A bit of inspiration for the unappreciated striver in all of us? Yes, yes, and more. Embossed cover. Learn More

    For more than 40 years, R. Crumb has documented his nightly dreams in a meticulously kept, written journal. This stood as a guarded secret, strangely enough, while Crumb has never lacked a compulsion to write about the rest of his his comics.

Here they are, entirely untamed, springing forth from forces beyond even his control--his own sub-conscious. All published for the first time. Lightly illustrated. Learn More

    The visionary Shaun Tan returns to show us five years of new and incredibly original stories, rich with feeling and strangely moving, "about the relationships between animals and human beings. By turns moving, shocking, hilarious, and surreal, Tan's stories place frogs in a corporate boardroom, bears in the legal system, horses on the highway, and more.
