Put on your fanciest beret and get ready to see some beaux arts! Overcup Press is getting ready to release Matt Wagner’s newest title, The Tall Trees of Paris, and we want everyone to celebrate with us. Wagner already has a few “Tall Trees” books under his belt—first he made his way through the Tokyo art scene in The Tall Trees of Tokyo, and then he explored the works Portland artists have been creating in The Tall Trees of Portland. Now Wagner is tipping his hat to the City of Lights, seeing what 42 incredible contemporary Parisian artists do every day in the city they call home. This gorgeous new book features examples of each artist’s oeuvre with an accompanying questionnaire documenting each artist’s favorite arrondissement for eating, reading, and drinking. Featured artists include 2Shy, Alëxone, Blek Le Rat and Christelle Enault.
The Book of the Hour: The Tall Trees of Paris
We’re kicking off the launch of our latest project in style April 30th, and we hope to see you there! The launch party will be held at Gigantic Brewing Company’s Taproom and Champagne Lounge in Southeast Portland (5224 SE 26th Ave) from 5:00pm – 9:00pm for art lovers 21 years and older. Come for the French-influenced hors d’oeuvres, but stay for the art exhibition, book signing, and champagne sabering! Truly, this one will be a night to remember. Il sera magnifique!
