If you’ve been procrastinating on your holiday shopping, Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is the perfect place to painlessly complete this annual ritual. The store stocks a delightfully diverse selection of comix, graphics novels and badass books, with many exquisite gifts under $20. Among them…
Fante Bukowski by Noah van Sciver is a wildly entertaining and cleverly conceived story by one of the masters of alternative American comix. Lucy Knisley chronicles her adventures on a European book tour in the engaging memoir Age of License. At under 10 bucks, Charlie Brown’s Christmas Stocking is the perfect stocking stuffer (and you’ll save an additional 20% on all Peanuts products at the store through Christmas Eve.)
Charles Burns has a beautiful new sketchbook, Incubation, under $10 from our friends at Pigeon Press. Our colleagues at Koyama Press have several affordable new titles including Dressing by Michael DeForge. The store prides itself on a comprehensive line of small press and handcrafted comix from locals like Kelly Froh, Marc Palm, Robyn Jordan, R. Thies, Tom van Deusan, Eroyn Franklin, Max Clotfelter, David Lasky, Ben Horak, Colleen Frakes, Tatiana Gill, Mita Mahato, and many more.
Bonus: Store staffer Janice Headley will provide last minute shoppers with free gift wrapping this Sunday. Fantagraphics Bookstore is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle’s colorful Georgetown arts community. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110. Happy Holidays!
