New Books

POSTED BY: ADMIN


It's so fun when the book order arrives at the shop. Here are a few new titles. If you can't read them, they are: Alphabet in Color, watercolors based on Vladimir Nabokov's bout with synesthesia (which I have a mild touch of, so this is very delightful); Jordan Crane's The Clouds Above; a little illustrated volume called Recidivist; the latest Chris Ware Acme Novelty book; Jill Bliss' Treelets; an anthology by Fantagraphics called Mome; poster art by Jay Ryan of the Bird Machine; Night Fisher by Brooklynite R. Kikuo Johnson; Pictures and Words, more comic art goodness; and Fevolution, a gorgeous collection of the art of Feric, or Eric Feng, currently seen in some hip streetwear/shoe ads, among other places. This is sort of the illustrator/comic art section, for today.

Jill Bliss also sent some new notecard sets, and lovely T-shirts with her flower illustrations. They are very cheery on a grey day.

And - the holidays were a busy tag-making season, and I am guessing that Valentine's will be as well. Here are some tags to give you ideas - customize your own for your sweetie this year. All are fine silver on a sterling silver ball chain, and are $45. E-mail us to order for now, we'll add it to the web store soon.
