BookExpo is happening right now at the Javitz Center in NYC. I feel like I'm there, thanks to this Instagram photo of a lovely Workman sales rep showing off duopress books.
Violet Lemay Illustration is well represented on that table, and is in terrific company—so many collaborations of great artists, authors, designers, and editors! My art is featured in several of the books shown in this photo, including the soon-to-be-released... drumroll... ARTISTS AND THEIR PETS!
If you stop by Workman's booth (#2807), you might be able to get an Advance Reading Copy—a soft-cover version with a black and white interior. We adapted the cover design especially for the advance printing, as shown above. Eventually, ARTISTS AND THEIR PETS will be a beautiful hard-cover book with 298 full color illustrations. Yes, 298—as in, two less than three hundred! Some of the images are tiny, but still!!
As the publication date nears, I'll post more about ARTISTS AND THEIR PETS. For now I just wanted to spread the word about the advance copies that are being given away at BookExpo.
Click here to advance-order an actual, hard-cover, full-color, to-be-released-in-September copy of ARTIST AND THEIR PETS today!
