Hallooo + Happy Spring!!!

Pegacorn Press will be tabling this Sunday at the Come Together Music Festival at Moma PS1 in Long Island City, NYC. It's a quick day (12-6pm), but should be exciting—more information can be found via HERE.
 

The LA Art Book Fair this year was AMAZING! The folks at Printed Matter are professionals at putting together a great fair and this year was probably my favorite so far. It's always a pleasure to participate in such an excellent event with so many inspiring artists + publishers, but the folks who come out for it are so stellar as well, which really makes it special.

While at the fair, I was did a short interview with Paper Mag, along with some of my favorite ladies I know through self publishing: Heather Benjamin, Tamara SantibaƱez, Girls Like Us, Sarah Faith Gottesdiener, Nicole Killian, and Emma Kolhmann. If you aren't familiar with these babes, you can find out more about them HERE to get an idea of what everyone is up to.

Also while I was in LA, I was also able to do an interview with Nicole Georges, queer-feminist comic icon and animal-lover extraordinaire. She is a prolific illustrator, author, and does the podcast Sagittarian Matters. We went out crystal shopping and then laid in bed petting her producer, Ponyo (a Chihuahua—see photo below), while chatting about the current state of politics, relationships with technology, punk, punk medical myths, and all around DIY ethos. It was super fun and if you have time and want to check it out, you can find the podcast HERE.

The Pegacorn Press Etsy is open again, with some new listings, which includes the second edition of Bar Dykes, as well as reprints of Let Go, Let Gaia, and Primordial Cooch. A new batch of GODDESS hankies will be listed in the next week or so, for those who are interested.

There are many things in the works and I hope that by the next post, I'll be able to share some of them. In the meantime, thank you for your continual support and I hope that you are enjoying the beginning of Spring, wherever you are!

XOXO,
Caroline Paquita//Pegacorn Press
