It’s been a long time coming, but we finally managed to get the promised letterpress bookplates for Sophie Yanow’s War of Streets and Houses done! That means they will be sent out very soon to the preorder and subscription customers! Meanwhile check out some of our process pics. 

Special shout out to Bikini Press International for helping out!

We got a couple of Eisner Awards nominations!

David B.’s Incidents in the Night Book One is now ALSO (it was an L.A. Times Book Prize finalist as well) nominated for the Eisner Awards in the Best U.S. Edition of International Material category! Big congratulations to David B. and the other nominees! We’re extending the sale on this book (20% off!) in light of this announcement.

Also, our publisher/editor-in-chief/art director/accountant/cartoonist AKA the guy who runs Uncivilized Books AKA Tom Kaczynski, garnered an Eisner nomination for Best Publication Design for Beta Testing the Apocalypse. You can get his book from Fantagraphics, or you can get a signed copy from direct us.
