The Frank Book by Jim Woodring

Fantagraphics Books

Regular price $ 34.99

This book's hero, Frank, is a catlike anthropomorph who lives in a surreal, exotic world. Woodring uses cartoon grammar brilliantly: within a single panel, he captures the round, loose style of classic animated cartoons and conjures the best of early Disney, while simultaneously acting as master engraver, with a quality of line work and elegant shading reminiscent of Gustave Doré. Many of the stories are in b&w, but when color appears, the palette is a cheerful kaleidoscope. 

Since 1991, Jim Woodring's lusciously rendered, hypnotic fables have dazzled readers the world over, and the runaway success of the Frank-co-starring graphic novel Weathercraft and the first true Frank graphic novel Congress of the Animals have only whetted readers' appetites for more.
