We got a bunch of stuff from ELCAF...

Last weekend was the 4th annual East London Comics and Arts Festival (check out that Jillian Tamaki poster!) Pioneered by the people of Nobrow Press - which explains the immaculate curation - ELCAF was founded to provide a platform for small press publications, individual artists and collectives that are pushing boundaries in comics and graphic arts today. Thanks to deep suitcases we're lucky enough to have procured a chunk of ELCAF for everyone in Montreal who couldn't make it! Check out a preview below:

New books from Breakdown Press! The venerable Michael Deforge shares wisdom on kissing and quicksand (On Topics) and a magic tricks thriller from Antoine Cosse (Showtime Part I).

Lots of work from Dublin based cartoonist Luke Healy, including the winner of the 2014 MoCCA Excellence Award, Of Monstrous Pictures of Whales.

A selection of books from Italian small press, Delebile. Edited by a handful of talented artists including Bianca Bagnarelli who you may know for her award-winning comic, Fish, from Nobrow. Their anthologies (Home, Mother, Work) boast extremely strong bills and an international range of artists. Plus this comic collaboration by Charles Forsman and Max de Radigu├ęs! All works include access to English translation.

Swedish print studio Peow!'s new line-up includes Natalie Andrewson's action packed Lemon & Ket, Disa Wallander's nature compendium, The Nature of Nature, and a bittersweet teenage love story from Jane Mai called Soft.

Kristyna Baczynski is a self described comic book artist and illustrator of Yorkshire tongue and Ukrainian blood and we have a bunch of her lovely books here now - including her latest title, Vessel.

UK-based Avery Hill press have coined the glamorous and boutique-y term "micropublisher" to bring you comics and zines since 2012. We've got a few of their titles including the newly released Abraham Christie's existential Swear Jar as well as the tragic, End of Summer involving siblings, a secluded castle and a giant cat by Tillie Walden.

Teiera is an Italian self-publishing label that presses beautiful short comic anthologies. Besides being totally gorgeous, all of the books feature ten talented artists and include English translation. It is curated by Cristina Spano, Giulia Sagramola, and Sarah Mazzetti.
