One of the many reasons why the Strand Rules! Bag Contest! Upcoming D+Q Events!

OK, people, there are many reasons why the Strand is one of the most storied, respected and famous bookstores in the world, as evident by the above immortalization in the Dupuy & Berberian story, first published in Monsieur Jean and translated and published in Drawn & Quarterly #5. Everything about them is great: great taste, great building, great location, great staff, and great books.

So when they called D+Q to sponsor the Strand Tote Bag Design Contest, we had to say yes. The contest is to be judged by previous bag artists, Art Spiegelman, Adrian Tomine, R. Sikoryak AND Françoise Mouly and Steven Heller!!!!! And the prizes are FANTASTIC! The winner not only gets their art on a Strand bag, but they receive $1000 of comics, and afternoon with Françoise at Toon Books, and $100 in free coffee! Second and Third prizes aren't too shabby either!

I'll take this time to announce two upcoming D+Q events at the Strand, including James Sturm's launch for Market Day on Thursday, April 8th and the NYC event for Daniel Clowes' Wilson on Wednesday, May 5th. Complete details here.

So to jog your memory here are the D+Q artist bags to date and on sale on the Strand site (and note there are a few unannounced gems to debut in the next year or so!):
