We're pleased to be the current featured publisher in the Chin Music Press showroom at Pike Place Market in Seattle. They'll be selling all of our titles and Overcup-related items throughout the holiday season.
You’ll find great gift ideas from Overcup Press and Chin Music Press in the showroom for everyone on your holiday shopping list. There are books for all kinds of readers on your list. It's a store full of Chin Music Press's lovely, thoughtfully designed books covering lots of reading territory—fiction, art, cultural studies, politics, memoirs, food, essay collections and photography.
And look for these Overcup Press items:
Our latest release, Ice Cream Work by Naoshi, has been compared to a psychedelic strawberry shortcake for its bright colors and surreal images. Naoshi works exclusively with sand to create the images in the book using a Japanese technique known as Sunae.
Chin Music also has a full assortment of Naoshi’s cards, pins and DIY sunae kits.
The showroom has paired The Tall Trees of Tokyo and The Tall Trees of Portland art books (both by Matt Wagner of Portland’s Hellion Gallery) with a cash-and-carry print show featuring prints by artists from both books like Portland’s AJ Fosik and Souther Salazar and Tokyo artists Hikari Shimoda and SAL. Each book features artists from each eponymous city, a sampling of their art, and a handwritten survey answering questions about their lives and their city.
They also have signed copies of The Field Guide to Drinking in America: A Traveler’s Handbook to State Liquor Laws by Niki Ganong in the Chin Music Press showroom. This book makes a perfect gift for discerning tipplers, armchair travelers, history lovers and trivia buffs.
Illustrator and author Cole Gerst’s Buckminster Fuller: Poet of Geometry has been called “One of the most beautiful books about a designer, ever.” by Solidsmack. The book is a welcome gift for anyone on your list with a solid eye towards design, an interest in future thinking, or a passion for sustainability.
We’ll see you at the market this holiday season!
