It features the journal pages of sixty artists from around the world and across history, including nostalgic favorites like Jean de Brunhoff, Tove Jansson, and Beatrix Potter and contemporary icons like Beatrice Alemagna, Oliver Jeffers, and Shaun Tan.

A treasury of rough sketches, note-filled margins, collaged pages, color explorations, and thumbnail drawings reveals the importance of the journal in the artmaking process.

This beautifully designed anthology offers readers a glimpse into the raw imagination at the heart of stories and characters treasured across generations. INTERNATIONAL ROSTER OF ARTISTS: This collection includes the sketchbooks of a diverse range of illustrators hailing from the United States, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, China, Japan, and South Korea.

An artist's autobiographical manga about her father's alcoholism, which inspired a critically acclaimed live-action film. In this diary-style manga, Mariko Kikuchi tells the painful story of her father's alcoholism, and her own journey through guilt and self-blame to understand her father's illness. She rejects the common belief that family members can and should be forgiven for anything they do, no matter how much harm they cause. This powerful, self-contained manga began as a web series that went viral, and went on to inspire a 2019 film in Japan. Now this groundbreaking work about the ripple effects of addiction will be released in English for the very first time.

A fighter pilot with an instinct for aerial combat, Billy Bishop racked up seventy-two officially confirmed victories and was awarded every major medal including the Victoria Cross. By the end of the First World War, he was considered so valuable as a symbol of the war effort that Canadian authorities insisted he be grounded: his loss would have been devastating to civilian morale. John Lang's graphic biography touches briefly on Bishop's fortuitous beginnings in Owen Sound, Ontario and then shifts smoothly to the early years of the war and Bishop's emergence as a leader and warrior among his fellow infantry recruits. In a famous, revelatory incident, the Earth-bound Bishop, mired knee-deep in mud, looks up to see a plane belonging to the Royal Flying Corps soaring overhead. That, he decides, is the element for him. Over the next couple of years Bishop tested himself repeatedly against the best German pilots—and always won.
