On Saturday, February 22, 2014, come to Gallery 1988 (West) between 8-10 PM for the return of Josh Cooley. To celebrate the new book, Movies R Fun! A Collection of Cinematic Classics For The Pre-(Film) School Cinephile, G1988 will be the 1st place you can purchase Cooley’s movie-inspired children’s book and get tons of prints (and even a few originals), all limited edition. The artist will be on hand to sign the book.

The 48 page hardcover cleverly translates memorable scenes from classic contemporary films into the format of an “inappropriate Golden Book.”

The idea for the book originated when Josh’s daughter was born and he realized it would be at least 17 years before he could share his favorite films with her. His tongue-in-cheek solution was a child’s book that could introduce some of the most memorable moments of those films
