Welcome to The Beguiling Blog

Hi there, welcome to our blog.

We’ve integrated Blogger’s automated update service into our frontpage in order to bring you event news, sales info, and maybe even reviews, in a more timely and frequent fashion. There’s even a feed at http://www.beguiling.com/atom.xml for you to integrate into your newsreaders and things.

In case you’re just joining us, The Beguiling Books & Art was founded in 1987 in Toronto, Canada. Showcasing the largest selection of alternative, underground and avant-garde graphic story telling in the country (not to mention manga, BD, superheroes, ‘the new mainstream’, and much more…), The Beguiling has a worldwide reputation for excellence. Among the many accolades afforded the store, the most prestigious was the first-ever Eisner Spirit of Retailing Award for excellence in retailing. The Beguiling has also sponsored many book signings, conventions and poetry/prose readings with legendary and current comics creators such as Robert Crumb, Harlan Ellison, Neil Gaiman, and others. In 2003, The Beguiling hosted it’s first itteration of the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, bringing alternative and independent comics creators from around the world to Toronto to celebrate the best of comic art. The next will follow in August 2007, and more information can be found at http://www.torontocomics.com/tcaf.

Thanks for reading!
