Get this! Family Books is re-opening, opening their doors Wednesdays through Sundays from now on. To kick things off, catch a book launch of Sean Wilsey’s More Curious on August 28 with and interview by Molly Shannon. Nice!
Hollywood’s Hennessey + Ingalls is welcoming Brandon Boyd for a little question and answer session about his new book. It’s happening August 16.
VIA Publication is having their big kickoff for their *third* issue coming up on August 10. It’s at the Ace and will be great!
It’s been some time since we’ve spoken about Made In L.A., *the* Summer art show in Los Angeles (and one that really does speak to the crazy talent we have in this city). There are many post-show things to write about, one of them being the really, really excellent exhibition catalogue. Serving as both a means to contextualize and sort of artsy yearbook, the book condenses and expands the idea of the exhibition into some well designed pages.
Local artist and writer Gordy Grundy has released a book called Artist’s Pants. It shares the humor and life of a working artist and is totally great. It’s out now!
