Librairie Drawn & Quarterly

Every week, Montreal's Librairie Drawn & Quarterly bookstore recommends a selection of new books, including fiction, art books, magazines, and comics.

Fool Magazine #3

Fool Magazine #3

Voted world's best food magazine by the Gourmand Cookbook Awards, Fool combines phenomenal photography with superb writing. The third issue of this Swedish mag includes a lengthy feature on Southern chef Sean Brock, a visit to the samurai city of Murakami, and a history of food in Sweden by Magnus Nilsson.

A Matter of Life

A Matter of Life
by Jeffrey Brown

In this autobiographical comic, Jeffrey Brown assembles memories into an exploration of matters of life, death and faith. Though more somber in tone than Brown’s Vader books, the book still boasts the cartoonist’s much-loved sense of humour and drawing style.

Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life

Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life
by Ulli Lust

This memoir of punk-rock vagabondage, set in 1984, has already won a sack of European comics awards and is now available to eager readers in English. It's a frank, funny, occasionally brutal coming-of-age story about a 17-year-old girl knocking around Italy for the summer with her not-entirely reliable best friend. There's plenty of sex, drugs, and violence, though it's Lust's insight and sensitivity that really make it shine.

Aperture 211

Aperture 211

Aperture published its first issue in 1952 under the direction of a group of some of America's foremost photographers: Minor White, Ansel Adams, and Dorothea Lange, among others. Since then, it's evolved into the Aperture Photography Foundation, one of the world's most influential organisations devoted to the development of photography as an art form. Recently, the magazine has been relaunched in a luxurious new format, with an editorial mandate attuned to photography's position in the contemporary art world and its status in a post-digital image economy. This new issue is the second since the relaunch (our first at Librairie D+Q) and includes work by German pioneer Thomas Ruff, a conversation between scholar/curator Peter Galison and artist Trevor Paglen, and essays by David Campany and Brian Sholis, plus lots more!

One Night, Far From Here

One Night, Far From Here
by Julia Wauters

Published by Flying Eye Books, a new imprint of Nobrow Press, this kid's book by French author and illustrator Julia Wauters is brimming with familiar and exotic beasts from around the world. Transparent pages of flora turn to uncover tiny animals living in forests, deserts, jungles and oceans that will delight big and tiny eyes alike.
