The Santa Claus Revolution?

It appears news of Richard's book has reached even the ears of the Jolly Old Elf, for his Portland, Oregon incarnation has a very familiar accessory at hand. Please disregard the unfortunate man-bun on the big guy.




Of course, Santa's no stranger to these classics. Maybe thanks to The Typewriter Revolution, a few more will wind up under the tree this year?
