  • 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.

    NH – Cartoon Journalism Lecture

    Joe Sacco speaks on Thursday, February 24, 2011 at 5pm

    Where: Kemeny 008, Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH

    Sacco traveled to the Middle East for the first time in 1992 and came away from Israel and the occupied territories with the material that would make up his groundbreaking two-part comic book series Palestine. An accessible, thoughtful, and moving book of Middle East political journalism achieved through the innovative use of comics, Palestine won an American Book Award. Sacco’s first major follow-up to the book was titled Safe Area Gorazde and based upon Sacco’s recent travels to the war-torn region. It received major attention from the mainstream press, such as TIME magazine, The New York Times, and NPR.

    Presented in collaboration with The Center for Cartoon Studies and the Leslie Center for the Humanities at Dartmouth College.  Sponsored by the Will and Ann Eisner Family Foundation.
