Drawn & Quarterly: Twenty-Five Years of Contemporary Cartooning, Comics, and Graphic Novels is a massive 800-page hardcover thank-you letter to the cartoonists whose steadfast belief in a Canadian micro-publisher never wavered. With hundreds of pages of new and rare comics by Drawn & Quarterly cartoonists, D+Q: 25 features new work by Kate Beaton, Chester Brown, Michael DeForge, Tom Gauld, Miriam Katin, Rutu Modan, James Sturm, Jillian Tamaki, Yoshihiro Tatsumi alongside rare and never-before-seen work from Shigeru Mizuki, Guy Delisle, Lynda Barry, Chris Ware, Julie Doucet, Anders Nilsen, Art Spiegelman, and Adrian Tomine, and a cover by Tom Gauld. Editor Tom Devlin digs into the company archives for rare photographs, correspondence, and comics; assembles biographies, personal reminiscences, and interviews with key D+Q staff; and curates essays by Margaret Atwood, Lemony Snicket, Sheila Heti, Jonathan Lethem, Deb Olin Unferth, Heather O'Neill, Chris Ware, and noted comics scholars. D+Q: 25 is the rare chance to witness a literary movement in progress; how a group of dedicated artists and their publisher changed the future of a century-old medium.
