The Big Tease by Bruce Timm! Now Available to Pre-Order

A big note of thanks to everyone who has pre-ordered our upcoming Bruce Timm book so far! We’ve had a tremendous response. It is very helpful when people pre-order since not only does it help us to pay our initial printer bill, but it also helps me to determine the print run. I enjoy how many books that we sell direct since we like the relationship that we have with all of you. Thank you!

The Big Tease collects his three Teaser collections—released from 2011 to 2013 and long sold out—plus Surrender, My Sweet from 2015. In addition, Timm has created new material especially for this collection and delved into his personal archives to share pieces not shown before. These culminate in more than 75 additional pages of material not reproduced in any of his previous Naughty and Nice collections. In all, over 260 women drawn in pencil, ink or color fill these pages. Timm’s art is reproduced at an impressive size and showcased in this oversized format.

The hardcover edition is only available direct from us at Flesk. Save $10 by pre-ordering your book at this special price. This collection ships in mid-June 2020. The book is done and at the printer. All hardcover pre-orders come with 2 free bonus 8 x 10” mini-prints that feature B.T. art found within the book.

I was curious about how long we have been working on this collection. I went through my emails and found the following message that I sent to Bruce on November 5th, 2018. (This is just a small portion of the email.

“I have a little itch to work on something else in the background.

“What do you think of making a new collection of your nudes that would collect the 3 Teaser’s and Surrender My Sweet into a 9 x 12″ collection? We’d be looking at 112 pages of material.”

Bruce’s reply was, “Consider me interested.” (Also, a small portion of his response.)

Since I know how busy Bruce always is I had suggested that this book was something that we could do without him needing to produce any new work, except for a cover piece. Well, here we are 1 year and 4 months later with a 208 page book that has an additional 75 pages of material not reproduced in any of his previous Naughty and Nice collections.

Bruce is a joy to collaborate with. I always work around his schedule knowing that in time we will have a beautiful new collection. For this reason we are grateful for your patience and truly hope you will enjoy this book.

We’ve had a lot of inquiries asking if Bruce can sign the books. His schedule is too tight and busy to allow him to. However, we hope some of you can meet him in person at the San Diego Comic Con where he can sign it for you in person. That’s the one show where he makes an appearance each year.

Here’s the link to pre-order if you are interested.

Wishing You all Well!

Hi everyone,

With everything that is going on right now, I wanted to reach out to you and wish you all well. I hope that you and your family and friends are safe and healthy. 

We’re all doing good here. Kathy, Vicky and I are working from our respective homes while we are sheltered in place. Due to the California shelter in place mandate, we are unable to go into the office to pack and ship any packages until an official announcement allows us to resume our office operations.

What does this mean for us at Flesk Publications? We can run the business from home with the one exception of mailing packages. For the time being we have ceased all shipping until we are given permission by the city to resume our office operations. Only essential businesses are allowed to continue to operate at the moment. Health services, grocery stores and gas stations are examples of essential businesses. Thank you for your patience as we hold off to mail any online orders that you may have placed on our website until the city gives us the safety clearance.

The health of our community, our friends, and our families takes precedence during this time. We’re doing our part by staying at home to respect the ordinance and to refrain from inadvertently adding to the problem.

During our shelter in place we will use this time to pour all our energy into being creative and to working with our artist friends. It’s our goal to use this time of sheltering to make some beautiful new books, including Spectrum 27, a new Arthur Adams collection, and our first big book that highlights Rachel and Terry Dodson. We look forward to sharing these new titles with you once we get through this unprecedented situation.

The Art of Frank Cho is at the printer. It’s too early to tell if there will be any delays with the book, but we will get through this incredibly challenging time and everything will be ok.

From Kathy, Vicky, Lauren and myself here at Flesk, and from Frank, we wish for you and your family to be safe and secure and hope that you all come out of this situation healthy. We’re grateful to all of you for your support over the years. You have given us this gift of being able to publish art books. We can’t thank you enough.

With our best wishes.

John
