Lela M. Stickney, Ferbruary 15th, 1921 cover

Lela M. Stickney, Ferbruary 15th, 1921

12x16"

A few years ago, Chloe Eudaly purchased a 100-year old autograph book from a rare book dealer called Your Hidden Skeleton. The directions were simple -- "Sign your name with full pen of ink, on folded line... Fold Paper while ink is still wet... Be careful to dot the i, and to place the period at the end of the name." --but results were otherwordly, revealing images that look like alien x-rays replete with wings, faces, antennae and other appendages. We've given these "skeletons" a new life, plucking the most compelling examples from their yellowing pages , gently enhancing the images, and creating one-of-a-kind heirloom quality prints that will last another hundred years.

Presumably inspired by the 19th century parlor game, Blotto, these novelty autograph books(there's at least one other version called The Ghosts of My Friends) pre-date the Rorschach Test by several years and involve the very unique element of an individual's own handwriting which lends a layer of meaning and infinite variation to the game

Prints are archival pigment on cotton rag paper, edition of 1

Bindweed cover

Bindweed

By Jon McNaught

Lithograph, edition of 30, 19cmx27cm, Somerset Satin paper.

Reading Frenzy is pleased to present UK artist, Jon McNaught, for a one weekend exhibit (April 26-29, reception on Friday, April 26th, 6pm-9pm) coinciding with the 10th Annual Stumptown Comics Fest at One Grand Gallery (1000 E Burnside). Passing Time is a collection of suburban landscapes and everyday vignettes, which provide a deeper exploration of the environments of McNaught's comics; from the windswept shores of Pebble Island to the suburban streets of Dockwood. These prints are loving tributes to ordinary places, from bus stops, to empty beaches, based on quiet corners of Britain. This show collects together screen prints, lithographs, and linocuts, alongside selected original artwork from Dockwood.

Jon McNaught lives in Bristol, England where he works as a printmaking instructor at the University of the West of England. He is the author of the graphic novellas Birchfield Close, Pebble Island and the recently released Dockwood, for which was awarded the Prix de Revelation which "recognises the work of an author's early artistic career" at the 40th Festival International de la Bande Dessinee d'Angouleme.

"There are few younger comics artists with whom I feel a genuine aesthetic kinship, but the radiant and glowing Dockwood is Jon McNaught's loveliest argument yet for the beauty of just being alive. It's a gem." -- Chris Ware

Special thanks to Nobrow, Stumptown Comics Fest, and One Grand Gallery.
