|Inventory discovery: Pim & Francie: Collector's Edition by Al Columbia|

We miscounted! It turns out that, almost 3 years after we first offered it to what appeared to be an almost-immediate sellout, we actually have 4 copies left of the Pim & Francie: Collector's Edition by Al Columbia.
Each copy of this special limited Collectors Edition comes with an original sketch hand-drawn and signed by Al Columbia. This sketch is on a separate sheet of paper which is tipped in (inserted without adhesive) to the book. See below for a representative example of a typical sketch. This special edition was strictly limited to 50 copies and is available exclusively only to consumers who order direct from Fantagraphics. Did we mention there's only 4 of them left?? The price is $100 and we expect them to be gone almost instantaneously, so order now!
As for the book itself (still available in the standard edition), this gorgeous grimoire is part alchemy, part art book, part storybook, part comic book, and part conceptual art, a broken jigsaw puzzle of a book starring two childlike imps whose irresponsible antics get them into horrific trouble.
