Fantagraphics’ Eric Reynolds shows off the publisher’s new store as it’s being worked on, and reveals the opening date and lineup:
As you can see, the walls are still a bit spare, but we are working hard (well, mostly Jacob Covey is working hard) to fill up the space. For example, in the third photo above, we mostly just have a few random posters and prints up on the wall temporarily, until the final signage is ready… All of this is happening with our Dec. 2nd GRAND OPENING in mind. Look for more news soon regarding that, which will include an inaugural art show and signing in our own space (essentially a smaller version of the acclaimed show that just closed at New York’s Society of Illustrators), featuring Peter Bagge, Jim Woodring, Jim Blanchard, Ellen Forney, and many more, as well as an exhibition at the neighboring Belle & Wissel Gallery, featuring original artwork from Jacob Covey’s forthcoming BEASTS! book. It’s going to be a great weekend, so we hope all of you in the Great Northwest will mark your calendars.
