MoCCA Fest 2019: Amy Kurzweil's Flying Couch

Part of the challenge of navigating MoCCA Fest is making sure one has the flexibility to go after things one never expected one was going to find. Case in point for me was coming across New Yorker cartoonist Amy Kurzweil signing copies of her graphic memoir Flying Couch (2016). I had been wanting to pick up a copy of this book for a while now and clearly this was my golden opportunity. I don't exactly remember what I said to her—surely something smooth and sophisticated—but on the basis of her inscription she seemed somewhat unsure whether this personalized copy of her book was ever going to end up on this blog. Amy  Kurzweil, there was never any doubt.

Note:  Today represents Amy Kurzweil's first appearance on the old blog. As one might expect I'm looking for examples of her original art, preliminary sketches, and uniquely personalized books to include in future posts. 

I have been systematically going through my acquisitions at MoCCA Fest 2019, although I do have other things planned for the next three days. Don't worry, the blog has plenty of time to get through all this.
