Tom Gauld’s You’re All Just Jealous Of My Jetpack — Exclusive Gosh! Bookplate Edition

 ****************************************SOLD OUT ****************************************

In addition to throwing a party for the new collection of Tom Gauld’s Guardian cartoons we’re also doing another bookplate edition. Word to the wise: the Goliath bookplates disappeared very, very quickly so if you’d like to secure a copy of this one you’d best be quick! Here’s the spiel on the deal:

“New York Times Magazine cartoonist Tom Gauld follows up his widely praised graphic novel Goliath with You’re All Just Jealous of My Jetpack, a collection of cartoons made for The Guardian. Over the past eight years, Gauld has produced a weekly cartoon for the Saturday Review section of Britain’s most well regarded newspaper. Only a handful of comics from this huge and hilarious body of work have ever been printed in North America – exclusively within the pages of the prestigious Believer magazine. You’re All Just Jealous of My Jetpack distils perfectly Gauld’s dark humor, impeccable timing, and distinctive style. Arrests by the fiction police and fictional towns designed by Tom Waits intermingle hilariously with piercing observations about human behavior and whimsical imaginings of the future. Again and again, Tom Gauld reaffirms his position as a first rank cartoonist, creating work infused with a deep understanding of both literary and cartoon history.”

We’ve got a preview copy of the book doing the rounds in the staffroom and can thus confirm it is a properly beautiful book, made all the nicer with our Gosh! exclusive bookplate. Tom produced all-new art just for this purpose so you won’t find it anywhere else. Only 200 copies exist, signed and numbered by Tom himself (who popped in with his pens and signed them in the office) and once they’re gone, they’re gone. They’re the regular cover price of £12.99 and if you’d like to reserve a copy, bung us an email to info@goshlondon.com and we’ll sort it out. We can mail them anywhere in the world, too, as long as you’ve got a PayPal account. Here’s the breakdown on postage costs:

UK: £5
Europe: £5.80
USA/Australia/New Zealand: £9.00
