Friday 5th of October, 7-9 pm the extraordinary Jon McNaught will be with us to launch his beautiful new book from Nobrow: Kingdom!
Jon McNaught’s work has been described as the closest thing to poetry in comics as you can get and we have to agree. Ever since his early, extremely confident work on Pebble Island he’s been a Gosh! favourite and a uniquely meditative voice in the medium. Every one of Jon’s books have been a gem of observation and mood building and Kingdom is no exception!
A family sets off for a long weekend at a caravan park on the British coast. We follow them through the familiar landscapes of a summer holiday: motorway service stations, windswept cliffs, dilapidated museums and tourist giftshops. In this atmospheric and contemplative work, Jon McNaught explores the rhythms of nature, the passing of time, and the beauty and boredom of a summer holiday.
We’re thrilled to have Jon McNaught with us on Friday the 5th of October, 7-9 pm and hope you can make it too. If you can't but would like something signed drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a reservation or mail order, or click through to our webshop to pre-order a signed copy of Kingdom!
