McSweeneys Newbies via Chronicle

Thursday, 2 July 2009

Another McSweeneys gem just out through Chronicle books... a set of 100 postcards called 'Greetings from the Oceans Sweaty Face' (completely lovable already!) It's divided into sections (Across the Miles I Love You So; I Can’t Stop Thinking About Us; Care/Concern; More than Words; and Friendship) and includes artwork, photos, self-contained short stories, and other oddities from contributors such as Marcel Dzama, David Byrne, Chris Ware, Charles Burns, and Jonathan Safran Foer.

{Charles Burns, Woman without a Face, 2003 & Esther Pearl Waston, The Past, 2006}

According to their blog too... Chronicle have two more books in the pipeline with the folks at McSweeney’s. More Things Like This, has nearly 300 images and interviews that explore the intersection of text, humor, and illustration in art created by cartoonists, writers, musicians, and fine artists.

And then another next April, which sounds the most exciting one of all...
a beautiful book celebrating the 11th (or 12th) anniversary of McSweeney’s through the lens of their award-winning art and design work. The book will visually showcase their publications and creations and tell the quirky/brainy/ semi-accidental inside story of their creation through hundreds of photos and illustrations and interviews with the staff plus writers and artists such as Rick Moody, Sarah Vowell, John Hodgeman, Lawrence Weschler, Michael Chabon, Chris Ware, Ben Katchor, Charles Burns, and many more.
