Embonpoint news

New for 2024!

Coming on May 23, 2024! Embonpoint is thrilled to announce our release of a beautiful children's book!


Juniper and the Rose is a brand new 46 page story written by Daniel Natali Barragan. Philip is proud to introduce his nephew's debut book inspired by Danny's young daughter, Juniper Rose.


In perfect symmetry, Mason Arrigo, Danny's other uncle, has graciously illustrated this nineteen line story that Mason describes as a children's book for adults. Everyone who has read the story has shed tears of joy. We hope you will enjoy and share it with your family, your partners and children.


We are busy planning the book release and will announce that here as soon as details are available.


Congratulations, Danny! Your uncles could not be more proud. We love you, Danielle and Juni so very much.

We've been busy working on FATIZEN Part 2 for a summer 2020 release followed by the next installment of Blanc Noir in Fall 2020. We'll keep you all updated with those exciting projects.

We were recently invited to join writer Lise Quintana on her Living Large in American podcast to discuss FATIZEN and Philip's fat advocacy work leading him to write the prose book and develop it for a graphic novel with his husband Mason Arrigo along with colorist Chris Link. The episode is called, "The Stories We Tell About Ourselves."

Take a listen and check out Ms. Quintana's other episodes on her Living Large in American podcast!

Getting the word out

Three years of book fairs, releases, and readings. The glamorous life of writing, illustrating, and publishing!​ We are so thankful to our family, friends and partners who have been there for us all along the way. We couldn't have done this without any of you. This journey has been a lot of hard work and joy. Definitely worth our effort!

Looking Back...

Today's environment of free speech and the reporting on the truth by journalists and the media has come under attack by many. Writer & Editor Philip Barragan addressed the importance of the written word in 2011 at Antioch University Los Angeles'  Commencement Ceremony at UCLA's Royce Hall.
