by Joost Swarte
Published by Fantagraphics Books
144p, color, hardcover, 7"x9.5"
This Swarte omnibus is slender but lavish and picture-perfect in near every regard, presented cohesively to America for the first time since the days of RAW, complete with a loving introduction from Chris Ware and meticulous attention to exacting production detail throughout. Funny, poignant, edgy and crafted...this collection is solid-gold proof that Quality can kick Quantity's ass any day of the week. Read it and weep, amateurs. -EF
