Book Launch and Gallery Show for The Resurrectionist in Philadelphia on June 6!

Posted by Blair Thornburgh

Philadelphia! On June 6th, come out and join author E. B. Hudspeth and Quirk Books to celebrate the release of The Resurrectionist at Indy Hall!

Set in Philadelphia, The Resurrectionist is a cross between Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Gray’s Anatomy. Written and illustrated by New Jersey artist and author E. B. Hudspeth, it presents two books in one: a fictional biography of one Dr. Spencer Black, and Black’s magnum opus: The Codex Extinct Animalia, an anatomical reference manual of mythological beasts all rendered in meticulously detailed black-and-white anatomical illustrations.
The book launch will feature a gallery showing of Hudspeth’s artwork from the book, a discussion with the author moderated by Jason Rekulak, publisher of Quirk Books, and a book signing to follow. The event is free, open to the public, and guaranteed to be awesome. We’re thrilled to throw the launch with help from Indy Hall, a Philadelphia community where designers, developers, writers, artists, entrepreneurs, scientists, educators, small business owners, telecommuters, marketers, videographers, game developers, and more come together to work.
So come out, see the show, and grab your copy of The Resurrectionist! We promise we won’t bite…
