  • 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.

    From www.willeisner.com, “Will Eisner Week is an annual celebration honoring the legacy of Will Eisner and promoting sequential art, graphic novel literacy, and free speech.” Will Eisner Week features a series of events to be held early March 2014 in more than a dozen cities around the country to honor the work and career of the great comics innovator Will Eisner (1917-2005), the comics medium, and the graphic novel format.

    About the Speakers:

    Denis Kitchen, a cartoonist in the “underground comix” movement, founded Kitchen Sink Press (1969-99), a pioneering house that published early comics and graphic novels by R. Crumb, Will Eisner, Harvey Kurtzman, Al Capp, Scott McCloud, Alan Moore, Art Spiegelman, Charles Burns, Mark Schultz, Howard Cruse and countless others. In 1986 Kitchen founded the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, a non-profit First Amendment organization, and chaired it for its first eighteen years. He’s co-authored three books: The Art of Harvey Kurtzman (Abrams, 2009) with Paul Buhle; Underground Classics (Abrams, 2009) with James Danky; and Al Capp: A Life to the Contrary (Bloomsbury, 2013) with Michael Schumacher. A monograph, The Oddly Compelling Art of Denis Kitchen, was published in 2010. He curates art exhibits in America and abroad featuring comics artists like Eisner, Kurtzman, Crumb and the underground genre. In 2013 he revived Kitchen Sink Books as an imprint of Dark Horse Books with partner John Lind.

    Paul Hornschemeier is the author of the graphic novels Mother, Come Home, The Three Paradoxes, the New York Times Best Seller Life with Mr. Dangerous, as well as the short story collections Let Us Be Perfectly Clear and All and Sundry. His prose and comics – which have been translated into multiple languages and garnered international awards – have appeared in publications ranging from Life Magazine to The Wall Street Journal. He has taught art and creative writing for The University of Chicago and lectured internationally. His animation appears on IFC’s “Comedy Bang! Bang!” He lives and works in Boston, Massachusetts.
