Recto Verso: A Small Press Expo

Fantagraphics is excited to be taking part in the Second Annual Small Press Festival here in Seattle, a month-long series of events celebrating independent publishing that includes a show this Saturday, April 9th at the Richard Hugo House from 2:00 to 6:00 pm. Our office assistant Eric Buckler will be manning the table, so be sure to swing by and say hi!

To help celebrate Seattle's vibrant book scene, we'll be featuring selections from local artists like Jim Woodring, Megan Kelso, Ellen Forney, Peter Bagge, Jim Blanchard and more!

We'll also have a selection of half-price "damaged" books, chosen from the infamous back room at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery! (No, not THAT back room, the other one!)

The event will also feature readings by local authors, informal talks, and drink specials throughout the afternoon! Admission is $5-$15 sliding scale, and includes gifts and a nifty book bag with price of entry. See you there!
