“Literary Figures” Coloring Book Release!

July 28, 2014 in Downtown Fullerton Art Walk

You are cordially invited to the next book release + art show at BOOKMACHINE books + zines. Jesse La Tour is re-releasing his long out of print coloring book “Literary Figures: a Coloring Book” featuring drawings and fun facts about the giants of world literature (this was the first ever show at BOOKMACHINE, back in 2010). This show will also feature the “Literary Figure” paintings of local artist Melinda Hagman. Come learn about some literary figures, and pick up some rare, used, and indie books at BOOKMACHINE books + zines. This very special opening is Friday, August 1, 2014 from 6-10pm during the Downtown Fullerton Art Walk. As always, this event is FREE and open to the public. Also, as always, artwork and books will be for sale. Hope to see you there!
