PRESALE: Exotica Moderne 13 Coming In November!
NOTE: We will be doing a presale again as many people don't always see our social media posts and miss grabbing a copy. We expect to go to press at the end of October with printing taking two weeks. Order fulfillment will then take approximately another two weeks with customers receiving their orders after that. Exotica Moderne ships 1st Class US Postal Service and delivery times vary by location. Due to new changes instituted by USPS, first class packages will now take longer than usual. We ask for your patience in receiving your order.
Issue 13 of Exotica Moderne features a stunning cover by Harry Decker, with a full interview of his rum-soaked art from the Hula Hideaway. We also feature the stylized art of Hollywood, California’s Bobby Doran with his grafitti tiki art!
