New Arrival: Hideaki Otsuka


Hideaki Otsuka, The Birth Of A Snail
Paperbound

The new book by Hideaki Otsuka just arrived from Japan this week and we're already down to our last few copies! Seems to be about the passionate, but troubled relationships between slugs and snails. Weird, but very sweet.

Two editions of Joseph Moncure March's sordid Jazz Age tale of debauchery and murder told in rhyming couplets. The first edition is a numbered, limited, private press edition from 1947. The 1994 edition is designed and illustrated by Art Spiegelman in a style inspired by the 1920s and 30s wordless woodcut novels of Frans Masereel and Lyn Ward.
