Lots of stuff to talk about! Where do we begin?!
TICKET STUB IS HERE!
First off, Ticket Stub, the book collecting Tim Hensley’s beloved mini-comic/zine series, has arrived at Yam Books HQ, and we are thrilled by how great it turned out!
IT’S BARBARA STANWYCK, HOPSY!
We are still taking online pre-orders for the book. As a “thank you” to all our pre-orderers, we are including this letter-pressed bookmark for FREE, designed by Tim specifically for this book’s launch! These stunning bookmarks were letter-pressed by the great folks at Oakland-based Volta Press. So, keep Barbara tucked away in your favorite book to remind you that “there’s a speed limit in this state, Mr. Neff. Forty-five miles an hour.” Each pre-order copy of the book will also be signed by Tim. For goodness’ sakes! This offer expires soon, so please make sure to get your orders in now! ASAP! Immediately!
(Note: During checkout, please make sure to write who you would like the book signed to in the Paypal “Special Instructions” field. For those who have already pre-ordered, we will contact you by email for this information.)
“Ticket Stub” Debuts at the Alternative Press Expo (APE)
Tim Hensley’s “Ticket Stub” will debut at the 2012 Alternative Press Expo (APE), October 13-14. show! Tim will appear LIVE in PERSON to sign copies and to discuss captioning “Big Mama’s House.” He might have some mini-comics and prints on hand which will be an added treat! We will also have copies of Lollygag, the sketchbook anthology collaboration by Lark Pien and Yam Books, showcasing the compulsive doodles of some of the most exciting and innovative cartoonists today such as Tom Gauld, Dan Zettwoch, Lilli Carre, Vanessa Davis and Dylan Horrocks to name a few. We will also have some of the latest titles from our friends at Koyama Press. So get ready, West Coasties and APE attendees! Make sure to visit us, Little Bird Books and Yam Books, at Table 306!
