Marshall Field's Christmas Windows 2003Many thanks to my cousin Jenny for sending me photos of Marshall Field’s 2003 “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” Christmas windows. I like the designs of some of the characters – the Oompa-Loompas in space helmets, especially – but overall I think I’m more a fan of the Shindelman illustrations for this particular book. Some of the windows look oddly bare to me too. (They couldn’t throw a couple two-dimensional squirrel cutouts in the Nut Room?) Thanks again, Jenny!

  1. Those were cute. Did you notice the weirdness with the typesetting on the windows? It looks like someone came along and peeled off letters, and insome places pasted wrong-sized letters and punctuation.

  2. Yeah, I thought “Mik” Teevee was particularly glaring… I wonder if it was vandals or the guys doing the windows were just illiterate.
