BACK ALLEYS AND URBAN LANDSCAPES by Michael Cho
Michael Cho’s latest book collects five years of sketches, paintings and drawings of Toronto’s back alleys and lesser-known areas. Grit and beauty are rendered in a variety of mediums, such as watercolor, gouache, ink, markers and coloured dyes.
GLORIANA by Kevin Huizenga
Yes! I’m always pleased to see some more titles by Kevin Huizenga, the creator of the great GANGES series, the short stories collection CURSES, and WILD KINGDOM. In this reprint of an earlier self-published title, Huizenga mixes the mundane and the profound by having his main character Glenn Ganges experience the ups and downs of life in four short tales.
ANNA & FROGA: WANT A GUMBALL? by Anouk Ricard
I dare any adult to read this kids book without laughing out loud. With her usual cast of characters, Anouk Ricard succeeds once more in producing a book with hilarious dialogues, bright illustrations and a whole lotta fun!
BIRDSEYE BRISTOE by Dan Zettwoch
I have been waiting for this book for so long! Several months ago, I got a sneak peak of Zettwoch’s artwork at the D&Q office and fell in love with it instantly. The layout, the bright colors, the beautiful gatefold, and the humour in Zettwoch’s debut work are simply stunning.
