Party with Andrew McKinley and Adobe Books this Friday!

For the very first book published by the new collective!

Since Adobe’s inception 25 years ago, Andrew McKinley has been photographing neighbors, customers, musicians, poets, friends, loiterers & the Tartine girls. For years these portraits, dubbed Friends of Adobe, have decorated the bookshop & served as a visual representation of the Adobe community.

For the first time, a selection of Andrew’s photographs have been complied into a book. “Friends of Adobe Books” is the first book published by the Adobe Books and Arts Cooperative, edited by Calcagno Cullen and Katie Conry, design by Kyle Knobel, and photographs by the one and only Andrew McKinley.

Check out all the details here!

(And after that’s over, finish off your night with some karaoke ping pong!)

    A very fine collection of early-wave gentrifiers.

    Also it should be noted that Tartine is donating a 1/4 sheet of passion fruit Bavarian cake. You probably don’t want to miss that.

    Bookstore? LOL! Just use your kindle.

    Yeah, I hate to say it, but those poor artist types who arrived in the Mission in the nineties unwittingly did gentrify the neighborhood. But it will always be this way: people who lack excitement, creativity,originality,or a life purpose that centers on something other than money, will always chase after the artists so that they may glom onto them in the hopes that some how, it will all magically transfer to them. Money only buys you a place to live, sorry yupsters and techies.
