Curio & Co. in Angoulême


We travel to France for the largest comics festival in Europe.

Angoulême is France’s capital of comics, animation and visual arts.  The city is home to the Angoulême International Comics Festival, Europe’s largest event dedicated to comics attracting nearly a quarter of a million international visitors.  Curio & Co. will be there with a booth in Le Nouveau Monde section (F18, BD Alternative, Nouveau Monde, Place New York).  We’re pretty excited.

Though the festival only lasts about a week, the city has plenty to over comics fans year-round.  There’s la Cité Internationale de la Bande Dessinée et de l'Image. This large complex is housed in three buildings along the Charente river and includes a museum, a heritage library, a specialized public library, a documentation center, an international artists' residence, a bookshop, an art house cinema, an internet consultation point and a tasty restaurant (bien sûr, we’re in France after all!).

And as if that isn’t enough, Angoulême has been a centre of the paper-making and printing industry since the 14th century… we can almost smell the new paper!

Stop by and say "bonjour" if you'll be in Angoulême!
