Nice Art: Roman Muradov’s (In A Sense) Lost and Found

InASense_Cover.jpg

Let’s end this week with some art! No publisher puts out more consistently beautiful books than Nobrow, and "(In a Sense) Lost and Found&quot by Roman Muradov is no exception. Muradov is best known for his illustrations in the New Yorker, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal; although he’s been in mini comics and anthologies before this is his first graphic novel.

Like all Nobrow books, Muradov’s debut is graphically sharp, with block of bold flat color giving shape to his delicate drawings; a kids book style all grown up. The story is a fable involving innocence as a tangible object, sending the hero on an ephemeral quest — it’s the kind of imaginary yet evocative tale that comics are great at capturing.

(In a Sense) Lost and Found goes on sale September 9.
