NEW IN STOCK: Barrel of Monkeys!

barrelWe are pleased to say that Barrel of Monkeys by French duo Florent Ruppert and Jérôme Mulot is finally in-stock at The Beguiling.

Both hilarious and biting, this book is exciting cartooning in action. Phenakistoscopes, stereographs, and some of the most playful panel layouts you’ve read in ages, Barrel of Monkeys makes you un-pack and re-wrap your own baggage of what comics are supposed to look like (let along how to read them). Follow these friends as they irreverently explore the depths of sex and death, the only two things really worth writing about anyways.

An impressive debut by new publisher Rebus Books, Barrel of Monkeys is also Beguiling-Approved because the principle translator is none other than our very own Peter Birkemoe! With a Toronto connection like that, how can you not come and check this book out!
