I think this is the start of a regular feature on PN6700:Temptations. No matter how much you want to stop buying,sometimes they make something so beautiful it is hard to say no. At least in this case I have said no so far:
No,I am not linking to a picture of a lady (publisher Drawn &Quarterly‘s publicity assistant,Claire Bennett). Rather,to my shame,I am sharing a photo of the two fine publications she holds in her hands. One is the preliminary cover for a collection of George Sprott:(1894-1975),the serial by Seth that recently ran in the New York Times (I think? whatever periodical has been serializing Daniel Clowes,Jamie Hernandez,and the other guys). The other is The Collected Doug Wright,a collection of work by the celebrated Canadian cartoonist. For many more pictures of this book visit this entry on their blog. I mean,look at these pages. I don’t know Doug Wright from Adam,but this is a beautifully designed book. Once upon a time I would have pre-ordered that without even thinking twice. But the new me just made a note of it on an Amazon.com wish list and will think about it when it comes out. I do love the size,though. Looking through the rest of the blog (at http://www.drawnandquarterly.com/blog/) D&Q seem to be using it a lot.
Why does the pusherman have to have such sweet,sweet smack?
