Hardcover, 10 x 14 inches, 96 pages with gatefold, full color.
The first major new graphic novel by Seth in 3 years.
Celebrated cartoonist and New Yorker cover artist Seth gives us the fictional life of George Sprott. On the surface George seems a charming, foolish, old man—but who is he? And who was he? Told as a patchwork tale, we come to know George, piece by piece, in a series of “interviews,” flashbacks, and personal reminiscences. George Sprott is a story about time, identity, loss, and the persistence of memory. Though, ultimately, this is the story of a man’s death, Seth leavens it with humor and restraint. Originally serialized in The New York Times Magazine, this greatly expanded and “re-mastered” version is George Sprott’s first publication as a complete work.
Note: An excellent companion to the Seth-edited and designed Collected Doug Wright.
The Collected Doug Wright: Canada’s Master Cartoonist
By Doug Wright. Designed and Edited by Seth.
Hardcover, 9.5 x 14 inches, 240 pages, full color
A career-spanning retrospective of one of the masters of North American cartooning, featuring an introduction by Lynn Johnston
The first of a historic two-volume set, The Collected Doug Wright: Canada’s Master Cartoonist presents the first-ever comprehensive look at the life and career of one of the most-read and best-loved cartoonists of the 1960s. Compiled in cooperation with Doug Wright’s family, it draws from thousands of pieces of art, pictures, letters, and the artist’s own journals to provide a fully rounded view of Wright, both as a cartoonist and as an individual. Wright was a major figure in mid-20th century cartooning and his work was a major influence on the likes of Chester Brown, Dave Sim, Lynn Johnston, and Seth. From the 1950s to 1980, Wright’s weekly strip was read by over 2 million Canadians and was syndicated across the country. Designed by the acclaimed cartoonist and Peanuts designer Seth and featuring a biographical essay by journalist Brad Mackay, this lavish hardcover collection gives Wright’s career the recognition it has long been due. The introduction is by one of the most famous working cartoonists today, Lynn Johnston, of the syndicated heavyweight comic strip For Better or For Worse.
Note: An excellent companion to Seth’s new graphic novel, George Sprott.
