NEW: Kuš! special issue "3 X 3"
For this issue we planned to make an experiment: 9 contemporary Latvian artists from the fields of photography, design, sculpture, painting, and other art forms Arnis Balčus, Ivars Drulle, Dace Džeriņa, Ernests Kļaviņš, Romans Korovins, Kate Krolle, Daiga Krūze, Krišs Salmanis and Evita Vasiļjeva where invited by us and took up the challenge to create comics. Most of them made a comics for the very first time. The result: 3x3 unconventional stories on 9 pages each collected in one rather experimental comics book. The beautiful design of the book was done by Zigmunds Lapsa.
Some sample pics:
Format: A5 (approx. 6" x 8"), 100 pages, full-color, stiched binding, french flips, English and Latvian, released in July 2011.
The book is now available for the special introduction price of 3x3 dollars including shipping in our webshop, and soon also in Latvian bookstores for 3.30 Lats.
