In-store Book Launch: The Rose Metal Press Field Guide to Graphic Literature

Co-editor Kelcey Ervick and contributors Naoko Fujimoto, Scott Roberts, Marnie Galloway, and Lauren Haldeman will join us in our downstairs event space to launch The Rose Metal Press Field Guide to Graphic Literature. 

The fourth volume in the immensely popular Field Guide series, The Rose Metal Press Field Guide to Graphic Literature gives readers unprecedented insight into the techniques of 28 of today’s most innovative creators of poetry comics, graphic narratives, and image-text hybrids. From mark-making and page composition to deeper renderings of place, character, and voice, this much-needed guide to the field illuminates and demystifies the process of creating image+text work. Editors Kelcey Ervick and Tom Hart also provide a historical introduction that links today’s graphic literature to visual storytelling of the past and helpful pedagogical resources to round out the volume. 

"This book is a good first step to unlearning what you think you know about comics, a medium so vast, it's mind-blowing. It's inspiring to see the processes of such diverse, talented artists, and to be let in on their creative philosophies."

—MariNaomi, author of I Thought You Loved Me
