Seripop book launch (June 3 Drawn & Quarterly)

May 30, 2010


From the Drawn & Quarterly newsletter:

Acclaimed Montreal-based duo Seripop has teamed up with Brooklyn publisher Soundscreen Design to do a book overseeing years of stellar poster work as part of their Artist Music Journals series.

We will be hosting a little launch party where the duo will sign books, sell posters and show a few process videos. There will also be a few deals and 2 for 1’s where you can get a poster or a copy of their recent screenprinted zine (collab w/ Liza Czech and Daniel Owen White) with a purchase of the book. Seripop will also have a stack of the latest issue of Free Drawings to give away!

Le renommé duo d’artistes montréalais Séripop vient de sortir, avec l’aide de Soundscreen Design – et dans le cadre de leur série Artist Music Journals, un livre retraçant plusieurs années de posters inoubliables.

Dédicaces, ventes de posters et projection de vidéos documentaires sont au menu de la fête de lancement que nous organisons. Séripop offrira des prix spéciaux et des offres 2 pour 1: une affiche ou une copie de leur dernier zine sérigraphié (une collaboration avec Liza Czech et Daniel Owen White) à l’achat de leur nouveau livre. Ce n’est pas tout, Séripop amène aussi une pile du dernier numéro de Free Drawings à donner!

Nous poserons comme mannequin chacun notre tour, s’inspirant de nos costumes ridicules. Les collaborations et les expérimentations sont encouragés!

Comme d’habitude, apportez votre papier, vos outils de dessin et vos rafraichissements à boire! Si vous désirez que nous publions vos dessins sur le blog, soumettez-nous les images digitales de vos créations à l’adresse dndmtl@gmail.com.
