Cartoonist Tom Gauld (author of You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack
) has a gorgeous new letterpress print.
A three colour letterpress print on 175gsm Somerset paper in an edition of 250 signed and numbered copies. The image is 21cm by 25cm, and the paper is 27 by 32cm.
The print will be available in late May but you can pre-order now. It costs £85 (including p&p) in the UK and £90 (including p&p) in the rest of the world.
Please note: This is a hand made print so there will be some small variations in tone and registration over the edition. This will be the only edition I make of this print.
I have one of his prints, "Characters for an Epic Tale," and I can vouch for its high quality. (See more posts about Tom Gauld on Boing Boing.)
New Tom Gauld print: "Some advice on how to cope in these tough times"
My glib description of Tom Gauld's cartoons would be "a science fiction Edward Gorey." It's unfair though, because there's is only a superficial stylistic resemblance between the two writer/illustrators.
To read a Tom Gauld cartoon or illustrated book (see my reviews of The Gigantic Robot and Goliath) is to be entertained, but also to be affected on a deeper level, where timeless truths about the human condition wait for talents such as Gauld to tap a line into them and provide lesser mortals like me with a chance to taste them.
Gauld's new book, You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack
came out yesterday, and it consists of single panels that explore the passage of time, absurdism, and most of the 7 Deadly Sins, all presented with a sense of graceful whimsy that makes his work such a delight to read. Below, a sampling of You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack

As reviewed in Gweek - Tom Gauld's tragic, darkly funny retelling of David and Goliath from Goliath's perspective. Gauld's work is always quietly powerful and emotionally grabbing. Here's a seven-page taste of the new graphic novel, which is presented in a beautiful hardcover format from Drawn & Quarterly
