Indie Bookstore Day Exclusives for Blog

Saturday, May 2nd is Independent Bookstore Day! Based on Record Store Day and test driven in California last year, Indie Bookstore Day is a national celebration of all the joys of indie bookstores. We’ve got a lot of fun planned for the day (stay tuned for more info about that) AND we’ve got some very cool, bookish items that will be available exclusively in store on that day. Here’s what you’ll be able to get at PSB on May 2nd.

Roxane Gay Chapbook
Roxane Gay is a force of nature. We’ll have a mini-collection of essays on books, reading, and the world of contemporary literature by Roxane Gay available as a limited edition, signed chapbook.

The Finders Keepers Broadside

This color broadside from Stephen King’s forthcoming novel, Finders Keepers, is a love letter to passionate readers, written in King’s own hand. Suitable for framing.

Hyperbole & A Half Broadside
For days when it just doesn’t seem worth it to clean all the things. Bring a little Allie Brosh home with this signed four-color print from her remarkable debut, Hyperbole and a Half. This high quality print is suitable for framing. (Right after you get the dogs in. OK, you can frame it before you get the dogs in.)

I Love to Read “Bunsie.”
Made of 100% soft European quality cotton. This onesie has snaps at the bottom making it easy to change and dress little ones. Each onesie comes with a specially designed hang-tag reading “Made exclusively in support of indie bookstores for Independent Bookstore Day 2015” with IBD logo. Start ‘em early!

Huck Finn Literary Map

A lush, hand-drawn road map depicting Huck’s river journey. The map, which will appear in Plotted: A Literary Atlas, has been extended and expanded upon for IBD.

Bad Citizen Stencil

Illegitimi non carborundum! Suitable for use as a stencil or as a stand-alone art piece, this year’s Bad Citizen stencil quotes Margaret Atwood’s poem “Spelling”: “A word after a word after a word is power.”

A Literary Map of the Seas

A hand drawn fine art print of 24 great books set in the ocean. Includes classics from The Odyssey and Moby Dick to modern favorites like The Life of Pi, Plover, Pippi in the South Seas, and Swamplandia!. A full-color, gallery quality giclee print suitable for framing.

And now, some fine print in regular print. All the items will be available on a first come first served basis in the store only and only on May 2nd. Because we will have a finite number of these items, we will be limiting purchases to one each per customer.(So no snapping up all the Roxane Gay chapbooks to sell on Ebay.) See you on Independent Bookstore Day!
