This Shelf Belongs to...Matt Forsythe!

Each month, Librairie Drawn & Quarterly invites a local author or artist to curate a shelf in the store. This March, we bring you recommendations from Matt Forsythe!

Matt illustrated the picture books The Gold Leaf (spring, 2017) written by Kirsten Hall and The Bad Mood and the Stick (fall, 2017) written by Lemony Snicket. His comic Ojingogo was published by Drawn & Quarterly in 2008 and won some awards. He was also the lead designer on the TV show, Adventure Time with Finn and Jake. He lives in Montreal and is the 2017 Mordecai Richler Writer in Residence at Concordia University.

Join us on April 30th for the launch of his newest book, The Gold Leaf!

All of Matt's picks will be 15% off for the month of February. Here’s a sneak peek of what you’ll find on his shelf:

Black and White by Dahlov Ipcar
Ipcar is a huge inspiration for my picture books. Her pages have a masterful simplicity, design and flow to them.

Virginia Wolf by Kyo Maclear and Isabelle Arsenault
This book tackles a difficult theme with grace. Arsenault is one of my favourite artists.

We Found a Hat by Jon Klassen
Simply perfect.

Panther by Brecht Evans
The drawings in this are stunning.

The Lion and the Bird by Marianne Dubuc
Simple and sweet. I wish I could write a book like this.

The Tiger Who Would be King by Joohee Yoon
Joohee is a source of constant visual inspiration.

Blueberries for Sal by Robert Mccloskey
This book is pure flow.

A Lion in Paris by Beatrice Allemagne
Maybe the most exciting picture book ever made?

Frog and Toad by Arnold Lobel
Everything about these guys is delightful.
