Seeing Calvino: Books That Won't Be, Exhibitions That Will

(Reposting this from our Seeing Calvino tumblr. Joe Kuth wrote it, but it's a good summary of where we stand on the project and what the future holds in terms of publishing the work, showing the art, and more Calvino illustrations.)

Our original plan when beginning this tumblr was to eventually self-publish a book collection of all of our Invisible Cities illustrations. No official announcement was made, but we’ve all had enough conversations with others about it, both in person and online, that it seems wise to let all of our friends and followers know where that stands.

Now that the work is finished, and after making a few inquiries and having some positive conversations with the Calvino estate, we have decided that any physical publication of these images is simply not possible. The Calvino estate owns the original text and all rights associated with its reproduction so, while we had hoped to come to an agreement, the final decision is theirs, and we respect that. So this project will remain a tumblr alone, for the time being.

We are still excited to be illustrating Cosmicomics here soon, and some other Calvino themed artwork may appear here as well. And there are a few other things in the works regarding Invisible Cities to look forward to:

-An exhibit of our originals from this tumblr entitled Seeing Calvino: Invisible Cities at the main branch of the Cincinnati Public Library later this year. This exhibit will be free and open to the public, more details still to come.

-A projected exhibit of our Invisible Cities at the Eutropia Festival in Rome sometime this summer, details to come.

- Original art sales. At some point after the Library exhibit we will begin selling some of the originals, which we’ll announce here.

So please keep an eye on us here at the tumblr, we will report back when we have more information to pass along.
