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.
