We’re very happy announce the arrival of our Killing and Dying bookplate designed and signed by Adrian Tomine!
Killing and Dying is a collection of Tomine’s short stories. The stories vary wildly, from ‘Amber Sweet’ about mistaken identity, ‘Translated, from the Japanese’ storytelling through silent images, ‘Intruders’ about home invasion, to ‘Killing and Dying’ that follows a teenagers attempt at a career as a stand-up comedian. The book has six interconnected stories, and are darkly funny.
His bookplate is a sketch from one of the stories.
