NBM Goodies

 

Last week I received a box of great books from NBM’s recent sale. Apparently NBM are the second largest indie publisher (after Fantagraphics) with sales of over $3 mil a year. That’s impressive. They specialise in non-spandex adventures and translations of European books, as well as American and Canadian works. I took the opportunity to grab some bargains and now they are sitting on my ever growing pile of unread comics and books. They’re all such unique and beautiful books though. Below are  a few photos to try and capture the elegant diversity of goodies.
