Invitation to Openness: The Jazz & Soul Photography of Les McCann 1960-1980 - Cover

Portraits shot at the right moment are like the fermata on a pitch perfect note.

Les McCann, jazz musician and photographer, was able to capture such moments of intimacy from legendary jazz singers and musicians. Feast your eyes on the first look of our finished cover art to McCann's retrospective, Invitation to Openness, curated and introduced by Pat Thomas (Listen Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975). Cannonball Adderley, Dizzy Gillespie, Donald Dean, and Nina Simone (as well as comedian Redd Foxx) grace the cover, a tiny sampling of the vast array of photographs that McCann took throughout his career.

Invitation to Openness is coming soon from Fantagraphics, a refrain you'll read and hear often until its March release, striking a chord within the hearts of photography fans and lovers of jazz alike.

Willard Mullin's Casey at the Bat and Other Diamond Tales - Cover

Baseball fans, rejoice! We have the final cover design for our upcoming book, Willard Mullin's Casey at the Bat and Other Diamond Tales, which collects Mullin's illustrations accompanying baseball-themed poetry by Ernest Thayer. The original images for Thayer's "Casey at the Bat" were thought to be lost for years, until they reemerged at an auction in 2002.

With material including the poems "Iron Horse Lou" and "O Brooklyn, My Brooklyn" and an introduction by Yogi Berra, Casey at the Bat makes for a great addition to any baseball fan's bookshelf. We expect a March release for this book, though you can pre-order it in advance, of course!

Saint Cole by Noah Van Sciver - Inside Page

Here at Fantagraphics headquarters, we're managing to keep our feet dry, plus we've got just-arrived advances of Saint Cole to look forward to! This brand new graphic novel by Noah Van Sciver, author of The Hypo: The Melancholic Young Lincoln, stars a painfully flawed protagonist whose drinking becomes steadily more debilitating with each (rain-soaked) day.

Saint Cole is on course for a February delivery date. You can read an 8-page excerpt and pre-order your copy here.

Angry Youth Comix by Johnny Ryan - Cover Uncovered

Angry Youth Comix by Johnny Ryan - Cover

Any fan of cartoonist Johnny Ryan's work knows how understated and reserved he is. The truly refined nature of his comics deserves an equally classy cover design, and we think that our talented designer Keeli has outdone herself in creating a cover worthy of such stature. 

Angry Youth Comix collects all fourteen issues of Ryan's series-of-the-same-name, as well as all the covers and letters pages, into one 424-page volume of absurdist, taboo-tackling humor! Although it's not out until February 2015, you can place your pre-order now.

Our volume of Guy Colwell's collected work has arrived in our office! Interspersed with commentary by Patrick Rosenkranz and filled with stories of radical activism, inner city life, racial tension, and—as one of our office staff noted—"a whole lot of fucking," Inner City Romance will likely make you uncomfortable while keeping you mesmerized page after page.

In addition to every issue of Colwell's Inner City Romance series, this volume has a personal essay by the author, many contextual essays by Rosenkranz to introduce each issue, and full color examples of the paintings Colwell produced in the same era.

You won't want to miss adding this book to your underground comix collection, so make sure to grab it while it's on pre-sale!

Pre-order your copy of this book now for a February 2015 delivery!
