Quimbys Bookstore 25th T-shirt by Gabby Schulz $15.99Modeled by the artist himself above. Celebrate two and a half decades of the weirdest bookstore on the planet by wearing a Quimby’s t-shirt designed by comics artist and Quimby’s employee extraordinaire Mr. Gabby Schulz (aka Ken Dahl), author of such fine books as Sick, Monsters and Welcome to the Dahl House, and who is responsible for many of the winning signs around the store. These shirts were printed locally, by our friends at Sharprint Decorated Apparel, and we couldn’t be happier with the work they’ve done. These chino-printed 4 color babies come on a white shirt and declare to the world, Quimby’s has been “tenaciously resisting the 21st Century Since 1991.”

chriswaresmallprintbothsides

Chris Ware Quimby’s 25th Print in 2 sizes!
It’s a model of our store that you can make your very own in-house Quimby’s to stare at any time you want. It also explains, in the poetic way that only Mr. Ware can, the story of the store, his relationship with it, and some of the key players in the store: including the original and current owners as well as the manager. Don’t miss this chance to build your very own Quimby’s! PLUS! The smaller edition of this print has an Acme Novelty Library comic on the back by Mr. Ware, originally published in Chicago’s very NewCity in 1996, featuring Jimmy Corrigan learning about freak culture here at this fine establishment, then disseminating his first Xeroxed foray into fringe publishing.

We are proud to unveil it.

Starting out his career on the Andy Williams Show as a member of the Good Time Singers, Smith next teamed up with Chris Ducey in the duo Chris & Craig, then the Penny Arkade, a talented group mentored and produced by Mike Nesmith of the Monkees.

Library Excavations #3 Periodical Business by Marc Fischer (Half Letter Press) $6.00 – From the publisher’s website, written by Marc Fischer: “The Chicago Public Library’s Harold Washington Library Center is home to a vast collection of bound business periodicals. The many shelves are filled with titles­ that will be foreign to industry outsiders. Some date back to the late 1800s. These are primarily publications sent directly to business executives and their company offices, or to institutional libraries, rather than newsstands. The beauty of a public library is that visitors with zero credentials can enjoy decades’ worth of these insider publications, without ever improving our work wardrobes or falsifying our credentials. This booklet is also an appreciation of the binderies that collate and sew these magazines into indestructible bound volumes. The foil stamped titles on the hard covers have a leveling effect, allowing us to consider Modern Power Systems alongside Quick Frozen Foods, as though power plants and pizza are equally important. These photos were taken in July and August 2016. I hope that they will entice others to explore these periodicals, and interrogate the value systems, ideologies, and visual pleasures they contain.”
