European Imports

In addition to importing French language graphic novels and art books from France, we also import titles from publishers in Italy and Spain, and occasionally other European sources.

For example:

  • Animation art books from Nemo Academy in Florence, Italy
  • Sketchbooks from Ominiky Ediciones in Spain
  • Art books from the Anders Zorn Museum in Mora, Sweden
