Blank Slate Books | Nelson

If you only buy one book this year, make it this one. It's truly superb, and the amazing thing about it, is that it really hangs together as a narrative, despite the varied display of styles on show. Kudos to Rob Davis and Woodrow Phoenix for putting it together, to the cartoonists involved for turning out some really exquisite work, and to Kenny Penman for publishing it. I'll do a fuller write-up on the book (including a look at the origins of the book from a chat on twitter) a bit nearer the publication date - it's due out in November - but I've got to say it's a book any cartoonist (or publisher, for that matter) would be really proud to have been involved with. It's *that* good.
