THE LATEST NEWS FROM THE BOOKSHOP…

Revising the Bible

“For the last two years, while #teachevolution ricocheted harmlessly through the digital echo-chamber, [artist Jenifer] Wightman has been using the master’s font to footnote the master text, convincing the most august libraries on the planet, including the Vatican’s own Apostolic Library, to add a page of Darwinian science to Christianity’s origin of the species. Were it packaged as an app or a Twitter feed, you might call her project disruptive. But because it’s print— hand-printed letterpress no less—it is somehow even more subversive.”

Illustrated Classics by Pope, Shimizu & Sienkiewicz

“At Beehive Books, we have always admired great book-craft — handsome volumes with hand-sewn signatures, tipped-in plates and sterling print quality. Such gorgeous illustrated literature has become a rare bird in the quick-and-dirty landscape of modern mass production. So we’re launching this series of classic literary masterworks, full to the brim with stunning artwork by the greatest visual storytellers in the world, in cloth-bound heirloom editions designed to be read and reread, experienced, and treasured.”

A lovely article about Ruth Abernethy, who will be joining us at the store tomorrow evening at 6:30pm to share her work, “Life and Bronze.” Ruth says, “If people love the characters you’ve installed and the gestures you’ve created are authentic, then they see real neighbourhood characters, and they are loved and protected.” We hope you’ll join us tomorrow evening!

“Librarian Chloé Pascual has since reached out to The Cut to take credit for rearranging this display at a Barnes & Nobel in Long Beach, California. ‘I was acting in my role as a cheeky bookstore customer,’ she explained.” Ha ha ha ha hilarious. Book buyers are the best people.
