Sepulculture Books

It's no longer a secret: Sepulculture is now publishing books.

I have started my own independent, DIY publishing company to be named Sepulculture Books and the first book will be published this December. While blogging about the book publishing industry, it seemed so easy to talk about the problems book publishing faces or how to fix them, how to make it more fair or just simply how to make sense of it. So I decided to put my money where my mouth was, and see if I knew what the hell I was talking about.

So far, so good.

The other reason for doing this is that it will allow me to work on fun projects that I would never have the chance to do in my corporate gig, and trust me, the first book I’m publishing is going to knock your socks off (and possibly the rest of your clothing too).

On December 6, 2006 Sepulculture will proudly publish DR. SKETCHY’S OFFICIAL RAINY DAY COLOURING BOOK by Molly Crabapple and John Leavitt. The book will be a full-color, fully illustrated paperback companion edition to the Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School cabaret life-drawing class that happens twice a month in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

To quote from our own marketing copy:

Dr. Sketchy's Official Rainy Day Colouring Book is one part DIY handbook, one part activity book on acid, and one part history of the Dr. Sketchy’s Revolution. To sweeten the broth, Molly Crabapple and John Leavitt have added dozens of photos, paper dolls, colouring book pages and puppets of burlesque models Amber Ray, Lolita Haze, Little Brooklyn, Audra Gwarskitty, and all your other favorite Dr. Sketchy's models. Much like popular Victorian cure-all tonics, Dr. Sketchy's Official Rainy Day Colouring Book is a natural cure for boredom, apathy, shingles, gout, sobriety, and erectile dysfunction. It can even buy you Love! (or at least explain how to hire her for an evening to strip down to her pasties). Lovingly illustrated, adorned with dirty humor and black wit, this book is just like James Joyce's Ulysses, except you won’t have to fake enjoying it.

The lovely Lady J has already pre-ordered her copy, and so can you...

And there's nothing more Sepulcultural than a huge....


We will be celebrating the release of DR. SKETCHY’S OFFICIAL RAINY DAY COLOURING BOOK at our book launch party hoted by The World Famous *BOB* at The Slipper Room on the Lower East Side on December 6, 2006 from 8pm-10pm.
