Books of Interest: Chris Ware, Bruce Eric Kaplan

Two books by notable stylists, both coming out many months from now, both contribute covers and  cartoons to The New Yorker. 

Monograph by Chris Ware, due October 10th from Rizzoli.

  From the publisher:“Arranged chronologically with all thoughtful critical and contemporary discussion common to the art book genre jettisoned in favor of Mr. Ware’s unchecked anecdotes and unscrupulous personal asides, the author-as-subject has nonetheless tried as clearly and convivially as possible to provide a contrite, companionable guide to an otherwise unnavigable jumble of product spanning his days as a pale magnet for athletic upperclassmen’s’ ire up to his contemporary life as a stay-at-home dad and agoraphobic graphic novelist.”

 

 

…and this offering from Bruce Eric Kaplan, coming out in the Spring of 2018 from Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers.

From the publisher:“Two words throw a family’s car trip into utter (and smelly) chaos in this hilarious story of denial from Bruce Eric Kaplan. The Krupkes are having a nice, peaceful Saturday morning drive to the grocery store when: it happens.”
