Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - October 24, 2013

Librairie Drawn & Quarterly

In the weekly Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week, the Montreal bookstore recommends several new works of fiction, art books, and comics.

Librairie Drawn & Quarterly is one of Montreal's premiere independent bookstores.

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

Rage of Poseidon

"Rage of Poseidon"
by Anders Nilsen

In case you missed out on last year's handmade version of Rage of Poseidon, Nilsen’s unique take on the classic character of Greek mythology in a contemporary setting, now’s your chance to get your hands on a copy, in this brand new release from D+Q. Albeit, this edition isn’t handmade, but with its fold-out, accordion-style pages bound in canvas, and its black and white silhouette illustrations, it’s a lovely object to behold nonetheless! Also, keep your eyes peeled, because D+Q will soon to be reprinting Nilsen's 2007 classic Dogs & Water.

The Great War

"The Great War"
by Joe Sacco

Sacco’s latest, which is about the first day of the Battle of the Somme during WWI, promises to be a favorite of history buffs everywhere! Though wartime is a familiar theme in Sacco’s work, The Great War is a departure from his previous books, insofar as the story is told in a 24-foot long panorama illustration, which folds out accordion-style and is accompanied by a book of footnotes and annotations. Mesmerizing stuff.

Isa Does it

"Isa Does It"
by Isa Chandra Maskowitz

From the woman behind the popular website Post Punk Kitchen comes a new collection of mouth-watering, satisfying and simple vegan recipes for everyday meals. Filled to the brim with cooking tips as well as recipes for everything from sides to mains to desserts, even the most steadfast omnivores are sure to find something in here to tantalize their tastebuds!

The Kinfolk Table

"The Kinfolk Table"
by Nathan Williams

Williams traversed the globe in his quest to gather the most beloved recipes of a plethora of well-curated contributors, including chefs and bakers, but also noteworthy artists and bloggers. Maintaining the aesthetic of the ever-popular lifestyle magazine Kinfolk, this cookbook features not only recipes, but also lovely photo spreads of and writings about the people and places behind the recipes, showing how a home-cooked meal shared with loved ones is about so much more than just filling one’s gullet!


by Corinne Maier and Anne Simon

Say what you will about Freud, there’s no contesting the fact that he was one of the 20th century’s most influential figures. Now you can read all about the fellow’s life in this new illustrated biography! Nobrow consistently nails it with regard to aesthetic appeal, and with such interesting subject matter to work with, you can be sure that Maier and Simon have brewed up something special within the pages of Freud.
