We are so excited to be releasing The Rose Metal Press Field Guide to Graphic Literature this summer! It’s an amazing craft guide and collection. Nicole J. Georges, author of Fetch: How a Bad Dog Brought Me Home, writes of the Field Guide: “This is such a beautiful, helpful book. If comics is a giant dome, with your story locked inside, The Field Guide to Graphic Literature presents you with 28 different philosophical doors into that world. The practicality of this book, and its acknowledgement of the myriad of avenues and practices in comics, makes me feel inspired as both a creator and a teacher.”
Here’s a sneak peek at the front cover of the book. Preordering will begin in late February 2023. Special thanks to Pamela Callahan for the wonderful crow artwork and Heather Butterfield for the beautiful cover design!
