But getting my mitts on a Chris Ware poster wasn’t what our Labor Day SPX business was all about…
We had charitable works to perform! Look for an announcement later in the week detailing our 2012 Graphic Novel Gift program, which benefits a different public library system every year.
Today, though, we were unpacking boxes (and more boxes) of graphic novels (from publishers like Koyama, Fanatgaphics, Adhouse, D&Q and Top Shelf) and fitting them all with a “Gift of SPX” bookplate. Their next stop is a library shelf where the can be leant and shared in our local community.
We’re extremely passionate about this program and I can’t wait to spill all the details, including the really kickass bookplate we’ve got for 2012. To give you an idea of what to expect, here’s the 2011 bookplate created for us by the exquisitely talented Lilli Carré (who, it should be noted will now be appearing at SPX this year!).
Lilli’s bookplate was placed in over 200 graphic novels that were bestowed last year to the Montgomery County Library System. We’re extremely proud and incredibly grateful for her support of this program. She couldn’t have gotten us off to a more lovely start…
