HABIBI

This book. This cover. This story. Of 600+pages, the intricate work that has gone in illustrating each page of this book, is very ambitious and beautiful. Although the author, Craig Thompson, has take on this tasks before, In his very well known graphic novel blankets. THe construction of the book in itself it’s very well done, from a hardcover filled with gold leaf that interprets the time and place of the story. Sometimes the narration or the dialog in the text is a bit hard to swallow, but it picks up from that to continue a well written fable. I read it in one night sitting, now I’m going to look at the drawings with more detail.
