Few things tickle the Gosh ivories like a new Jim Woodring book. The most recent two – Weathercraft & Congress of the Animals – have been among his best work. So it’s with some excitement we’re awaiting his latest book, Fran, and doubly so because we have our very own Gosh! Exclusive Bookplate Edition!
In effect a direct sequel to Congress of the Animals, in which Frank finally met his soulmate, Fran charts life for the pair beyond that first tentative meeting. I really can’t describe it better than Fantagraphics when they say “fans of Frank, connoisseurs of bizarre romance, and spelunkers in the radiant depths of graphic metaphysical psychodrama will want to add this singular cartoon adventure story to their lifetime reading list.”
And this isn’t just any bulk standard plate, oh no. We were so enamoured of the image we got, we’ve stumped for a special, oversized A5 mini-print!
Available in November, we’ll have 200 bookplate editions signed and numbered by Jim Woodring for no more than the cover price of £14.99. If you’d like to preorder a copy, email as at email@example.com. Mail order folks, you can preorder now, and we’ll contact you with up to date shipping costs once the book is released!
