Written by janice headley | Filed under Jacques BoyreauFantagraphics Bookstoreevents 14 Feb 2013 9:30 AM

Last weekend, it was a sexytime, indeed, at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery as we launched our latest exhibit for Sexytime: The Post-Porn Rise of the Pornoisseur!

Editor Jacques Boyreau joined us from Portland to sign this impressive collection of vintage porn posters from the '70s! Reprints of those posters adorn our gallery wall, including such titles as New Wave Hookers and Deep Inside Annie Sprinkle!

Our musical guest for the night was Olympia, WA-based artist Poppet, aka Molly Rainey, whose orchestrated electro-loop-pop had everyone dancing...

... including Poppet herself!

Georgetown's Little Black Devil Burlesque babes dropped by to deliver kisses -- Hershey's Chocolate ones, that is! As you can see, Sexytime: The Post-Porn Rise of the Pornoisseur is not only the finest collection of vintage porn posters ever, it also makes a nice serving tray!

Thank you to everyone who came out for this sexy time to celebrate SexytimeSexytime will continue to be on display at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery through Wednesday, March 6th. Drop by to see it in person at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone: (206) 658-0110.
