Books with Pictures Great Big Move!

$34,741

650

Books with Pictures is a comic book store in Portland, OR. We were built from the ground up to prioritize inclusivity and diverse representation. We want to be the shop where we can say YES! to anyone who walks in and asks "Do you have any stories with someone who's like me?" Our staff listens closely to each customer's interests and curiosities to help open new doors.

In early 2019, Books with Pictures owner Katie Proctor worked with a group of friends and supporters to purchase an historic building in SE Portland to serve as the new, sustainable, expanded home for Books with Pictures. 

THIS ONE!

Now, we need to finish the space and move in! Help us raise money to pay for building renovations and repair, new shop fixtures, moving expenses, and more, while getting yourself some amazing new art and merch. 


 NOW UNLOCKED!

 ATTENTION FRIENDS!  This campaign will be supported by Backer Kit!

In this pin, by Kory Bing, the open pages interpret the distinctive street grid of our new neighborhood in Portland, Ladd's Addition, as a rainbow-colored comics spread, with a glitter star calling out our new location. Behind the center spread of streets are pages that will be produced in many different colorways to represent the amazing diversity of our community. Pick one, two, five, or get all nine!

Have you ever had a question about sex, but didn't know who to ask? Well, Erika and Matthew have spent years learning, talking, and creating informative comics about all aspects of sex. Using comics, jokes, and frank communication, they're here to demystify the world of sex and answer your questions—including ones you might not even know you had!

For one month, you run our recommendations shelf! We will feature a picture of you, along with your personal descriptions of why these 6-8 titles are especially awesome. Promote yourself! Yell about your amazing friends! Create new fans of the best series ever! The choice is yours. You and your selections will also be featured in a spotlight on our social media platforms. Plus, you will receive one of our new TOTE BAGS!

These beautiful prints were created especially for our campaign, to reflect all of the things that comics can be. Get one, two, or a set to dress up on the walls of your dining room, reading nook, book store, library, or classroom.  

Similar to our Enamel Pins, our tote bag design reflects the Ladd's Addition street grid, with the reading girl from our logo calling out our new location. Use it to find us, carry your new comics home, and then brag to everyone about exactly where you got them.

Books with Pictures' owner Katie Proctor is a queer single mother of two who has lived in Portland since 2009. Katie has worked and volunteered in bike advocacy, literary administration, education, and tech. She has been running Books with Pictures full time since Free Comic Book Day 2016. She loves Bitch Planet and The Wicked and the Divine and Squirrel Girl and A-Force and Die and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Hickman's Avengers and is built of enthusiasm and nurturance.

The other face you'll most often see at Books with Pictures is Nick Orr. Nick received his BFA in Illustration from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan. After graduating he moved to LA and worked as a freelance graphic designer and artist. He spent his time fine-tuning his craft and figuring out how best to convey a story. Nick moved to Portland in 2007. After years working at Barnes & Noble, he joined Katie's team to open Books with Pictures in 2016, first part-time, and then full-time. In 2018, Nick completed the Helioscope Studio mentorship program for artists, and in 2019 will be an invited artist at the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts. His print "Take Me Away" is one of our backer rewards. 

Nicole Hawthorne is from Reno, Nevada, and moved to Portland for school and friendship. Currently she’s working on establishing herself as a freelance artist, but for now she spends most of her days selling, reading, and talking about comics. She also works at an escape room guiding people through puzzles and making sure they don’t break things. When she is not at either of her amazing jobs she’s home with her spouse and two cats watching cartoons. Some of her favorite comics are Snotgirl, Crowded, and The Wicked + The Divine, and she could talk for hours on end about the web comics she reads.

Seaerra Miller grew up in central Wyoming and moved to Portland to attend the Pacific Northwest College of Art and Design to study illustration. Since graduating in 2017 she has worked with with clients including Snapchat, Oni Press, and the City of Portland. She has also illustrated three books for Flying Eye and is currently working on a series of middle grade comics for them. When she’s not reading, selling, or drawing comics she likes watching bad movies and listening to sad 80’s music. Some of her favorite comics include Blue Monday, Giant Days, and Kiss Number 8.
 

Katie and the BwP Crew!
Katie and the BwP Crew!

The building at 1401 SE Division St was built in 1927 to hold the Crucciola family's grocery store and butcher shop, with an outbuilding for keeping chickens just behind. Patriarch Antonio Crucciola passed away in 1946, but the neighborhood grocery carried on. By 1964, the building was in the hands of J.P. Wilder, who started advertising for shop workers and delivery personnel for his business, J.P. Wilder Company, repairing automobile brakes and clutches. The chicken coop became a machine shop, and the dirt lot was paved. The last ad for shop workers ran in 1968. By 1975 the building was tied to ads in the Oregonian for "BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS." Since then--nearly half its life--this two-story wood-frame live-above retail shop has been a spot for literature.

                             In 1976 the shop, Serendipity Corner Books, was purchased by Jean Bader and her friend and “silent partner” Frank Barst; it was already a “cluttered old bookstore, then filled with empty soda bottles and sloppy stacks of musty books and magazines,” Jean told the Oregonian. Serendipity sold used books, as well as both used and new comics, until 1986, when Jean moved to Lincoln City to manage a bookstore there.

                             From 1985 to 1991, the shop was leased to Pegasus Books, the multi-branched comics chain that would eventually become Things From Another World. In 1991, Jon Hagen bought it and moved his decade-old store Longfellow’s Books and Records there from its Moreland neighborhood location on SE Milwaukee. Longfellow’s specialized in rare and antiquarian books, and also carried extensive runs of old magazines and rare folk records collected on Jon’s scouting trips up and down the Oregon coast. For the past decade, Jon’s son Nile had been helping him run the business, especially its online presence. In 2016, the Oregonian voted Longfellow’s a “uniquely Portland experience,” and their “favorite bookstore.” Jon died on Jan. 25 of last year, at the age of 80, and Nile put the building up for sale in the fall.

                             Katie first spoke with Nile about buying it on November 6, Election Day: “When Nile told me he was selling the building, I thought, ‘there is no possible way I can do that.’ And then I rushed home and called a bunch of people to figure out how to do it.” She wound up forming the limited liability corporation Building for Books LLC, and bringing together about twenty friends and supporters to help make the purchase. Her plans for the space include not just a bigger, better Books with Pictures, but also a record store in the basement and a food cart pod in the parking lot. The new plans for this Building for Books touch on many of its roots: food, comics, books, music. But most importantly, it will bring new life to this beloved neighborhood corner. And the apartment above? Katie is thrilled to get to live there, with her two kids and their old-lady cat, Pixel.

Risks and challenges

All of our rewards are either already complete or in process; we have contracts ready to go with silk-screeners and pin-makers. However, managing fulfillment at the same time as completing our move will make for some tricky time crunches-- we expect we won't be able to start serious mailing parties until late June or early July, and depending on how many supporters we get, it may take a while to get all of those packages out the door. It is important to us that your art, pins, and bags reach you safely, and we hope you'll be patient with us as we get everything packed and mailed.
