Michael Cho Launch at TYPE Books this Wednesday!

Dear Tronntonians, come to this!

Want to know why? Well I think the Globe and Mail, National Post, and Toronto Life may be able to tell you.

"The beauty of Cho's work lies in the often ignored: an old AC unit hanging out a window, the scrawl of graffiti left on a garage door, a rooftop satellite dish pointing at the stars, a streetlamp illuminating the darkness." -- Mark Medley, The National Post

"Cho's delicately coloured, fastidiously detailed drawings and paintings of downtown alleys and depopulated streets ... aren't scenes you'd find in a tourist brochure, but they're immediately familiar to the millions of us who take shortcuts through these hidden mazes." -- Ian Daffern, Toronto Life

And if I need to spell it out for you a little more simply, Back Alleys is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S. So hit up that launch party at TYPE Books's Queen St location (883 Queen St W. opposite Trinity Bellwoods Park, but I don't need to tell you that!) tomorrow night, Wednesday May 23rd from 6 to 8 pm. There'll be an exhibit of original artwork from the book, snacks, refreshments, and the opportunity to get a book signed by the very friendly Mr. Cho himself.

Everyone else: look, I know it seems like all the fun is being hoarded by Toronto, but there's good news. Within Canada, copies of Back Alleys should be hitting shelves by the end of the week! Those of you in the US of A have to wait just a little bit longer: books should be in store by June 4th.
