Editor, Alex Spiro has assembled twenty-four artists and, with a nod to The Book of Genesis, asked each of them to "take on seven pages to tell their tales of the creation of everything." As those who are familiar with the NoBrow works on display here at Copacetic already know, their publications are finely crafted and produced in an engaged, hands-on manner, in keeping with the company's stated aim "to place a renewed focus on quality in print." The company maintains a special focus on hand-separated planes of flat color that gives their entire catalogue a wholly unique feel, and now, with A Graphic Cosmogony, they have produced an amazing 176 page hardcover volume – by a large margin the most ambitious assemblage they have yet to produce – that will pop your eyes out and knock your socks off! It's hot off the press and it's here. Check it out. BACK IN PRINT!!! and... NOW AT A SPECIAL WELCOME BACK PRICE!
Inspired by Scotney Castle in Kent, the five tales that make up this volume are each drawn by a different artist, and each cover a different era in the castle's history. Each of the stories is complemented by an historical essay that provides a factual backdrop for context and backgroun. A clothbound edition printed in Latvia on quality flatwhite FSC paper, in an appealing duotone of peach/orange and brown, this book is a treat.
