Kati Rapia just won the Finnish State Prize for Comics (Sarjakuvataiteen valtionpalkinto)!
The prize is dedicated to her livelong dedication to comics attached to her personal style. And specially to her last book "PYRSTÖTÄHTI ja Maailman Lopun Meininki", published recently in her country.
Our beloved Kati Rapia has a new book in Finland! It's called "PYRSTÖTÄHTI ja Maailman Lopun Meininki" and it tells the story of Sigfrid Aronius Forsius, a multi-talented scientist and artist from the XVI century. The book has been co-written with Juha Hurme and has been published by the Finnish publishing house Teos. It doesn't include translation, but the most comprehensive collectors can buy it here.
We'll be at the DIY zine and music fair Autoplacer Festival in Móstoles (Madrid) this Saturday. Come meet us from 12am to 12pm!
We improved our website! And we'll keep improving it these next months.

We recommend you Kati Rapia's new book, "Käsi keittiössä"! It's her first book since "Yellow Bird".
It's a recipe book illustrated with her wonderful drawings, and Napa's hard cover edition is beautiful.
The book is in Finnish, but they promise there'll be an English version soon.

Tomorrow we'll repeat the experience at GRAF festival, at Mutuo gallery in Barcelona. There, our author Tamayo will come at 12h to sign copies of his book "Doctor Gómez". Come and say hi!
BOGA is the pocket gallery that Michele Siquot has lead for over 10 years. It's a portable space that promotes small format art.
Today the exhbition "La preponderancia de lo pequeño" starts at the Museo Histórico Provincial de Rosario (Argentina), in which the BOGA artwork, coupled with the Museum's miniature collection, will reflect a new view to the Museum's patrimony.
Very recommended! We wish we could be there.
