The Milan Review Book Premiere 02/09/12
This is the second issue of The Milan Review and it features 224 color pages inside a dark blue cover. Divided in twelve chapters, each named after a sign of the zodiac, each containing a short story and a portfolio by a different artist. The artists and the authors were paired arbitrarily. I got Gemini.
The writers: Iphgenia Baal, Amie Barrodale, Chiara Barzini, Blake Butler, Matthias “Wolfboy” Connor, Seth Fried, Amelia Gray, Shane Jones, Robert Lopez, Clancy Martin, Francesco Pacifico, Lynne Tillman.
The artists: Massimiliano Bomba, Carola Bonfili, Milano Chow, TJ Cowgill, Joe DeNardo, Francesco de Figueiredo, Roope Eronen, Frédéric Fleury, Christy Karacas, Taylor McKimens, Brenna Murphy, Toony Navok.
I will be showing the original drawings I did for the book but more importantly the very funny and talented author Amie Barrodale will do a reading. You don't want to miss this, we will have copies of the book for sale and there's a bar so if you buy the book and say nice things to me and Amie I will probably buy you a drink.
See you there!
