Kevin McNamee-Tweed: Books

August 1, 2014 6pm - 11pm
Part of First Friday events
Little Berlin Annex, Philadelphia, PA

An ongoing series of drawings of fake books. This project was first presented at Co-Lab Projects in Austin, Texas in June of 2014, where the work was displayed in a fake bookstore setting with a dark walnut-colored bookseller’s counter built by the artist, real hanging plants, fake flyers and ephemera often found at used bookstores, and other real bookstore clichés. 

A publication of the complete collection of book drawings is forthcoming from Molasses Books (NY), Farewell Bookstore (Austin), and Raw Paw (Austin) in partnership with the artist.
