Michael Mulvey at Noe Valley

POSTED BY: ELLIE WILLIAMS

Did you know that a group of goldfish is called a troubling? And a group of giraffes is called a tower? What about a group of jellyfish? That would be a smack. Local designer and illustrator Michael Mulvey compiled these linguistic oddities into a book, Gulps, Prides & Zeals which combines curious animal group names with Mulvey's beautifully intricate illustrations. 

Rare Device is thrilled to be hosting Michael Mulvey for a reading of his book at our Noe Valley shop on Thursday, October 30 at 10:30am. Come see Michael's stunning illustrations in person and finally learn what you're actually supposed to be calling a group of butterflies.  4071 24th Street @ Castro.
