(from Bundled, Tossed, Untied & Stacked: Publishing News, 9 June 2015)
Good news from the small reprint house Hermes Press. They'll be publishing one of those giant history books that also serves as an art book -- a hybrid format used by Fantagraphics and IDW a bunch over the last half-decade. Their subject is Alex Raymond, and their historian is Ron Goulart. It's fully licensed from King Features and should be 300 pages with 400 illustrations. Alex Raymond: An Artistic Journey: Adventure, Intrigue and Romance will be out in October and will retail for $75. Please get me one for Christmas.

"Rip" and "Pagan". There's a couple of examples of what Bertie Wooster used to call "some raw work at the font".
