BROADSIDE 11

PRESIDENT TRUMP’S CABINET by Mark Axelrod
With the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States a foregone conclusion, he has already decided upon a cabinet. Since he doesn’t have the time to read or vet anyone because it would take up too much precious Twitter time, he has bypassed short-listing anyone and selected these people based on what he’s heard about them. So, these are the people he has decided would make up his really, really smart Cabinet.

BLACK SCAT BROADSIDES are full color, printed on prime 80# UV-coated,

Available in flaming full color, this collection of matchbook art by Norman Conquest includes reproductions of mixed media multiple editions, one-of-a kinds, and virtual creations produced over the years.

In 1989, while a fiery debate over flag-burning raged in Washington, D.C., the artist created his notorious “Beuyscout Matchbook” — a  multiple edition of 100 examples.

Alphonse Rides Again!

masks-cover

original-edOn July 4, 2012, we published Alphonse Allais’s MASKS in a limited edition of 50 copiesthe first title in our Absurdist Texts & Documents series. The chapbook quickly sold out and, today, is a coveted collector’s item. Since we’ve received many requests to reprint the book, we’re pleased to announce a revised and expanded edition. Translated from the French, adapted and illustrated by Norman Conquest, this new volume also features a most Allaisian introduction & notes on the text by the great Doug Skinner. Originally published in France under the title Un drame bien parisien (1890), this darkly humorous tale is quintessential Allaisa pataphysical text admired by the Surrealists (André Breton included it in his seminal Anthologie de l’humour noir). It was also celebrated by the French group Oulipo, and has been the subject of scholarly studies by the writer and semiotician Umberto Eco, Francis Corblin, and others. excerpt This is the first illustrated edition of this mini masterpiece. If you missed out on our first edition, now’s you chance to own a copy. MASKS Alphonse Allais Translation & illustrations by Norman Conquest With an introduction & notes on the text by Doug Skinner Absurdist Texts & Documents No. 1 Revised  & Expanded Second Edition 50 pp., perfect-bound; illustrated; Special limited launch price:  $12.00    (*$14 after June 4th)
