Do you know about Independent Bookstore Day? Because you should. It’s a great way to support your local Indie shop and I’ll be there. Well, sort of.
Every year, participating independent book stores encourage readers to come in for IBD and they offer kick-ass things that you can’t get anywhere else. I’ve seen what’s coming this year and it’s bad-ass and I am incredibly proud to be included in the celebration.
I drew this specifically for Indie Bookstore Day and the only place it will be sold is at independent book stores on Saturday, April 29th.
It’ll be printed on archival matte paper and it’s 16X20 and (just like with any of my drawings) you can either color it or leave it black and white. There will be only 2,500 available and they’re all personally signed by me. It’s not in my new book, YOU ARE HERE: An Owner’s Manual For Dangerous Minds, so it’s exclusive to indie bookstores. They’re first-come-first served so call your local indie store to see if they’ll be carrying it. I realize that many of you are like me, in that I would rather eat a bag of glass than make a phone call or leave the house, but there is a special exception to this because bookstores are safe, magical places full of sanctuary and escape. They’re like church, but with less eating Jesus.
I’m not sure if I even make anything from the sale of the prints but anything I get I’ll use to buy books for people in this community because I know not everyone can easily afford them and books are the best medicine that exists in the world. THE END.
Wait…not the end. I forgot the details. You can only get them in person at independent bookstores in America on the day of IBD but if there are any left the next day they might be available to buy online or over the phone. I’ll remind you of all of this stuff again later because you’re probably as forgetful as I am.
I hope you like it. I hope you like the book. I hope I’m good enough for you.
