'TOYLAND' by Al Columbia

TOYLAND by Al Columbia

Pim & Francie is already receiving advance praise from folks like Spike Jonze.  Jim Woodring’s drawing group, Friends of the Nib, is calling it “book of the year“.

Al’s always working on something new and amazing, whether it’s music, filmmaking, comics, or in this case, painting.  Al showed me a photo of this new painting he was working on and I became immersed in the labyrinth of frayed facade and haunting beauty.  We reprinted it as the centerpiece of the new issue of Diamond Comics, available now!

To commemorate the release of Al Columbia’s new book, Floating World has teamed with the artist to produce a limited edition series of archival prints of this latest painting, Toyland.  The giclee prints are on museum quality paper measuring 18″x24″; the artwork is 15″x20″.

We only made 25 copies of this incredible image, and each was signed and numbered by the artist at his recent book release party at the Fantagraphics store.  Orders will be filled in numerical order starting with number 3 of 25 (#1 and #2 already sold).  They will be shipped securely in a tube.  Head over to Floating World Comics’ website to place your order.

From Pim & Francie #6. Al Columbia has the rare gift to suggest an entire story, an entire world with just a single image. He is currently compiling and re-contextualizing hundreds of these images and story fragments from his archives to be published by Fantagraphics Books in THE LAND OF BROKEN HEARTS Volume One – Pim & France (THE GOLDEN BEAR DAYS).

((ed. note — interesting coincidence with the big numbers post earlier today. but really, isn’t everything coincident? isn’t everything happening at exactly the same time? maybe now it’s just more apparent with the scope of the internet.))
