Ignatz-nominated cartoonist and printmaker Jon McNaught will soon be releasing a new book called Dockwood via Nobrow Press. The online previews of this 64-page, 4-color hardback look absolutely stunning. Here’s what Nobrow has to say about the book:
In this new work, Jon McNaught weaves together the everyday lives of three locals against an evocative backdrop of autumnal transitions. Bittersweet and contemplative, Dockwood is for anyone who believes the stories that take place within life’s small moments can often be the most meaningful of all.
And if what you see here isn’t convincing enough, here’s a huge endorsement from Chris Ware:
There are few younger comics artists with whom I feel a genuine aesthetic kinship, but the radiant and glowing Dockwood is Jon McNaught’s loveliest argument yet for the beauty of just being alive. It’s a gem.
The book will ship to UK/EU on the 11th of October and to US/R.O.W. from the 15th of October and you can pre-order through the Nobrow website. Plus, the first 250 orders will come with a 4 color screenprinted bookplate.
