This is your last week to view the exquisite exhibition by Charles Burns at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery in Seattle. Don't miss out on an opportunity to attend his first show in his hometown in over a decade — a career-spanning body of work, with prints starting as low as $30.
It's also the last week to bid on Sub Pop founder Bruce Pavitt's private collection of pristine RAW magazines and the original Charles Burns drawing for Sub Pop #5 cassette zine — the direct predecessor to the legendary record label. The silent auction bid for this historic piece currently stands at $1,500. A bargain considering Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen's EMP museum paid over 3 times that amount 10 years ago for Burns' cover drawing of Sub Pop 200. To place a bid contact Fantagraphics curator Larry Reid at 206.658.0110 during store hours.
