New York Art Book Fair

This weekend was the NY Artbook Fair. Although a nightmare travelling (never make a connection in Philidelphia if it is raining) the show itself was great. Got to hang out with the guys from Anteism, Lesley Johnson, and my host with the most, Mr. Corey Frost. We discussed a new publishing venture over REAL food (difficult to find in rural NS) and free vodka at a “Gentleman’s Club.” Golly there are a lot of PEOPLE in NY. At one point I looked around the airless room in PS1 and figured there were more people there than my...

Conundrum Towers

So I’ve been on the road all summer and now it’s back to school and back to getting books ready for fall releases (more on that soon), not to mention back to posting! The final event of the Temple Bates East Coast Tour was in Conundrum Towers (my mansion in Greenwich, Nova Scotia). We were joined by Mike Holmes who came up from Halifax to have a Valley launch of his book True Story which was published by Invisible Publishing. Temple gave her artist talk and Mike did spontaneous True Story strips by members of the audience. Here we...
