Tote That Bag, Enter That Contest


The Strand Book Store is partnering with the School of Visual Arts,
Drawn & Quarterly and Fantagraphics Books and Toon Books to host a tote bag design
contest. Artists from around the
world are invited to submit original illustrations featuring the Strand
Book Store.

In June 2007, the Strand unveiled the first Artist Tote Bag:
Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman loaned his iconic Maus
image for the first time ever to celebrate the Strand’s 80th birthday.
The Strand then partnered with artists each year, including Adrian
Tomine, Seth and R. Sikoryak, creating the Strand’s Artist Tote Series.

Now, the Strand Book Store wants to give emerging artists
the opportunity to have their artwork featured on a Strand tote bag. Go here for competition information.  (Lettering by Andrew Schaff)
