On Friday, May 29th we held a popup gallery in the Salomon Room of the New York Public Library to celebrate the upcoming launch of the new NYPL ebook app containing Recovering the Classics covers! Thanks to an initiative with the White House, the app will be distributed to students and libraries across the country. With the help of our wonderful partners at NYPL, the National Book Foundation, the Digital Public Library of America (and many more) we were able to put on a great event in one of the nicest rooms we'd ever been in. It was attended by several hundred people in media and publishing -- including the chief operating officer of Macmillan's trade division, an executive vice president of The New York Times, and many folks attending the BookExpo America convention. Live music was provided by Daniel Park.
Checkout some photos from the event below, and remember, all the art is available for sale as posters, t-shirts, and more to support the artists involved!
America is great. The things that make it great are unique to each and every one of us, and deserve to be celebrated. In this political moment artists nationwide are harnessing their talents for good - illustrating what truly makes America great.
