CT – Baggywrinkles Signing

00000000-baggywrinklesCartoonist Lucy Bellwood signs at Bank Square Books on Sunday, June 5, 2016 from 1:00 till 3:00 PM!

Welcome to the world of Baggywrinkles—a rollicking, educational survey of maritime lore, built around cartoonist Lucy Bellwood’s time aboard tall ships. From the scourge of scurvy to the exhilaration of climbing the rigging for the first time, Lucy’s comics bring the reader into a world of high seas history and informative adventure with “a sheer and unremitting sense of joy” [Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier]. Bellwood sailed aboard square-rigged vessels for months to collect the experiences found in these pages. Readers will learn about the secret language of sailors’ tattoos, why it’s a terrible idea to make someone walk the plank, and how scurvy went from a misunderstood scourge to a curable disease.
