Big Down Under!

April 28, 2009

Given that we’ve got a New Zealander in the family, I kind of hoped that New Zealand Woman’s Weekly would be the first Oceanian magazine to pick up Book City Jackets but they were beaten to it by the Australians.  We are featured as a “Wish List” item in the May issue of Home Beautiful!

Gaining Some Momentum!

March 17, 2009

It’s been a great couple of weeks for Book City Jackets due, in large part, to this post over at Design*Sponge (and, in equally large part due to my week-long vacation).   No doubt you remember that I posted about an event hosted by D*S a couple weeks ago.  That post focused on the event and the talent but that was not the whole story.

While at the party I met Grace Bonney, the mastermind behind Design*Sponge.   We discussed her project — Design by the Book — and my project — Book City Jackets.  Grace was into our concept, suggested a couple Brooklynites who might be good for our Artist Editions and asked that I keep her in the BCJ loop.  And then last week (thanks to some PR work by our Art Department) Grace gave us some really generous blog love.

The D*S post was gratifying since Grace clearly “gets” what BCJ is about and it’s been exciting to see how people have reacted to the post.  Happily, I can report that people (who are not my mom) are into it!  Here are the blogosphere ripples:

So, as I said, it’s been pretty exciting.

And there’s more!  Our new website will be up soon and will be followed by our first sets of Artist Editions.  Email me or leave a comment if you’d like to be the first to know who our first group of artists will be!

Looking for Artists

March 10, 2009

We are looking for artists to participate in our Artists Edition series and just posted the following to craigslist.  Please forward to anyone who you think might be interested!

Brooklyn-based start-up, Book City Jackets, seeks to license work of up-and-coming artists for immediate production and release as part of a series of kraft paper book covers.

Book City Jackets are updated versions of the classic paperbag book cover and convert covered books into portable pieces of art.   Currently available via amazon.com and at Brooklyn design stores, Book City Jackets is expanding its product line in the coming weeks.

Please send sample images or link to portfolio and indicate which pieces are most relevant to this project. Credit will be given to participating artists.
