We are super super excited to announce the launch of a new project we've been working on the past year with artists from Minneapolis and Providence to Edinburgh, Scotland. The Little Otsu Living Things Series is an ever-expanding collection of mini art books in which different artists each explore one idea based around the theme of living things. Our first two inaugural volumes are by Lizzy Stewart, whose theme is "A Guide to Eastern European Wildlife" (not to be taken too literally) and Jo Dery, who tackled the complexities of "Pheromones." They are both so amazing and totally different and we hope you will like these affordable and beautiful limited edition little art books as much as we do!
Dan Black of Annual Planner fame was nice enough to help out with the cover design and he did an outstanding job of creating a cohesive look that will continue throughout the series. We have lots of great artists planned for the next year like APAK, Lilli Carré, Jessica Seamans, Hannah Waldron, Martine Workman, and Dan himself will be contributing an installment. We hope to bring you two different books on a quarterly basis so there should be a lot of different types of Living Things to go around. We may even offer a subscription to the series so that you don't miss out on any of the excitement.
The official release date for the first two volumes is next Wednesday, but we should have some available at the SF store this weekend and Jo will be debuting her book on Saturday at the Brooklyn Comics Fest (which has an amazing line-up!) so stop by and pick one up directly from the artist herself. She'll be crashing at table 9 so be on the lookout for her eye-catching cover!
