Petit Collage Book Reading At Fiddlesticks
Tuesday, January 28, 2014
We are so excited to announce that Petit Collage founder, long-time Fiddlesticks friend, and celebrated San Francisco artist Lorena Siminovich will be dropping by the shop for a reading and signing of her just-released book "You Know What I Love."
Lorena told us that she wrote "You Know What I Love" as a love letter to her daughter Matilda, and, well, you know what WE love? This very special storybook! It's one sweet little girl's tribute to her most favorite of dolls; these best of friends spend the day peering out the window at big fat raindrops, singing very, very loudly, zipping to the mailbox on a bright yellow scooter, and even sending secret messages to each other when they're apart. What's not to love?
The book is illustrated in Lorena's characteristic collage style (if you've been to Fiddlesticks before, you've no doubt noticed her brightly-colored screen prints and collages hanging behind the counter). Each page is richly textured, and full of lovingly placed details. It's the perfect way to tell your own beloved little one how much you adore them during the month of Valentine's.
We hope you'll join us in the shop at 11 am on Sunday, February 9th. Lorena will read out loud to us all, and then sign your book with a flourish! (Books will be available for sale on the 9th, but snatch one up now if you want to fall in love a little early.) Snacks provided!
As an extra "I love you" from us, we'll be offering 20% off all in-store purchases and orders of Lorena's artwork on the day of the reading; we'll have her catalog on hand, and you've never seen such a delightful array of prints, collages, and posters.
Can't wait to see you on the 9th!
