Celebrate publishing’s independent spirit with over 100 indie publishers from around the world, all under one roof, selling books you can’t get at your big box bookstore. The Indie and Small Press Book Fair is one of New York City’s favorite annual literary events. It’s free, open to all, and packed with an exciting line-up of public events. Full event schedule and exhibitor list can be found here.
Bonus: In addition to all the wonderful wares and events, Illustration Alum and Faculty member R. Sikoryak will be giving a lecture on Saturday, December 6th, 2 p.m. Here are the details:
Masterpiece Comics: A Slide Show with R. Sikoryak
Comic book artist and Parsons instructor R. Sikoryak presents literature as seen through the cartoon medium. His slideshow explores the intersection of “high art” literature and “low art” comic strips as seen in the works by cartoonists who have adapted classic novels and plays. Sikoryak (whose own work includes adaptations of Dostoyevsky and Emily Bronte) discusses the history of these reinterpretations with images from over ninety years of comic strips, comic books, and graphic novels.
