Kramers Ergot 7
posted:
 
Kramers Ergot 7 is the most ambitious comics anthology of the past decade. While previous issues of Kramers explored an innovative blend of art and comics, this collection focuses on expanding the boundaries of the narrative comics page. KE7's massive 16 x 21 inch page size has allowed the artists to tell stories at a scope not seen since the expansive Sunday newspaper comics of the early twentieth century. Including over 50 of the world's most esteemed cartoonists, it draws on the talents of established cartoonists, newcomers, elegant stylists, and unpredictable innovators such as Daniel Clowes, Gabrielle Bell, Matt Groening, C.F., Chris Ware, Jaime Hernandez, C. Tyler, Blanquet, Ted May, Adrian Tomine, Johnny Ryan, Kim Deitch, and many others. This special edition of Kramers Ergot 7 comes with a letterpress plate designed by Sammy Harkham & signed by many of your favorite artists. Limited quantity of 200. Only available through Buenaventura Press, Family in Los Angeles, or at the Alternative Press Expo 2008. Buenaventura Press. 16 x 21 in. 96 pp. Full Color. Hardcover. November 2008

 Kramers Ergot 7 Book Tour
 The Kramers Ergot 7 international book tour kicks off this weekend with a signing at Family in Los Angeles. Original art from the book will be exhibited (pricelist available upon request) and a truckload of KE7 artists will be on hand to sign copies of the book including: Martin Cendreda, Matt Groening, Sammy Harkham, Tim Hensley, Jaime Hernandez, Walt Holcombe, Geoff McFetridge, John Pham, Ron Regé, Jr., Johnny Ryan, Souther Salazar, and Josh Simmons. Come feast your eyes on Kramers Ergot 7 in all its full-figured voluptuous glory. This is your last chance to purchase an advance copy of the book, weeks before its release.
 If you can't make it to Family this weekend, our family will be coming to you. Sammy Harkham is loading up his car with books and voyaging across the U.S. and Canada in the beginning of December with stops in Baltimore, Pittsburgh, NYC, Providence, Montreal, Toronto, and Chicago. Various artists will be signing advance copies of the book at each event. The signed and numbered limited edition bookplate is only available through the Buenaventura Press website and during the tour, making this the ideal holiday gift for all of the little nerdlings on your list.
