Geis: A Game Without Rules Launch Party

Alexis Deacon will be here on Friday 29th September, 7-9pm, to celebrate the release of his new Nobrow graphic novel (and sequel to one of our favourite books of last year) Geis: A Game Without Rules!

The middle chapter of Deacon's dark fantasy trilogy, A Game Without Rules picks up where the first volume, A Matter of Life and Death, left off. The contenders for the throne undertake their second challenge, compelled by the sorcerous power of the geis. Meanwhile our heroine Io, still an unwilling participant, continues to puzzle over the mystery of the dark magic at the heart of the geis that threatens to consume them all.

A celebrated children's illustrator, Alexis has, among other accolades, been shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal, and awarded Best Illustrated Book of the Year by the New York Times Book Review (both for his book Beegu). We're big fans of his lyrical, textured art, and are thrilled to have him back again!

Alexis will be here on Friday 29th September, 7-9pm. If you can't make it but would like a signed book, then drop us a line to to arrange a mail order or a reservation.
