This is it! The official, comprehensive Chance Press @ SPX 2014 post. Please reblog as you see fit! Come by table W56 (in between Fantagraphics and AdHouse) to see what we’ve got… We’ve been working for months to come up with a mix of neat stuff, and we can’t wait to show it off.
THE MAIN EVENT
A Deitch Miscellany, available in an ultra-limited hardcover deluxe edition as well as a special SPX-EXCLUSIVE VARIANT with a Milo Manara pin-up of Kim! (Just kidding - we just bound these copies in very luxe handmade paper.)
Also debuting as SPX is the standalone publication of Kim Deitch’s sketches and studies for his past (and future!) books, resplendent in its full-bleed giclee-printed cover.
Finally, anyone who spends $15 or more at our table will get one of these “Official Six-Packs” of letterpress-printed bottle caps as a bonus.
First up, we will have the last copies of Frank Santoro’s Blast Furnace Funnies, in both the trade and deluxe edition. There aren’t many of these left! (Photo via Chris Diaz/The Shed)
Next, Check out Ink Poems by Michael Phillips (MJP). MJP was kind enough to do a bunch of original drawings that we’ll be giving away for FREE with each copy!
And let’s not forget about Furlqump! You know, the debut graphic novella by Brett Harder that we published three years ago but I still mention all time time because I think it’s amazing… We have an SPX-exclusive mini print that we’ll offer FREE with every copy, and we’ll be showing both the trade and the deluxe hardcover editions.
You may have heard of mega-TV-famous cartoonist/illustrator Paul Hornschemeier, and while you can find his books at Fantagraphics, we’ll have the VERY LAST COPIES of The Daily Forlorn, a collection of illustrations that includes a signed print and a fairly inventive (if I may say so) binding concept.
Also getting in on the FINAL COPIES EVER action is this cool anthology of SF Bay Area cartoonists that we published in conjunction with The Escapist Bookstore a couple years ago. I was stoked with this one, since we finally got to publish Geoff Vasile, one of my favorite cartoonists around. Justin Hall, Gabrielle Gamboa and Kane Lynch are in it as well. The trade edition of this book is sold out, but we’ll have the deluxe hardcover edition, which is signed/sketched by EVERY contributor!
Finally, we’ll have a selection from our backstock, including Acontextual Drawings by Abbigail McCracken, Stiff Breeze by Barry Lutz, and maybe some other stuff we decide to bring last-minute.
Okay, that’s it! Come by table W56 and say hi, even if you don’t want to buy anything - I can’t wait to meet each and every one of you.
