Blankets
Craig Thompson
Publisher: 
Top Shelf Productions
ISBN: 
9781891830433
Edition: 
Paperback
Book Description: 

At 592 pages, Blankets may well be the single largest graphic novel ever published without being serialized first.

Wrapped in the landscape of a blustery Wisconsin winter, Blankets explores the sibling rivalry of two brothers growing up in the isolated country, and the budding romance of two coming-of-age lovers. A tale of security and discovery, of playfulness and tragedy, of a fall from grace and the origins of faith. A profound and utterly beautiful work from Craig Thompson.

The New Printing corrects 3 small typos, widening the spine graphics, but otherwise is identical to the first printing.
