Spartan Holiday No. 1: Shanghai Pictorial
Sound the trumpet!
As of today, we are equipped to take online orders for the first issue of Spartan Holiday. The first installment covers my visit to Shanghai last year, and blends travel reportage, autobiography and reflections on local visual culture, including an architectural infatuation with cupolas, then and now.
Those in the St. Louis area will be able to purchase copies at local bookstores and comic shops. The zine will be available at Star Clipper Comics on the University City loop in the next few days. I’ll issue an update on that front in a week or so.
Within the next week, Spartan Holiday will also be available at the Minnesota Center for For Book Arts bookstore in Minneapolis.
If you have an interest in stocking or distributing the zine in your corner of the world, please contact me here.
