For Beginners® is a documentary, graphic, nonfiction book series. With subjects ranging from philosophy to politics, art, and beyond, the For Beginners® series covers a range of familiar concepts in a humorous comic-book style, and takes a readily comprehensible approach that’s respectful of the intelligence of its audience.
Well, it’s that time of year again, folks! For Beginners turns 7 today!
It’s definitely been a crazy year for us. We switched distributors to the awesome Red Wheel/Weiser in April and they have been working to make our books reach new audiences better than ever.
For Beginners, which now has over 50 titles published throughout the world, is going strong today. It continues in the footsteps of the series founder, Glenn Thompson’s ideals, to produce graphic non-fiction books on subjects that need to be demystified or are under-represented.
Currently on our table we have Fanon For Beginners (September), The History of Classical Music For Beginners (October) and French Revolutions For Beginners (November). Upcoming in 2015 our subjects include: Lincoln, the American Presidency, Stanislavski, Bukowski, Buddha, Saussure and the Black Panthers.
It’s going to be a busy end of the year for us, but we’re excited to continue bringing you interesting For Beginners books!
Author Paul von Blum will be in the Spartacus Books in Vancouver August 20th from 4pm to 6pm for a meet up!
