5-reprint

Yes ladies and gentlemen! I’m out books… They’re all either sold, or in bookstores. Since I am planning 2 future book signings, I will reprint! 🙂 Decision was taken after many hours of thorough reflection 😛

Book signings planned for October:

*28/10/2009: Ceramic Lounge, Saïfi Village: (this is the top secret project that is going to keep me busy and therefore a little bit slower in posting) Ceramic Lounge will be launching a special edition of stencils of my drawings for people to be able to paint them on ceramics! (plates, mugs, tiles … you name it!) The launching will also be accompanied by a presentation and a book signing session. More details soon!!

* Youth Culture Center, Zouk Mikael: (Date TBD [=To Be Defined 😛 ] As the Library of Zouk Mikael is being restored and refurnished with many books, we will organize in collaboration a book signing there! I am very proud that Zouk Mikael has now a public library! You can submit your books there as well. Click here for more information.

While I’m at it, I will also be presenting the blog and book at Pecha Kucha Night Beirut #6 along with 13 artists who will be talking about their work. Click here for more details.

With this, I wish you a lovely weekend! I’ve got lots of preparations during this month, wish me luck! 😉

As I promised you, I am adding a (very small) selection of images from the book signing! Click here for the public Facebook album. I hope this gives a general idea of how beautiful you guys made this event! + scroll down for a small-exclusive-top-secret-very-special image of the book in VIRGIN MEGASTORE DOWNTOWN!! 🙂 (you all know taking photos in Virgin is not allowed right? :P) Yes, yes, the book is officially in Virgin Megastore and Librairie Antoine all over Lebanon so run now to the closest bookstore and check it out!
