Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - June 25, 2015

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

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


by Sylvie Rancourt

Quebecois cult sensation Melody, Sylvie Rancourt's semi-autobiographical comic of a girl from rural Quebec who becomes an exotic dancer in Montreal, has never been translated into English--until now! With Rancourt's sweet and humorous illustrations and Melody's indomitable spirit, there's nothing our heroine can't handle, be it handsy patrons or deadbeat boyfriends.

Berlin 19

Berlin 19
by Jason Lutes

The eagerly-anticipated newest installment of Lutes' Berlin series is now out, and changes are afoot in this series that starts during the end days of the Weimar republic, leading up to the advent of WWII. A storm is brewing in the spring of 1932, a storm everyone, communists, nationalists, Jews, and Gentiles will have to weather.

If our wealth is criminal then let's live with the criminal joy of pirates

If our wealth is criminal then let's live with the criminal joy of pirates
by Jacob Wren

The newest collection from Jacob Wren (best known for his novel Polyamorous Love Song) compiles two stories and an essay, and only 100 copies were printed. Between a mole infiltrating a Left activist group, complicit postal offices, and meditation on art, emptiness, and spirituality, there's a lot to sink your teeth into in this slim volume.

The Complete Eightball

The Complete Eightball
by Daniel Clowes

For the 25th anniversary of the beloved comic, Fantagraphics is collecting every (very out of print) issue of Eightball in two beautiful hardcover volumes. Written before Clowes made a name for himself through the likes of Ghost World and The Death Ray, Eightball is considered one of the most influential titles of all time, and with the loving care this reprint has received, it's easy to see why.

HB no. 4: Erotica

HB no. 4: Erotica

A Montreal-based contemporary drawing magazine, HB has just launched its fourth issue, with Michael Deforge providing the striking cover for over sixty pages of erotic-themed art. Showcasing watercolours, comics, and everything in between, HB has outdone itself and provided a beautiful space for showcasing the best drawing has to offer.
