Tom Bonauro Shoppe Exclusive!!!

Hooray! We've got two very exciting new items in the Shoppe by one of our favorite artists of all time, the lovely and talented Mr. Tom Bonauro. The first is a brand new set of works created exclusively for the Curiosity Shoppe! Each of these 3 gorgeous silk screened prints features images from an ongoing body of work entitled "The Third Stage of Matter". The set also includes a beautiful vellum cover sheet and comes in a specially made die-cut case. The whole wonderful package has been masterfully printed and produced right here in San Francisco by John Sullivan of Logos Graphics. We were lucky enough to visit John and see some of the prints being made...

The second is a very special limited edition book of Tom's remarkable photography. Before Zero features dozens of magical images captured on his Polaroid SX-70. From dreamy colorscapes to remarkable "portraits" of artwork, icons, and nature scenes shot on the clever canvas of a television screen, each image exemplifies Tom's fantastic eye for color, form, and beauty in the everyday.

We'll be hosting a celebration of his work here in the Shoppe on December 5th, but more on that later...In the meantime, check out Victoria's fantastic post about Tom over on sfgirlbybay.
