This weekend, NBM Graphic Novels (Tables D148, D149) once again heads to the MoCCA Arts Festival.
We’ll have all of our latest titles on hand, such as THE STORY OF LEE, vol. 2 by
Sean Michael Wilson and Nami Tamura, PERSIA BLUES, vol. 2: Love and War by Dara Naraghi, and Brent Bowman, CRUISING THROUGH THE LOUVRE by David Prudhomme and DUNGEON Monstres, vol. 6: The Great Animator by Lewis Trondheim, Joann Sfar, Stanislas, Nicolas Keramidas,
We’ll also have on hand previews of several forthcoming titles such as:
“To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, nor even to found a school, but so to love wisdom as to live according to its dictates, a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity and trust.”
This graphic novel biography relates the forward looking inspirational life of the great author, philosopher and pioneering ecologist. Henry David Thoreau was also the father of the concept, still fresh today (viz ‘Occupy Wall St.’), of ‘civil disobedience’ which he used against slavery and the encroachment of government.
Acclaimed manga artist Jiro Taniguchi provides the latest entry in the Louvre collection of graphic novels. After a group trip to Europe, a Japanese artist stops in Paris alone, intent on visiting the museums of the capital. But, bedridden in his hotel room with fever, he faces the absolute solitude of one suffering in a foreign land, deprived of any immediate or familiar recourse. When the fever breaks somewhat, he sets out on his visit and promptly gets lost in the crowded halls of the Louvre. Very soon, he discovers many unsuspected facets to this world in a museum in a journey oscillating between feverish hallucination and reality, actually able to speak with famous painters from various periods of history, led to crossroads between human and personal history by… the Guardians of the Louvre.
We’ll also has the very first look at Cyril Pedrosa’s ambitious Equinoxes coming in September. Pedrosa’s book, Three Shadows, was published in 2008 through First: Second, and we’re enthusiastic for everyone to see Equinoxes, which is reminiscent in theme and amazing scope of Dave McKean’s Cages.
Also on Saturday, author Julian Voloj will appear at the NBM Booth from 2:00 – 4:00 PM to sign copies of his book, Ghetto Brother: Warrior to Peacemaker
