Hello there! I've added a couple new books to the shop AND some really beautiful lino-block prints by T. Edward Bak. The books are: The City Troll, a debut graphic novel by Aaron Whitaker; The Sky In Stereo, an excellent new series from Mardou; and Sophia Wiedeman's dark and gorgeous The Deformitory. Please check them out!

Though we couldn't make it this year, Quimby's Bookstore and the Chicago Zine Fest were kind enough to give us the Long Arm Stapler Award. The award is given to recognize dedication to self-publishing and the First Amendment; ours was also given to recognize Dylan's work in this community. Our friend Nicole Georges accepted the award for us.
We'd like to thank Liz and the Quimby's crew and everyone involved with CZF for choosing us and honoring Dylan.
