The Fate of the Artist

£24.99

Product description

In this pseudo-autobiography, the subject of the memoir has vanished without a trace. Through six separate threads, each on typographically and stylistically distinct, a private investigator tried to discover the artist's fate through false trails, family and daily life reenactments, and even an imaginary Sunday comic strip. As the narrative threads intersect and colllide in surprising ways, the reader is carried along on a fantastic journey through the life of the artist.

A master comics artist, here Eddie Campbell offers a complex, caustic, and surprising meditation on balancing the lonely life of the artist with the demands of everyday life.

First Second hardback with no DJ. Half binding with black linen cloth, the itnervening boards being an illustration. The outside of the rear cover shows the reverse of that on the front i.e.with the print reversed and the back of the constructed picture on the front. No marks and good binding.

Nice little book
