When: Thu., Oct. 26 2017
Start Halloween weekend early with the book release party for Sandwich Anarchy, the first book showcasing more than 200 of Cleveland-based illustrator John G.’s Melt Bar & Grilled sandwich posters. Melt’s Independence location hosts the release party from 7 to 10 p.m. tonight. Sandwich Anarchy collects ten years’ worth of Melt sandwich posters illustrated by the Gordon Square-based artist. The hardbound book features 208 full-color pages, but John G. estimates he has created more than 1,000 concept sketches for Melt since its founding in 2006. Although the book will be available through local bookstores, Amazon, 1984publishing.com and all Melt locations starting on Halloween, guests can grab a copy for just $25 today, and John G. will be on-hand to sign copies. As an extra bonus, all books come with a Blu-ray copy of Turnstyle Films’ Draw Hard documentary, an insightful glimpse into John G.’s life and work. Pre-orders are available now through 1984publishing.com. Admission is free. (Usmani) 6700 Rockside Rd., Independence, 216-520-1415, meltbarandgrilled.com.
