Two notable events are happening in NYC. The first one is tonight at Mocca there is a zine and comic trading party. For more info go here. The second which I will be sure to attend (thanks blog reader Owen for the suggestion) is Editions/Artist’s Book Fair Nov 1-4 at The Tunnel. For more info go here.
It’s been so exciting these past couple of weeks-I’ve been getting so many books sent to me for review- thanks everyone. One of those surprise packages was from the a really cool company Blue Q. They are the people behind Dirty Girl soap and a whole bunch other great wacky products with really well-designed packaging. They also have a new line of the world’s smallest coffee table books. They send me a whole handful of them but this Labs with Abs really stood out from the bunch. How hilarious is this? Dedicated to Mambo, this little book of drawings by artist Andrew Jeffrey Wright is full of studly dogs in seductive poses. One dog is pouring water out of his dog dish down his muscular stomach, another leans against a fence chewing straw. It’s perfectly bizarre. The book is nicely printed on a bunch of different colors of matte cardstock paper and on the first two pages the drawing is embossed. Pick up a copy of this book here and see more of Blue Q’s products here. I’ll be covering more of their little books in the next couple of weeks.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s Sketchbook Series with Jill Bliss (!!!!).
