Another Valentina exhibit now in Italy
There is another big Valentina exhibit in Italy. "Guido Crepax: Portrait of an Artist" opened June 20 at the Palazzo Reale, Piazza del Duomo, 12 - Milan. It runs through September 15. After only a few days, the exhibit has generated a fair amount of media coverage, including this piece on La Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno and another on the AffairItalian website. Be sure and check them out. The latter piece contains not only a slide show, but also a brief Italian TV clip which contains a couple of lovely images of Louise Brooks.
The exhibit is not the only big Louise Brooks related news out of Italy. Amazon.it announced that Archive Crepax has chosen Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) to publish the digital version of the saga of Valentina, the ever-popular comic book series created by Guido Crepax. The first episode, The Curve Lesmahagow: Part One, is now available. Upcoming is The Curve Lesmahagow: Part Two, Hello Valentina and many others. The entire collection will be available exclusively on the Kindle Store for downloading and reading on the Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD and, thanks to the free apps for reading Kindle, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Android smartphones and tablets.
