And it is a really, really great sale. Here's a couple picks to get you started:
March: I haven't read it, but this book—written by the civil rights icon and senator John Lewis and inked by the fantastic cartoonist Nate Powell—has been getting really great reviews everywhere from NPR to the Washington Post.
Blankets—I mean, duh. If you haven't read Craig Thompson's lovely memoir, do yourself a favor and pick up a fancy hardcover copy for only $25.
The Ticking—I love, love, love the work of Renee French; her art is beautiful and funny and spooky, and the stories she tells are unsettling and often profound. The Ticking is about a strange-looking boy who finds solace in art. Alternately, Micrographia is a book about dung beetles.
