Well, this book is much more that we hoped for when first hearing of it. It's an impressive 224 page softcover trade. The cover has French flaps and is printed on a nice textured stock. It's the contents, however, that are the real surprise. Carnet de Voyage is a comics/sketchbook/journal travelogue of Thompson's 2004 journeys to and through France, Morocco and Spain that will have other artists weeping in jealously over the apparently effortless artistry on display. Looks good!
