The Huashan Creative Park in Taipei housed a Where’s Waldo exhibit last August (I’m a little behind in blogging). Which according to Karmen featured several published books, blow up wall-size works, and many statues. She posted several images on her blog.
Waldo’s adventure began in 1987 when the series’ first book, Where’s Waldo, was published. This book was written and illustrated by Martin Handford and took over two years to complete. Since then Waldo has been published around in the world in more than 25 languages.
- The world record for the largest gathering of people dressed as Waldo is 1,050 and was set at Rutgers University in New Jersey.
- Waldo’s dog is named Woof, he too wears a red and white outfit.
- Waldo goes by many names depending what country the book was released in, the names include: Wally, Charlie, Holger, Hetti and many more.
Do I have time for a shameless plus? I think I do. This isn’t my first blog post to feature the red and white clad character. Card Number 0020 also shines a light on Waldo.
