Genre: Comics & Graphic Novels

A celebrated send-up of gothic literature, beautifully adapted into a dark, brooding, and oddly comical graphic novel. Somewhere in the night, a raven caws, an author's pen scratches, and thunder claps. The author wants to write fiction: stories about frail women in white nightgowns, mysterious bumps in the night, and the undead rising to collect old debts. But he keeps getting interrupted by the everyday annoyances of talking ravens, duels to the death, and his sinister butler. Shane Oakley beautifully illustrates New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman's satirical tale.

Позвольте мне рассказать вам о выпивке в неурочное время и о неотвеченных телефонных звонках, о добрых делах и паршивых днях, о разрушении и восстановлении, о прогулках мертвецов и потерянных отцах, о маленьких французских леди в Майами, о доверии волков и о том, как разговаривать с девочками.Есть истории внутри историй, нашептываемые в тишине ночи или выкрикиваемые в шуме дня, разыгрываемые между любовниками и врагами, незнакомцами и друзьями.

Il y aura des gens pour vous affirmer que l’habit fait le moine et, en général, ils ont tort. Toutefois, il serait justifié de dire que, quand le jeune marquis en devenir avait enfilé ce manteau pour la toute première fois, se contemplant dans le miroir, il s’était alors redressé et sa posture modifiée tant il savait, à observer son reflet, que le personnage qui arborait un tel manteau n’était pas un adolescent quelconque, pas un quelconque chapardeur et trafiquant de faveurs. Le garçon revêtu du manteau qui, à l’époque, était trop grand pour lui, avait souri à son image et s’était remémoré une illustration vue dans un livre : le chat d’un meunier dressé sur ses deux pattes de derrière. Un chat décidé, habillé d’un beau manteau et de grandes et fières bottes. Aussi s’était-il attribué un nom. Un tel manteau, il le savait, était d’un genre que ne pouvait porter que le marquis de Carabas... Neil Gaiman Comment le marquis retrouva son manteau

Genre: Art

Novelist, comics writer, scriptwriter, poet, occasional artist - a master of several genres and inadvertent leader of many cults - there are few creative avenues Neil Gaiman hasn't ventured down. From unforgettable books like The Ocean at the End of the Lane and American Gods to ground-breaking comics and graphic novels like The Sandman and Violent Cases; from big screen fantasies like Coraline to small screen epics like Doctor Who; and from short stories to songwriting, stage plays to radio plays, journalism to filmmaking, and all points in-between, The Art of Neil Gaiman is the first comprehensive, full-colour examination of Gaiman's work to date. Author Hayley Campbell, a close friend of Neil's since she was a small child, spent many months rummaging through Neil's attic to source the never-before-seen manuscripts, notes, cartoons, drawings and personal photographs for this book; these are complemented by artwork and sketches from all of his major works and his own intimate recollections. Each project is examined in turn, from genesis to fruition, and positioned in the wider narrative of Gaiman's creative life, affording unparalleled access to the inner workings of the writer's mind. Utterly comprehensive, lavishly illustrated, The Art of Neil Gaiman is the fully authorised account of the life and work of one of the greatest storytellers of all time.
