Our pal Coop is the guest of honor at the launch party for his new book, Idle Hands: The Art of Coop
, published by Baby Tattoo
Join us at Studio Servitu in Downtown Los Angeles to celebrate the release of Coop's first new book in 10 years.
Idle Hands: The Art of Coop presents 200 full color pages of spectacular, badass art; and the book's launch party will be appropriately vice-centric with themed entertainment, epic paintings, and the man himself in attendance.
Lose yourself in live music. Frolic with devil dancers. Drink. Hang with Coop and his friends and fans late into the night and get a book signed if you're so inclined. Admission is $10 at the door (good for a $10 credit if you purchase a book at the event).
If you are unable to attend, but would still like to purchase a signed book, you can order at babytattoo.com and we'll ship you an autographed copy.
It's Saturday, June 16th, 2012, 9:00 PM 'til Midnight at Studio Servitu
