At this year's Mocca Art Festival, I'll be spending time at the Act-i-vate table, F27, and while I'm there I'll be signing copies of The Act-i-vate Primer as well as selling two limited edition posters. Each poster (13"x19") sells for $20 or $35 for both. Buy any book at the Act-i-vate table and a poster goes for $15! Each poster is signed and includes a sketch.
Mocca is this weekend and Act-i-vate will be representin'! At table 311, you'll be able to find among a cornucopia of coolness, the entire Act-i-vate Primer available for your perusal. We've assembled a binder of the contents of the much anticipated new book so come on by the table, chat with Act-i-vators and take a flip through our new book coming in October 2009!
I'll be hanging out at the table throughout the weekend so please say, "hi!".
Even more Mocca info including signing schedules after the jump!
