We're really excited to announce that were going to be releasing the second collection of artwork by Marissa Paternoster. The collection is entitled Naked Under The Arch and is a 40 page booklet professionally printed on high quality paper.
People familiar with Don Giovanni Records are probably already familiar with both Marissa Paternoster and her artwork. In addition to playing guitar and singing in Screaming Females and Noun, Marissa also does all of the Screaming Females artwork and has done artwork for a number of other bands on and off Don Giovanni.
The first printing of the booklets will include a signed and #d edition limited to 100 for mail order only, as well as a non-signed and numbered edition that will be available at Screaming Females shows and through our website. In addition, we are releasing a limited run of 100 copies of a book of artwork by Leslie Paternoster curated by Marissa. The only way to get this second book is by ordering one of the signed and numbered copies of Naked Under The Arch.
Signed and numbered editions of her first book sold out within 24 hours and the remaining copies sold out over the following months, so act fast!
Pre-orders for both editions are up now in our store. We are celebrating the release of the book with a month long gallery show at Gush in Philadelphia with an opening on February 13th!
