1. SPXclusive! It’s the “Official Six-Pack” from A Deitch Miscellany! I’ve been punching these bottle caps out all week, but I wasn’t sure how I was going to give them away at SPX. My first thought was just to have a bowl of them on the table, but then I decided to gather them into packs of six with little header cards and everything. (Also of note: this is the first thing Chance Press has ever done that involves staples.)

    Come by our table and spend at least $15 on books, and we’ll give you one of these for free! Limited to 50 (probably less, since I’m sure I’ll give a few away to trusted friends and associates).

    Don’t forget - W56, right next to Fantagraphics!

     
  2. SPXclusive! Furlqump by Brett Harder has been around for a few years, but it’s still one of my favorite things we’ve published. For SPX and SPX only, we’ll be selling copies of both the trade edition and the hardcover deluxe edition with a brand new mini print included free! The mini print is a pigment ink print on 4” x 6” Moab Somerset rag paper.

    Table W56, right next to Fantagraphics!

     
  3. Switcheroo! Apparently Fantagraphics and AdHouse both called up SPX and DEMANDED that Chance Press’s table be located between their tables*. Always one to oblige, SPX moved our table to W56 - smack dab in between them - so update your spreadsheets!

    Chance Press: the meat portion of the AdHouse/Fantagraphics sandwich since 2014.

    *This, to the best of my knowledge, is untrue.

     
  4. SPXclusive! We funded A Deitch Miscellany on Kickstarter earlier this year, and almost all the copies sold out by the end of the funding period. So, instead of our original plan to debut the book at SPX, we decided to make a special exclusive edition instead! The guts are the same, but this edition sports a spiffy hadmamed paper cover.

    (Seriously, this paper is something else - made by the St. Armand mill in Canada from recycled fabric scraps, it has a totally different feel than the stiff Fabriano paper we’re using for the regular edition. While that paper is like a crisp suit, this stuff feels more like a well-worn pair of jeans. Fashionable!)

    There are only 10 copies, with a high-until-you-see-how-cool-this-book-is price of $65. Find us at table N11 to claim your copy! 

     
  5. Table N11! Come see us at SPX! 

    Tomorrow, I’ll post pictures of the first SPXclusive we’re offering.

     
  6. Here are some detail photos of the hardcover special edition of A Deitch Miscellany. We added this small edition (15 copies) a few days into the Kickstarter funding period, since the paperback edition sold out right away. As of now, there’s one copy left, and we’ll have it for sale at SPX.

    Inside each cover is a suite of prints, including fine art inkjet prints of Kim’s Sex! Drugs! and Sweet Music! story originally published in Kramers Ergot 7. The guts of the book are comprised of a fold-out triptych with the same story in color and black and white as well as a 52-page selection of Kim’s pencil studies.

    The front cover plate and title page plate are letterpress printed, and each copy is signed by the artist.

     
  7. 4 for 400! Okay Tumblords, SPX is coming up, and in a couple days I’m going to start announcing exclusives in a naked attempt to entice SPX attendees to spend their hard-earned money at our table. That means it would be great if I could expand the Chance Press tumblr empire beforehand so that our missives reach the largest possible audience.

    We’re a stone’s throw from 400 followers, and to celebrate, whoever is our 400th follower will get the four books pictured above sent to them free of charge anywhere in the world! 

    Thanks for helping us out, and see you all at SPX!

     
  8. Working on the smaller (traditional album size) hardcover of A Deitch Miscellany. These were originally available through our Kickstarter for $150, and there’s still one [very minorly irregular] copy left that will be for sale at SPX.

     
  9. Here’s the newest illustrated cocktail recipe by Danielle Schroeder. If you’re in Cleveland, pick up next month’s Edible magazine for the print version!
