Jim Woodring

Not all of us can embrace the steampunk movement, not if it means wooden computers and carrying our flash drives on gold watch chains, though Paul DiFilippo might argue otherwise. The Rhode Island writer of Cosmocopia (Payseur & Schmidt, $65) will appear with local artist Jim Woodring to discuss the new limited-edition volume. In addition to his illustrations for DiFilippo’s tale of an artist whose pharmacological discovery unlocks the gates of genius (or is it madness?), Woodring has designed a jigsaw puzzle that’s also included in the package. His art will remain on display through November 5. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, 1201 S. Vale St., 658-0110, www.fantagraphics.com. Free. 6–9 p.m. BRIAN MILLER

Mondays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 11. Continues through Nov. 5, 2008
