I love this book, signed by Eisner, and I especially love this cover, adapted from one of his early comics. This is one of those kind of books that they'll have to pry from my dead bony hands in some forlorn nursing home (assuming of course that I make it that far).
Will Eisner — The Art of Will Eisner
How very, very weird: A couple of years of enjoying your excellent blog, without recognising anything you show us, and then two things come alone at once...
Not only do I own a copy of The Art of Will Eisner (unsigned, of course, you lucky dog), but I also own an old, original, cracked and tatty copy (canvas-backed, with dowels top and bottom) of the Walter Crane map below.
Ah, yes... When the British Empire ruled all the pink bits... (we're currently down to a muddy island in the South Atlantic and a painfully snobbish Tearoom in Nova Scotia.)
Yes, indeed, weird. I'll try to keep showing you stuff you haven't seen, but it's so cool that you have that original map thingie.
I love the British Empire, what there is left of it, and look forward someday to see just how painful that Tearoom might be (my wife wants very much to visit Nova Scotia).
