Avery Hill First Look: ‘Quiet Thought’s By Karen Shangguan

More new things to make a note of in your diaries – Avery Hill Publishing announces yet another great new graphic novel, collecting the works of Karen Shangguan – Quiet Thoughts.

Avery Hill are one of Britain’s small publishers who’ve got a history of bringing us great works of comics from new and interesting talents, with the best example of that being the fact they were the first to publish the works of Tillie Walden (the collection of her Avery Hill work comes out as Alone In Space in June), but they’ve also got a publishing list packed full of books I love. Just off the top of my head, they’ve published Rachel Smith, Jules Scheele, Tim Bird, Simon Moreton, Zoe Thorogood, Owen D. Pomery, Katriona Chapman – all of whom have made books I love.

They have a particular habit of finding books that consider the contemplative side of life, and Quiet Thoughts appears to be very much along those lines, described by Avery Hill as “a contemplative journey that explores how it feels to be alive’, where ‘Shangguan’s warm and lyrical narratives capture fleeting moments and sensations; while her shifting perspectives take in all of existence from the emptiness of space to the intimacy of human interactions.”

And from the looks of the preview below we think you’ll agree that it looks quite lovely and one that I’ll be looking at when it’s out in August.
