Taking inspiration from Aldous Huxley's seminal 1931 novel of the same name, Nobrow 7 invites forty-five creative visionaries to re-interpret the theme of a "Brave New World." Is this our brave new world? This is just one of the questions posed in a stunning large-format, 128-page presentation that features cutting-edge work from the world's most exciting cartoonists and illustrators.
Comprised of fifteen cartoonists and thirty illustrators, the latest edition of Nobrow's flagship anthology continues to showcase the very best talent in the world of visual and narrative arts. Maintaining the acclaimed flip-cover format of Nobrow 6, Nobrow 7 is, in fact, two titles rolled into one: one side dedicated to comics, the other dedicated entirely to illustration.
45 Creative visionaries take on the theme to produce cutting edge comics and illustration in this fantastic large format anthology that has taken the illustration and comics world by storm. With contributions from a group of artists that reads like the guest-list of an illustration/comics super-festival: Joost Swarte (Is That All There Is?, Fantagraphics), Tom Gauld (Goliath, D&Q), Jillian Tamaki (Indoor Voice, Drawn & Quarterly), Luke Pearson (Hilda and the Midnight Giant, Nobrow), Anders Nilsen (Big Questions, D&Q), Joseph Lambert (Winner of Ignatz award categories for ‘Outstanding Anthology or Collection’ and ‘Outstanding Artist’ awards for I Will Bite You), Ethan Rilly, Eda Akaltun, Andrew Rae, Rob Bailey, Henry McCauseland, Domitille Collardey, Michael DeForge, Angie Wang, Patrick Kyle (Black Mass, Wowee Zonk) and many, many more.

"You want a cool book showing the latest and the best comics design out there, Nobrow will more than double your fun." — Warren Bernard, executive director, Small Press Expo
