When visiting Seattle this summer, make a mandatory stop at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery in the historic Georgetown arts community. Search for coveted single-issues of Eightball, Hate, JIM, Palestine, Love & Rockets, and other hard to find merchandise. Check out original art and prints by your favorite artists. This week you can pick up a copy of the new edition of Phoebe Gloeckner‘s Diary of a Teenage Girl along with a revealing 2004 interview by Gary Groth in The Comics Journal #261. The new film, featuring Kristin Wiig, Alexander Skarsgard and Bel Powley opens locally on Friday. Looks fascinating.
Fantagraphics Bookstore is located at 1201 S. Vale Street (at Airport Way S.) just minutes south of downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110. See you all soon.
