A Graphic Cosmogony

Publisher: Nobrow (Oct 21 2010)

The Judeo-Christian story has God making the universe and everything in it in 7 days. Now the good people at Nobrow have given 24 artists 7 pages each to tell their stories of the creation of everything in A Graphic Cosmogony. The results are strange, beautiful and as varied as the styles of the artists involved.

The book itself is an art object, beautifully printed and bound with stunning cover art by Micah Lidberg. A Graphic Cosmogony is our favorite book yet from Nobrow who, since 2008, has been publishing an amazing assortment of books and comics out of London, UK. Be sure to check out their website for more titles.
