by Alan Moore & Tim Perkins
(on Steven Severin's RE: label)
Top Shelf Productions is proud to present Alan Moore's all-new
performance CD from the Steven Severin's RE: label. Following on from
the critical acclaim of last year's THE HIGHBURY WORKING, Alan Moore
turns his psychogeographic eye to the life and works of William Blake.
Originally performed at London's Purcell Rooms as part of this year's
William Blake retrospective, ANGEL PASSAGE is a hallucinatory whirl
through Blake's mystical world, told in the magickal words of Moore and
set to the mesmeric musical moods of Tim Perkins. ANGEL PASSAGE is proof
positive of Moore's position as a storyteller of enchanting proportions.
Alan Moore collectors won't want to miss the opportunity to pick up this
rare Alan Moore import.

JAMES KOCHALKA'S SKETCHBOOK DIARY YEAR 2
By James Kochalka
Following the incredible success of James' (still in print) first diary
sketchbook, Top Shelf is proud to announce YEAR 2 of the JAMES KOCHALKA
SKETCHBOOK DIARY. Since October 1998, James Kochalka has kept a daily
diary, drawn in comic strip form in his sketchbook. Drawn with relaxed
and beautiful brushwork, these charming and addictive strips perfectly
capture the rhythm of daily life. From the hilarious to the sad, from
the poetic to the drunken, these strips offer a direct and intimate
portrait of the life of one of America's most important alternative
cartoonists. This ambitious volume collects the second full year of
Kochalka's diary, including his infamous rock tour of Scandinavia.
