morris, the real book!

Hurrah, lookie look! My first hardback edition of Morris arrived in the post!!!
Doesn't he look smashing? There's even some sticky-up glossy raised bits over the green snot, so there's lots of texture on the stuff coming out of his nose, how great is that.

Morris the Mankiest Monster comes out October 1st, very exciting!

And I just found out from Viviane Schwarz about a shadow puppet show this Saturday night outside the National Theatre by Matthew Robins, I am so going to be there. I just saw this show on YouTube, Flyboy and the Haunted Snowman and it's one of the prettiest things ever.

Click here for Part 2
The other shadow puppets I've seen recently were by Kara Walker at an exhibition in the De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill-on-sea. Hers were amazing, but much more heavy-going, and I like Robins' lighter touch here.

Morris: Will you have copies for sale at Caption, or is it not available yet?

Argh, no, it doesn't come out til Oct 1st. Dang! But I'll check with marketing, just in case...

Darn, just talked with Lauren the publicist and she'd love to have a sneak-peek version out for Caption, but they won't even have the stock yet, so it's a no-go. Boo. But I'll bring my copy and show it off!

Looks very cool, looking forward to grabbing a copy and getting it signed in October!

Ewwww, sticky-up glossy raised bits over the green snot? Gross but awesome! I really looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of this book.

After you get your hands on it, you will have to use a wet-wipe to get all the snot off. ;-D

Congrats Sarah - Morris looks truly gross! Will pencil in a mention for the book in my Nov/Dec issue of tBkmag. Helen

Thanks so much, Helen! x

yay! Congrats! I was wondering if they were going to spot-varnish the globs of snot on the cover.
Jul. 29th, 2009 06:39 pm (UTC)
Oh, yeah! I was hoping they might even do those rubbery things, like the ones you throw at the window, so the bogey could be pulled and snap back. But that will have to be on the Deluxe Edition.

Looks awesome! Congrats!!

SHINY SNOT!!! I shall pre-order that one ASAP.
Yay for Flyboy, I hope it won't rain :)
Jul. 29th, 2009 06:39 pm (UTC)
Ooh yeah, it really tipped it down a few minutes ago! Fingers crossed...

I like to think you named the monster after me and my wife but after the textured boogers I think I've changed my mind! Looks good Sarah.

Re: Mooooorris
Thanks, Tim! Giles named him, not me, but I have no doubt he had you and your famous bogeys in mind! ;-D
Jul. 30th, 2009 04:53 pm (UTC)
Wow! It looks great, Sarah! And spot UV snot? Nice!
Jul. 30th, 2009 07:31 pm (UTC)
It's classy!
