San Diego Public Library: “Comic-Con-Themed Library Card Promotes Binational Region”
From the San Diego Union Tribune:
The exclusive card, licensed by Comic-Con, was designed by Tijuana artist Charles Glaubitz and will be the first time a San Diego Public Library card has been produced in Spanish, officials said in a statement.
The limited-edition card features the niño burro character from Glaubitz’s “Once Upon a Time in Tijuana” comic book series reading a book with the Central Library dome and the Tijuana Arch at the bottom of the card.
It is accompanied by the words “oportunidad, descubrimiento e inspiración” (opportunity, discovery and inspiration) along with Biblioteca Pública de San Diego written in Spanish.
“We wanted to show the two places, the two countries and something to connect them,” Glaubitz said.
