Is this our ‘Brave New World’? Have we yet to enter into it? Or are we on the brink of discovering a world entirely separate from ours: alien, parallel, internal? Inspired by the eponymous dystopian novel written by Aldous Huxley in 1931, Nobrow 7 asks 15 internationally renowned cartoonists, each contributing 4 page visual narratives, and 30 star illustrators to interpret the theme ‘Brave New World’.
45 Creative visionaries take on the theme to produce cutting edge comics and illustration in this fantastic large format anthology that has taken the illustration and comcis world by storm. With contributions from a group of artists that reads like the guest-list of an illustration/comics super-festival: Joost Swarte (Is That All There Is?, Fantagraphics), Tom Gauld (Goliath, D&Q), Jillian Tamaki (Indoor Voice, Drawn & Quarterly), Luke Pearson (Hilda and the Midnight Giant, Nobrow), Anders Nilsen (Big Questions, D&Q), Joseph Lambert (Winner of Ignatz award categories for ‘Outstanding Anthology or Collection’ and ‘Outstanding Artist’ awards for I Will Bite You), Ethan Rilly, Eda Akaltun, Andrew Rae, Rob Bailey, Henry McCauseland, Domitille Collardey, Michael DeForge, and many, many more, Nobrow 7 will exceed your expectations beyond measure.
Nobrow 7: Brave New World will follow the same vein as Nobrow 6 containing 128 pages of the very best of illustration and comics creating talent out there. With a double cover, the magazine is in fact two magazines rolled into one. We continue to showcase illustration in its own right alongside new narrative art from some of the best practitioners here in the UK as well as from the rest of the world.
Praise for Nobrow magazine:
“Nobrow’s bold, expansive formula by dissolving the borders supposedly demarcating illustration and comics. Their fluidity and hybridity infuse each miniature in this expertly crafted, alluringly coloured feast for the eyes, mind and heart.” Paul Gravett, atuthor of 1001 Comic Books:You Must Read Before You Die.
