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.
