Scrapbook: Uncollected Works 1990-2004 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The ultimate collection by one of the most recognized talents in graphic novels: includes over a decade of comics and illustrations by the still-under-30 Adrian Tomine, from Pulse to the New Yorker and Esquire, collected together for the first time in one sharply-designed book.

Scrapbook is the first comprehensive Adrian Tomnie collection. Here you'll find the complete run of strips which was originally published in Tower Records' Pulse Magazine which Adrian started when he was only 17, along with comics originally published in Details and a host of other magazines of the past decade. A large section of Scrapbook is dedicated to Tomine's extensive illustration and design work, featuring his best material over the years from virtually every major publication in America, including the New Yorker, Details, Esquire, and the late JFK Jr.-edited George. Tomine's art has also graced popular album covers and posters for bands such as the Eels and Weezer — and it's all included here in this beautifully packaged book.

Review:

"Tomine's comics series Optic Nerve has made him a cartooning icon for the disaffected, 20-something subculture. His work is instantly recognizable — clean-lined, understated, psychologically acute — although his subject matter (young hipsters listening to indie-pop and hitting emotional roadblocks) gets somewhat repetitive in large doses. As its title suggests, the attractively produced Scrapbook collects bits and bobs that didn't make it into Tomine's earlier books: one-page strips about music and heartbreak from Pulse magazine, a few pieces for magazines like Details and Giant Robot, and some pieces abandoned after a page or two (and, in some cases, later reworked). The collection also includes a long sketchbook section, which, Tomine notes, is modeled on similar projects by Robert Crumb and Chris Ware: drawings of people he sees in public, copies of interesting pieces by other artists, casually doodled comic strips without the polished surface of his 'finished' work and commentary on his own artistic process. The book's most entertaining section is devoted to Tomine's commercial illustration work: album covers, New Yorker illustrations and a few advertising posters, in which a single, heavily stylized image suggests an entire narrative. There's little that will surprise Tomine's fans, but it's an entertaining look at the evolution of his style. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Tomine is at the forefront of the younger generation of alternative-comics artists." Booklist

Review:

"Adrian Tomine captures the pathos of young adulthood with vignettes exquisitely rendered in a sharp, comic-noir style." Vibe Magazine

Review:

"Tomine, who has become a cult figure, has brought an aura of cool realism to the world of comics with its blend of the best of independent comics and contemporary fiction." Los Angeles New Times

About the Author

Adrian Tomine has been referred to by fellow Bay Area cartoonist Daniel Clowes as the "Boy Wonder of comics" in part due to his early success in the medium. His work has appeared in almost every major publication in recent years and he was recently dubbed "boy du jour" by Bust magazine.
