Non Album Collection 118

Billie Holiday (2017)

Born in Baltimore in 1915, and dead too early in New York in 1959, Billie Holiday became a legendary jazz singer, even mythical. With her voice even now managing to touch so many people, we follow a reporter on the trail of the artist on behalf of a New York daily. Beyond the public scandals that marred the life of the star (alcohol, drugs, violence...), he seeks to restore the truth, revisiting the memory of Billie. Through this investigation, Muñoz and Sampayo trace, through the undertones of racism, and in the wake of the blues, the slow drift of a singer who expressed the deepest emotions in jazz. By internationally renowned Argentine artists, featuring Munoz' strikingly raw heavy blacks, this is not just a biography but a spell-binding art book tribute.

Pretending is Lying (2017)

It is a rare gift to come across a book as tender, affecting and complete as “Pretending Is Lying.” Dominique Goblet, a Belgian painter and sculptor, began working on her graphic memoir in 1995, completing it 12 years later. Jean-Christophe Menu, her editor at the influential French comics press L’Association, which first published Marjane Satrapi’s “Persepolis,” writes in the introduction that the initial pages she showed him “were as impressive as they were pungent. . . . This book smells of oil, grease pencil, humid wood.”

So Long, Silver Screen (2017)

Script by Blutch - Art by Blutch. What is cinema? What is its effect on us? Why do we love it so much? These are all questions to which Blutch seeks the answers in his considered and humble way, drawing on his prodigious cultural knowledge and his gift for the comic book form. He references Burt Lancaster, Jean Gabin, Michel Piccoli, Luchino Visconti, Claudia Cardinale, Tarzan, Psychose, and many more. As much comic book as graphic essay, this reverie on the narrative art of image marks the advent of one of today’s masters of the 9th art.
