Harkham and Oldham Go to Town
Written by janice headley | Filed under Sammy Harkhamrockmerch 10 Oct 2011 11:13 AM

Sammy Harkham artwork for Bonnie

Two bearded artists with "ham" in their last names have teamed up for this latest release on Drag City Records!

Under his Bonnie 'Prince' Billy nom de plume, Will Oldham has a brand-new album out now featuring cover art by the one-and-only Sammy Harkham. Why, I think it might be time for another edition of Under the Covers with Fantagraphics...

Michael Kupperman's Mark Twain book gets Tiny - Showcase, that is
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Michael Kuppermanmerch 4 Oct 2011 3:34 PM

Mark Twain's Autobiography 1910-2010 by Michael Kupperman

Tiny Showcase announces: "Tonight we have the pleasure of launching an edition of Kupperman's new book, Mark Twain's Autobiography 1910-2010, signed by the artist and coupled with an exclusive print. A combination archival-digital print with a translucent, glow-in-the-dark screen print overlay -- this showcase is designed to thrizzle. Everything you've ever dreamed of launches tonight at 7:30pm on Tiny Showcase." (They're in Providence so I believe that's Eastern time.)

We'll update with an image of the print once it's available, but we wanted to give you some advance warning since these Tiny Showcase editions are, uh, tiny and tend to sell out fast.

UPDATE: Here's a look at the print! Order here!

Wonderful Woodring Wear for Rain Taxi
Written by janice headley | Filed under merchJoe SaccoJim Woodringgood deedsfashion 4 Oct 2011 11:13 AM

You'll wanna hail down one of these wonderful new tees from Jim Woodring, designed for our friends at the non-profit literary organization, Rain Taxi!

I don't even know where to start when it comes to all the great stuff Rain Taxi does for literature. You may already be familiar with their award-winning quarterly-publication Rain Taxi: Review of Books, which is frickin' free all across the nation. But they also power tons of great events, like the annual Twin Cities Book Festival!

So, not only are you sportin' some fine Pushpaw action across your chest, but you're also supporting an awesome organization!

And it looks like they still have some of the Joe Sacco-designed tee in stock, but only in size small!

What a Great F***ing Duck Indeed

Quaxelrod by Paul Hornschemeier

Here's a fine-feathered one for the Fantagraphics Fashion Files: a mustachioed duck tee from Paul Hornschemeier.

Read that again. A mustachioed duck tee.

Apparently, it's a character from somebody else's book. But I don't really care. 'Cause it's a duck. With a mustache. And a portion of the t-shirt sales go to Young Chicago Authors.

Twain in the Membrane: Desert Island Print
Written by janice headley | Filed under Michael Kuppermanmerchevents 20 Sep 2011 5:12 PM

Michael Kupperman print for Desert Island

Michael Kupperman ponders the possibilities of Mark Twain's passing in this positively perfect print for Desert Island in Brooklyn. (My favorite possibility? Shot in the crotch.)

Get your own copy of this historically accurate print on Thursday, October 13th, at the book release party for Mark Twain's Autobiography 1910-2010.  Store owner Gabriel Fowler notes that if there are any prints leftover at the end of the night (unlikely!), they'll be available online.

Keep an eye on all our Twain in the Membrane tour dates on the Fantagraphics Events page!

Business tee by Paul Hornschemeier

It's been a while since Paul Hornschemeier has had a new t-shirt design, but he's back... and he means business.  As in this t-shirt design. Go get one and go for that promotion, available online at Paul's Forlorn Funnies Shirt Shop.

R. Crumb Mr. Natural ltd. ed. print & more Crumb opinions
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Robert Crumbmerchinterviews 1 Sep 2011 6:27 PM

A new limited-edition giclee print of a reworked version of Mr. Natural #2 by Robert Crumb is now available from Wildwood Serigraphs.

And there appears to be a new (I think) installment of "Crumb on Others" where the man holds forth his candid opinions on various prominent figures in comics and popular culture, from his underground contemporaries to Charles Schulz, from Walt Disney to Walt Kelly, from The Beatles to Bettie Page. Must read!

Jim Woodring Tote Bag for SPX

Eeeee!!! I totes want this tote!

Yesterday, our friends at SPX revealed this year's gorgeous tote bag design, featuring exclusive artwork by guest-of-honor Jim Woodring. Click here to see a larger version of the pic above, and really take in all the glorious details on this thing.

It will only be available at the 2011 Small Press Expo, happening September 10th & 11th in Bethesda, Maryland... and, I don't think it's gonna last long! (Kim! Gary! Somebody grab one for me!!)

More SPX details will be announced very soon! Make sure to take note of our panel schedule in the meantime...

Jason, Lilli Carré & Thomas Ott skate decks for... Penguin?
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Thomas OttmerchLilli CarréJason 15 Aug 2011 7:23 PM

If I were up on skate lingo I would be spouting the equivalent of "holy crap" here... Penguin has produced a series of limited edition skate decks featuring artwork from their Penguin Classics Deluxe line, including covers by Jason for Kerouac's Dharma Bums, Lilli Carré for Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and Thomas Ott for We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson. At Lilli's blog you can see a photo of her hoisting hers over her head. There was a Facebook contest where you could win one (which we learned of too late) and USA Today's report on the decks lists some promotional events on college campuses — no word on if/when you'll actually be able to buy these, though.

Esther Pearl Watson is a Rrriot, Girl!

Esther Pearl Watson for Poketo

Apparently, we're not the only ones with the '90s Riot Grrrl movement on the brain!

Our friends at Poketo have just released a new series of wallets entitled "You're a Riot, Grrrl!" -- each wallet featuring artwork by bold female artists, like Lisa Hanawalt, Hellen Jo, and our very own, Esther Pearl Watson

I got the "Unlovable" wallet at San Diego Comic-Con, and lemme tell ya, so far, it's been quite lovable! The inside design boasts the truth "1978 Honda Hatchbacks are sexy" (damn straight) and it comes with a 1" Tammy Pierce button.

Esther Pearl Watson for Poketo 2

Poketo even did an illustrated interview with Esther on their blog, which you can read here, and you can get a wallet for yourself here. Totally.
