Arcana Books Hosts A Shindig For The Ice Plant’s 10th Anniversary
November 12, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On Saturday, November 12th from 5:00 to 7:00PM, please join Arcana: Books on the Arts for The Ice Plant’s 10th Anniversary Party. The evening’s celebration will feature book signings for ED PANAR: Animals That Saw Me Volume Two and MIKE SLACK: Walking In Place 1 – New Orleans, with special appearances by many of The Ice Plant’s own authors and artists, including Ron Jude, Bettina Hubby, Michael Schmelling, Seth Lower, Antoine Wilson, and Melissa Catanese – plus Margaritas (Mike’s own mix) and the accordion stylings of Arcana’s Erin Schneider!
The Ice Plant began producing artist books in 2006, and has been publishing significant illustrated and photography books and other fine printed matter for the following decade. The dynamic duo behind the press – Tricia Gabriel and Mike Slack – would like to thank all their artists and loyal customers for making these ten years possible.
ED PANAR: Animals That Saw Me: Volume Two – The sequel – at last! Pairing a selection of new work and newly discovered gems from Ed Panar’s vast archive with an original essay on “being seen” by philosopher Timothy Morton, this volume digs deeper into the question: “Why do we assume that it’s only us who does the looking?”
MIKE SLACK: Walking in Place 1: New Orleans – Co-published in an edition of six hundred copies with Perimeter Editions, Melbourne, this is the first in Mike Slack’s new series of standalone volumes; each a pocket-sized ‘ambient travelogue’ of a particular geographic (or ‘psychogeographic’) location. This installment intermingles local fauna, architectural details, curious street cats, and urban ephemera, all skewed toward the sublime in the peculiar sunlight of New Orleans.
