I wanted to share what has been an educational and enjoyable project for me that started just after the Covid pandemic started. I have, so far, been happy with the results, and your thoughts could be to the contrary, and that’s cool too. I’m just excited that I was able to do what I intended to do.
This pin has really been a labor of love for me and I hope that anyone who has the patience to read this thread and see the pictures will read the book and be inspired to do a project of their own. And it doesn’t even have to be a pinball project!
When I was in elementary school I was looking for a book to read and the librarian suggested the Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster with illustrations by Jules Feiffer. Since that time it has become my favorite children’s book, full of amazing characters, fantasy and lessons to be learned. The flowing yet scratchy drawings and elaborate map by Mr. Feiffer added so much to the story left such an impression on me that I HAD to honor their work with a pinball. I decided that the playfield would be the map of the Kingdom of Knowledge shown at the beginning of the book.
