(W/A/CA) Anders Nilsen
A keen observerres contained within, Anders Nilsen uses lush, inky lines to craft an enchanting, meditative journey for your coloring tools. A Walk in Eden is a fantastical view of primeval creation, with an exquisite mix of sprawling landscapes and close-up examinations of plants, fungi, and minerals. Though this is a world void of humans, here and there are small reminders of our presence. Nilsen's world is intricate, playful, and inspired, waiting for you to make it your own.

In Poetry is Useless, Anders Nilsen redefines the sketchbook format, intermingling elegant, densely detailed renderings of mythical animals, short comics drawn in ink, meditations on religion, and abstract shapes and patterns. Stick people debate the dubious merits of economics. Immaculately stippled circles become looser and looser, as craters appear on their surface. A trip to Colombia for a comics festival is recounted in carefully drawn city streets and sketches made in cafes. This expansive sketchbook-as-graphic-novel is exquisitely packaged with appendices and a foreword from Nilsen himself.

Assembled from work done in Anders Nilsen's sketchbooks over the course of the year following the death of his fianc?e, Cheryl Weaver, in 2005, The End is a collection of short strips about loss, paralysis, waiting, and transformation - a physical manifestation of grief. The End is a concept album in different styles, a meditation on paying attention, an abstracted autobiography and a metaphysical travelogue, reflecting the progress of his struggle to reconcile the great upheaval of a death, and to find a new life on the other side. The book blends Nilsen's disparate styles, from iconic simplicity to collaged art to finely rendered pieces. This new edition of The End is substantially expanded and revised - it is almost twice as long as the original edition - incorporating new work from the past 15 years that adds greater perspective to an already intimate window into the way we grieve, a process that can span decades. The new material includes added content from the original sketchbooks, over a dozen pages of new comics, a new afterword by the author, additional
