A Numerical Meditation on Five

Demuth-Figure5InGold

(this is Charles Demuth's painting 'The Figure 5 in Gold')

It's our fifth anniversary this year (which you might've noticed from Mark's post last week).  I thought I'd commemorate by writing a post about significant numbers for First Second. 

As of right now, we have:

63 books in print by 53 authors and illustrators

15 YALSA Great Graphic Novels for Teens

4 staff members

3 Eisner Awards

850,000 books sold*

15 books TK in 2011

4 webcomics

1 magical cartooning elf

(our number of 63 books by 53 creators goes up to 64/54 tomorrow with the publication of Ben Hatke's delightful Zita the Spacegirl!)

*this is an approximate number
