Behind the Scenes
Local filmmaker Maria Matteoli spent the morning shooting a scene of her feature film, Wine of Summer, at Eureka Books. In the scene filmed here, James (played by Ethan Peck, grandson of Gregory), finds the book, Tinto de Verano, that (if I understand it correctly) sets off the action, which soon heads to Spain where most of the movie was shot this October. More info at the NC Journal blog.
Come check out our freshly restocked blank book bins which are filled to the brim with a new shipment of unique journals recycled from old hardcover books.
We are especially fond of these journals because we hand-pick old or damaged hardbacks from our own overstocked shelves to be re-purposed for a new life as a blank book. Each journal is one-of-a-kind. They make great gifts but you’re bound to find one that’s perfect for your own strokes of genius.
Eureka Books is excited to announce the arrival of Wicked Bugs, the latest book by best selling Eureka author Amy Stewart.
And don’t think we’re biased just because Amy is co-owner of Eureka Books. This handsome little hardcover is beautifully illustrated by Briony Morrow-Cribbs, the same artist who put her talents to the Wicked Bugs’ big sister, Wicked Plants.
You can come get your copy now, but Eureka Books is hosting the official book launch party with Amy from 6-9pm on May 7th during Arts Alive! We will also have Briony’s signed, hand-colored prints from the original copper plates used to illustrate the books on display (and on sale) for Arts Alive!
Our blank book bins are restocked with recycled blank journals — former hardcover books repurposed by Ex Libris Anonymous for a new incarnation to fit your blank book needs.
We are especially excited about this batch because our staff hand picked these great, old hardbacks from our very own overstocked shelves for a trip to the book doctor to have their guts ripped out and their spines severed so that you can keep your most intimate thoughts between two stylish covers.
Dunning is both author and illustrator of Seabird in the Forest, a children's book that chronicles the early life of a Murrelet chick high in the canopy of an old-growth forest.
Dunning will be at Eureka Books for Arts Alive! on April 2nd from 6-9pm to sign copies of her new book.
