The best Nobrow book not published by Nobrow! A beautiful and poignant wordless graphic novel. The first graphic novel by illustrator Tom Haugomat.
From the publisher:
A Travers ("Through") follows the trajectory of a man of destiny, who cherishes the dream of becoming an astronaut. From birth to death, all the major stages of his life are evoked. The principle of the book is based on a game of glances between what the character lives and what he sees, always through a particular prism (the keyhole, a magnifying glass, a window, a screen, etc.). A graphic book with dazzling beauty.
