More great press for Jerry Robinson: An Ambassador of Comics with this excellent feature in the Toronto Star. If you’re a comics fan, I strongly encourage you to check out the brilliant musings on Charles Kochman’s blog. He is the editorial director for Abrams ComicArts and the individual who discovered Jeff Kinney at New York Comic Con. Need I say more? The gorgeous book DOGS by Tim Flach is featured in the beautiful new online magazine Covet Garden. This mag is drool worthy in a good way, kinda like Tim Flach’s stunning photography.
Shazam! The Golden Age of the World’s Mightiest Mortal was featured on Sneakpeek.ca and picked up on IMBD. The book features over 300 illustrations and chronicles the history of the one and only Captain Marvel. For the book trailer, check out our Youtube channel here.
Organized Simplicity by Tsh Oxenreider (I LOVE her name, but don’t even think about asking me how to pronounce it!) will be featured in the March issue of Style at Home Magazine. If getting organized is on your list of resolutions this year, you’re not alone. Get organized is one of the top 10 New Years resolutions for 2011, second only to lose weight.
P.S. I Made This... was featured in the Living section of the Toronto Star this week. The author takes crafts and fashion to a whole new level, and I dare say it works for both the young professional and her bratty little sister.
An interview with Jennifer Joyner, author of the heartfelt memoir Designated Fat Girl recently ran in The Province. The book is a painfully honest account of Joyner’s experiences as an obese woman—of always having to buy new clothes that fit, pretending to order for two people at drive-through fast-food joints, not fitting into her wedding dress, and the cruel comments that haunted her. In the end, it is also a story of recovery and survival.
The beautiful book Chris Ofili will be featured in the April issue of House and Home Magazine. Ofili’s paintings often refer to his Nigerian heritage and the wider African-American and Afro-Caribbean experience. The coolest part about his work is the incorporation of rather random materials such as sequins or map pins. His trademark? Varnished elephant dung! The book accompanies a major Tate exhibition.
Kris Carr is everywhere at the moment, promoting her hugely popular Crazy Sexy Diet book. If you’re interested in experimenting with some of her alkaline recipes, check out her Raw Goddess Soup on Daily Squeeze, and Buddha Bowl on the House and Home blog.
Star Wars Visions was given tremendous treatment on the Canadian blog jedinews. This book will appeal to anyone with an appreciation of fine art, especially those with a penchant for sci-fi.
