Nice box packaging with that rising M in the magic ink wordmark. Nice yellow black white color combo throughout. And that question mark element seals the deal. Because I can’ t read Japanese. So I am like “what?where?when?how?why?” is this marker ? Look top down, side views, all angles of the box packaging, and every detail is meant to there, serves a purpose, and just looks good. Even the cardboard fray amongst the edges. Even the Tokyu Hands price tag.
Then you pop the box open and its a mini glass barrel metal tip marker ? Yikes. Dangerous. I don’t know any other company making glass barrel markers for the current market, so this is definitely a special piece. I am sure i’ll enjoy it just as much, if not more, 50 years from now. Classic.
The obsessive multiples guy in me will probably buy a huge lot of these before the year ends.
