So it has been way too long since I last updated this blog....please excuse me!!
It's time to start posting what we've been preparing, I will do that one by one.
To start, I would like to announce the publication of a new book from our Tiny Person label:
Nice Coffee Time by Liz Clayton.
For info please go here
Please join Liz for a chit chat and some refreshments as her book of coffee photo documentary hits American shores!
At the end of last year, we published this book (in Japanese) by one of Japan's best music critic/ writer, Kenichi Yasuda. It's a collection of the best of his works from 2002 to 2012.
It's on the top of our list of "Books that must be translated into English asap."

Trick or Treat everyone.
It's been a very long summer here in Tokyo and yesterday, I couldn't believe to find mosquitos still flying around in my back yard as we are about to enter the month of November.
September/October has been keeping us busy editing a book of Kenichi Yasuda, one of the greatest cultural critic alive today in Japan (sorry, this title will only be made available in Japanese as of NOW). But now it's time to share with you what's new and upcoming here at Presspop.
First, tote bag fair of great independent book stores of USA is still going on at Parco Book Centerat Shibuya showing cool totes and explaining about each store such as Green Apple, Aardvark, Moe's Books, Ooga Booga, Quimby's and much much more.
This will continue on into great independent book stores of Europe from around mid November so please stop by if you are looking for some info on cool books and nice limited totes.
Next at our Presspop Gallery space located in the same Parco Book Center, we will be featuring the arts/comics scene of Canada starting from November 15th to December 2nd:
Canada Comic Arts
Genevieve Castree Solo Exhibit
The Toronto Comics Arts Festival crew, artists, and publishers will be in store on November 18th from 19:00 to discuss the Canadian comics/arts/publishing scene which we think will be an extremely rare and interesting event.
And last but not least, our new limited SoF'Boy totes are on sale now freshly delivered from India. They are made with 100% organic cotton. Our last SoF totes sold out fast so get em while they last!
