THIS WEEKEND August 2&3, RIPExpo!!! Providence! I also released a new little book collecting all the LAIDAD comics! You can get it online now or pick it up from me at RIPexpo or even SPX come september. YOUR CHOICE! Go nuts.
Alright, alright party people, we’re gonna give you about 48 hours to work your SDCC hangover before we UNLEASH HELL. Fair warning!
And by HELL I mostly mean polite entreaties to join us for SPX 2014 - and the debut of EMILY CARROLL’s SUPER-DUPER DEF poster for the show!
Here’s a look at Eleanor Davis’s 2014 SPX library gift bookplate. We’re so thankful to Eleanor for creating this great piece and LIKEWISE grateful that she’ll join us as a special guest at SPX in just a few short weeks.
That’s another way of saying what the heck are you doing the weekend of September 13? If it ain’t SPX you’re missin’ out!
I never get tired of seeing this Kali print cross my dash. We’re getting quite close to announcing the 2014 recipient of the library gift program.
Small Press Expo Announces the DC Public Library as the 2013 Recipient of the SPX Graphic Novel Gift Program
Just in case you missed the news this morning, the Small Press Expo announced our 2013 Graphic Novel Gift Program recipient — the DC library system!
If you attend SPX last year it was - YES, YOU - who enabled us to put over 200 graphic novels from independent publishers into the DC public library system this very week, and for that we are truly grateful.
This is the third year for the program which has previously benefitted the Montgomery County Library System and Baltimore’s Enoch Pratt Library.
Each book, as selected by the library collection staff, includes a bookplate noting that the volume is a donation of the Small Press Expo.
I am so excited debut the 2013 bookplate design by the incredible Kali Ciesemier. Kali was such a wonderful presence at SPX last year and we’re happy to welcome her back. A million thanks for her contribution of her time and considerable talent to support this program.
PRINTS AVAILABLE AT SPX 2013
The bookplate will be available at SPX 2013 as a part of the SPX 2013 limited edition print set, the sale of which helps underwrite the purchase of books for the Graphic Novel Gift Program.
AND YET MORE THANKS
Thanks also go to our participating publishers, without whom the program would in no way be possible.
And one final round of thanks goes to Warren Bernard, our exec director and Catherine Fraas, a long-time SPX volunteer and friend who bravely stepped aboard the run-away train that is the SPX steering committee and has taken on the challenge of running this program.
None of us are willing to take a breather until SPX-sponsored books are in every library in America! ONWARD UNTO COMICS!
SPX 2013 will be held September 14 and 15th in Bethesda, Maryland.
Through your attendance at SPX 2013 you will enable our Graphic Novel Gift Program for 2014. SPX receives no outside funding in support of its charitable programs. You make them possible!
Your ticket to SPX helps pay for programs like this that put graphic novels from independent publishers on the shelves of cash-strapped local libraries.
Eleanor Davis created the bookplate for the 2014 SPX library gift. If you haven’t seen it I’ll fix that right quick. This plate will appear in all of the books provided by SPX this year.
Prints of Eleanor’s bookplate will also be available SPX 2014 with the proceeds going to charity.
All that we do, you make possible. Thanks for your support and thanks to Eleanor and Kali for producing such beautiful art.
Did you happen to catch Roman Muradov’s SPX advert in the latest Smoke Signal? It’s so beautiful! You’ll be able to pick up a print of it at SPX 2014 - with all proceeds going to charity, of course!
