I posted a few shots earlier, via our Instagram feed, of some SPX guests: Roz Chast, Diane Noomin, Ann Telnaes, Jim Woodring and Jen Sorenson - along with friend of the show, Jonathan Barli and a couple of SPX staffers visiting the Library of Congress.
Here are a few more shots courtesy of SPX Exec. Director, Warren Bernard to whose sway we owe the visit. Many, many thanks to Sara Duke and Martha Kennedy of the LOC for being such wonderful and accomodating hosts.
These are the folks that will be taking care of YOUR WORK at the Library of Congress and I am very happy to tell you that they are simply awesome folks. We’re astoundingly lucky to have such great partners for the SPX collection at the LOC.
Yes, it’s librarian neepiness, but I’m really curious how the Library of Congress is going to organize these comics.
Also curious how the LOC will determine which small press comics to add to their archives. Does anyone know if they are currently collecting from schools?
