[ARC] Vox by Matteo De Longis

Standard

Vox è una raccolta di immagini e grafiche dell’autore che rimandano al tema della musica; non è quindi una graphic novel ma un art book.

Le immagini – definite, coloratissime e decisamente ben costruite – rimandano a strumenti e accessori musicali (il titolo stesso è un rimando a una nota marca di amplificatori) e hanno generalmente come protagoniste ragazze affascinanti e sensuali.

Il formato del libro in carta è quello di un disco in vinile, e sicuramente è più spettacolare della versione digitale che ho sotto mano io.

Ringrazio l’editore per avermi fornito la copia necessaria per stendere questa recensione.

Vox is a collection of images and graphics made by the author that are related to music; it’s not a graphic novel but an art book.

The images – defined, colorful and well constructed – are about musical instruments and accessories (the title itself reminds to an amplifier brand) and the main characters are fascinating and sensual girls.

The hardcover format is like a vinyl disk, and it’s surely more spectacular than the digital edition I am reviewing.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.

[ARC] Cozy Classics: Emma and Jane Eyre by Jack & Holman Wang

Standard

Leggi questo articolo in Italiano

The “Jane Eyre” and “Emma” by Cozy Classics are two very concise but spectacular books: in each of them with 12 words – paired with images – the entire novel is summarized.

Maybe it’s more easy to enjoy them if the novel is already known, however this collection idea is new and the final output is very well-finished.

The images are “scenes” from the novel to which the word, used to summarize an entire situation, refers and are played by dolls like the ones in the covers.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
