Zero Mostel Reads a Book

Last weekend I checked out the newly-opened Domy books here in Austin. They have such an irresistible collection of art, comic, photography and design books (along with visiting artists and gallery space) that I didn't make it out the door without a pile of bound beauties in my arms. Here's what I added to my library:

Zero Mostel Reads a Book with Photographs by Robert Frank (Steidl)
Need More Love: a graphic memoir by Aline Komisky Crumb (MQP)
Seeing Things by Jim Woodring (Fantagraphics)
Henry Darger's Room 851 Webster (Imperial Press)
Bill Daniel's Mostly True: The West's Most Popular Hobo Graffiti Magazine (Microcosm)
The most unexpected find had to be the Zero Mostel book which made my careful search through all the shelves well worth the exploration. However, I am muy bummed to be out of town when Gary Panter will be doing a book signing at Domy on June 14th.
