As Valentine’s Day approaches, nothing says love like comix. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is your gateway to romance, filled with exquisite gifts at affordable prices. We suggest the latest installment of Love & Rockets from Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez – always a sensual pleasure. For something more suggestive, check out Lust, featuring lurid personal ads from The Stranger, lovingly illustrated by Ellen Forney.
Those rejecting the contrivance of this Hallmark holiday may find solace in the heartbreaking hilarity of Esther Pearl Watson’s Unlovable series or the charming allure of Jordan Crane’s The Last Lonely Saturday, available in limited quantities exclusively at the bookstore.
Bring your loved one to Fantagraphics Bookstore on Valentine’s eve, February 13, to meet Kaz who will be signing his lovely new book Underworld: From Hoboken to Hollywood. Make it an amazing evening at the 8th anniversary of the colorful Georgetown Art Attack, featuring lively art presentations throughout the enchanting industrial arts district. (The inaugural Art Attack in 2008 included Ellen Forney signing Lust. She‘ll be at the bookstore again this year showing off her spectacular Kaz tattoo!)
