George Sprott by Seth.

Published May 2009 by Drawn and Quarterly

ISBN: 978-1897299517

The Recommend:

The cartoonist/book designer/writer/genius Seth, calls his book George Sprott a “picture novella”.

Whatever it should be called, it is a slightly mysterious and moving story, told in classic cartoon style.

For every important building in the small town that is the central location for the story, Seth has constructed a cardboard model and the photos of the buildings are interspersed throughout the book.

It is a triumphant marriage of words and image and you will not believe that you can get this beautiful object for the price that is on the sticker.

    Oooh, another recommendation I’d second in a lightning’s flash. I’d steal this for everyone on my shopping list if I were slightly less ethical, or if it was called a “stealing list” and not a “shopping list.”
