Eroyn Franklin book release party announcement

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery celebrates publication of Eroyn Franklin's ambitious graphic novel Another Glorious Day at the Nothing Factory.

 

August 12, 2009 - Seattle, WA. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery continues its summer celebration of Seattle cartoonists with a signing and book launch party for Eroyn Franklin's new graphic novel Another Glorious Day at the Nothing Factory on Saturday, August 22 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Produced with the support of the Xeric Foundation and Allied Arts, this 216 page book consists of striking hand cut images, with an individually die-cut silkscreen cover in a numbered edition of 1,000 copies.

Another Glorious Day at the Nothing Factory is a revealing examination of the artist's transition from adolescence to adulthood. Franklin's impressionistic narrative complements the austere hand cut imagery in her exquisitely crafted autobiography. Original pages from Another Glorious Day at the Nothing Factory are included in the bookstore's current exhibition "Comics Savants: A Survey of Seattle Alternative Cartoonists."

Franklin was awarded a prestigious Xeric grant in 2008 to assist with production of this project. Past recipients of funding from the Xeric Foundation, which supports publishing efforts of emerging cartoonists, include notable Seattle artists Ellen Forney, Megan Kelso and David Lasky, who are also featured in the exhibition "Comics Savants."

Please join us on Saturday, August 22 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM as Fantagraphics Books continues its commitment to promoting the work of promising regional cartoonists with a party honoring Franklin's impressive achievement. The artists will sign copies of the newly minted graphic novel as well as her equally superb handcrafted mini comic The Here.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale St. (at Airport Way S.) only minutes south of downtown. Open daily 11:30 until 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.
