  • Girl In Dior Signing Tour

    Gir- In-Dior

    Press Release:

    This April, NBM Publishing, one of the pioneers in graphic novel publishing in the US for 37 years and a leader in literary comic art, proudly launches a sweepingly beautiful biography docudrama of the life of Christian Dior from the launch of his house and his “New Look” in Girl in Dior.

    One of France’s grand dames of comic art, Annie Goetzinger, will be on hand for the premiere of Girl in Dior at MoCCA Arts Festival, one of her many appearances while visiting the United States. Other appearances include a panel at the French Embassy co-sponsored by Christian Dior Couture US and moderated by Dior House illustrator, Bil Donovan and a signing/art display at New York’s Kinokuniya Bookstore.

    The Girl in Dior is Clara, a freshly hired chronicler, fan of fashion and our guide in the busy corridors of the brand new house of Christian Dior. It’s February 12, 1947 and the crème de la crème of Paris Haute Couture is flocking to the momentous event of Dior’s first show. In a flurry of corolla shaped skirts, the parade of models file down the runway. The audience is mesmerized: it’s a triumph! Carmel Snow of Harper’s Bazaar cries out: “It’s quite a revolution, your dresses have such a new look!“ Dior’s career is launched and Clara’s story begins. Soon, she is picked by Dior himself to be his model…

    A biography docudrama marrying fiction and the story of one of the greatest couturier in history, it is also a breathless and stunning presentation of his best designs such as Lauren Bacall wore, rendered by bestselling artist Annie Goetzinger, seen for the first time on this side of the Atlantic.

    Below please find Annie Goetzinger’s appearance schedule.

    “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan signs at Books & Books on Monday April 2, 2012 at 6:00 pm

    Offering professional wrestling fans a ringside seat into his adventurous life, WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Jim Duggan recounts for the first time key moments and legendary bouts both inside and outside the ring in Hacksaw: The Jim Duggan Story (Triumph, $19.95). Known to millions of enthusiasts as a charismatic patriot — with an American flag in his right hand and his signature two-by-four in his left — Duggan shares how an injury-plagued NFL rookie season curtailed his football ambitions and paved the way for a brighter career in professional wrestling. Rising to fame in the Cold War–era 1980s, Duggan engaged in legendary feuds with some of the biggest names in wrestling, including the Iron Sheik, Nikolai Volkoff, and Andre the Giant. Duggan also reflects on his fight against kidney cancer during the prime of his career. With each page peppered with Duggan’s charming wit, fans will find much to enjoy and discover about the man they once knew only as “Hacksaw.”
