The Black Project by Gareth Brookes


Another brief recommendation for a book I’ve just finished. Gareth Brookes’ The Black Project is a graphic novel (horrible term, but probably apt for work that isn’t a comic but more visual than pure prose) that uses embroidery and linocut. It tells the story of one very young man’s attempts to get a girlfriend… by making one.

It’s not science fiction, if that’s what you’re thinking. Instead, it’s very grounded and I felt a connection with it in a most unexpected way.
