Nobrow Formally Announces Near-Immediate US Release For Roman Muradov's (In A Sense) Lost And Found


imageNobrow announced earlier today through US representative Tucker Stone the imminent release of the debut graphic novel from illustrator and cartoonist Roman Muradov: (In A Sense) Lost And Found. While it has been discussed as a future release on this site and by Muradov through his own social media presence, Stone tells CR they had yet to make it official.

The book will arrive in stores September 9, with a release part on September 6 at Mission Comics & Art in Muradov's home base of San Francisco. The publisher describes the book as follows:
The world of (In a Sense) Lost and Found is one that is immersed in surrealistic wordplay and fantastic places beyond what we've trained ourselves to see. It's an atmospheric fable about what it means to grow up in a world where innocence is a tangible object, and how that innocence can be lost, found, mistreated, and commodified. Muradov's crisp compositions and delicate art style are equal parts playful and haunting, creating an enchanting world of shadowy places in between the known, while illuminating the lives of the people who live there.
Muradov is also a guest of this year's Small Press Expo.

The full-color hardcover will cost $19.95 for I think approximately 80 pages -- the publisher supplied no formal information. Update: The artist says it's closer to 50, and thus ends my career counting book pages. He also notes that it's not particularly an all-ages book, although he understands it may be sold that way by some. Update 2: Publisher says it's 56 pages, 6.75 X 9.5 inches, and confirms the price. Diamond code is STK648125.

Muradov is an illustrator whose clients have included The New Yorker, the Wall Street Journal, Vogue, Time and the Washington Post. He can be found on-line here.
