A little bit of recent history for you: although Andy Brown founded the publishing company in Montreal, way back in 1996 (an unsubtle birthday reminder: next year, we’re turning 25!), he moved to Nova Scotia over ten years ago, books (and zine collection) in tow. Although we’re not as centrally located anymore, we’ve remained heavily involved in the national literature, comics and zine scenes–which means plenty of people still assume we’re in Montreal.
Although Montreal still holds a special place in our heart, we love our Nova Scotia home too, so we always appreciate when one of our books is recognized by a local publication. Right now, we’re pretty excited to share that Langosh and Peppi: Fugitive Days, by Halifax’s own Veronica Post, is one of the featured titles in the latest issue of Atlantic Books Today! Veronica will also be appearing, alongside many others, at the Afterwords Festival, as a part of the Nova Graphica launch.
