Fantagraphics Bookstore hosts the 4th annual HOT OFF THE PRESS BOOK FAIR on Saturday, July 14th from 5:00 – 9:00 PM with special guests Jim Woodring and Berlin cartoonist Lilli Loge. Small press publishers include Czap Books, Paper Press Punch, Kilgore Books, FU Press, Short Run Micropress, Fogland Studios, Cold Cube and others with appearances by local artists Simon Hanselmann, DW, Marc Palm, Tom Van Deusen, Max Clotfelter, Sarah Romano Diehl, Kelly Froh, Alex Graham, Brandon Lehmann, Laura Knetzger, Hella Handa, and many more.
Jim Woodring’s latest book Poochytown will debut at the fair. Loge will debut her new Tijuana Bible “The Muse,” a feminist reflection on the idea of the muse. Fogland Studios will publish a limited Woodring silkscreen print for the occasion, and the two artists will collaborate on a site-specific installation (which remains, on view through September 5.)
The event will feature live music by composer Bill Brovold of Rochester, NY. Brovold performed with pioneering experimental musician Rhys Chatham and fronted Detroit-based avant garde group Larval. Lilli Loge will also play a music set. Complimentary food and beverages will be served. Don’t miss this festive event, which coincides with the colorful Georgetown Art Attack.
