Sabrina by Nick Drnaso is a graphic novel making waves. It has been described by Zadie Smith as ‘a masterpiece’ and by graphic novel genius, Chris Ware, as ‘a perspicacious and chilling analysis of the nature of trust and truth and the erosion of both in the age of the internet – and especially, in the age of Trump.’ We featured it on our YouTube vlog last week but here’s a look inside the muted panels of this book about loss, grief, the internet, going viral and remaining human in modern America.
If you're a Tolkien fan (or know one), this is an absolute must: a beautiful new volume that brings together the largest collection of original material on the author ever assembled, featuring manuscripts, drawings, maps and letters. Drawing on the archives of the Tolkien collections at the Bodleian Libraries, Oxford, and Marquette University, Milwaukee, this wondrous book draws together the many worlds of J.R.R. Tolkien - scholarly, literary, creative and domestic. #bookstagram#instabook#tolkien#jrrtolkien#lotr#lordoftherings#thehobbit#igreads
