About the book

A look at the culture and fanaticism of book lovers, from beloved New York Times illustrator Grant Snider It's no secret, but we are judged by our bookshelves. We learn to read at an early age, and as we grow older we shed our beloved books for new ones. But some of us surround ourselves with books. We collect them, decorate with them, are inspired by them, and treat our books as sacred objects. In this lighthearted collection of one- and two-page comics, writer-artist Grant Snider explores bookishness in all its forms, and the love of writing and reading, building on the beloved literary comics featured on his website, Incidental Comics. With a striking package including a die-cut cover, I Will Judge You By Your Bookshelf is the perfect gift for bookworms of all ages.

Quotes

"This playful, self-aware collection of strips and gags on the joys and frustrations of reading and writing is equal parts lighthearted and sincere."-- "Publishers Weekly"

Grant Snider began drawing and writing before he knew what he was doing. Soon it was too late to stop. He has many favorite words, like zephyr, tapir, and skyscraper. He is the author of the picture books What Color Is Night? and What Sound Is Morning? and is the creator of Incidental Comics, which were collected and published in two books, The Shape of Ideas and I Will Judge You by Your Bookshelf. His comics about creativity and the human condition have appeared in the New York Times, the New Yorker, and The Best American Comics 2013. Grant lives in Wichita, Kansas, with his wife, daughter, and three sons, where he also practices orthodontics. You can often find him carrying a sketchbook, lost in his own thoughts, and you can also visit him at grantsnider.com. Grant Snider began drawing and writing before he knew what he was doing.
