New book!

Gene Luen Yang’s graphic novel Boxers & Saints is a diptych — a story told in two books.  And we have just gotten it into the office!

Here’s the cover of the box set.  All the type is on the spine!

And a side view of the spine.

Here’s a full-on view of the box set spine.  It is extremely attractive!

BandS_BoxedSet_BoxCover1_Top

The top!  This is where we put information about what the book is about.

BandS_BoxedSet_BoxCover2

Here’s the back of the boxed set.

BandS_BoxedSet_BoxCover2_Side

And a side view — you can see the spines of the two books in the box.

BandS_BoxedSet_BoxSpine2

Here’s the full-on view of the book’s spines.  You will notice that they match!  Even the ampersand.

BandS_BoxedSet_BoxBottom

And the bottom!  This is where we put the logo.  And, you know, information like price and ISBN and stuff.

BandS_BoxedSet_BoxWrappings

The boxed set emerges from the wrapping, like Venus from the foam of the sea. . . .

(This was a very dramatic moment for us, guys.)

And here’s the box with the two books peeking out the side!  Double-frown from our Saints protagonist!

BandS_BoxedSet_BoxBooksBack

And the reverse image — the backs of the books peeking out from the boxed set.  They’ve got some great quotes on them which you will be seeing pictorally soon!

BandS_BoxedSet_BoxNoBooks

And here’s the box without the books in it.  You can see that the cover image wraps around — and that the box is made of cardboard!

BandS_BoxedSet_BoxersCover

Here’s the cover image for the actual book of Boxers.  It’s like the box, but with more text!

BandS_BoxedSet_BoxersBackCover

And the back cover, with promised excellent quotes.

BandS_BoxedSet_BoxersFlap

And the front flap, which has gods on it!

BandS_BoxedSet_BoxersInt

Here’s an early interior page from the book.

BandS_BoxedSet_SaintsCover

Here’s the cover of Saints — it’s like the box, but with more helpful text!

BandS_BoxedSet_SaintsBackCover

And the back cover.

BandS_BoxedSet_SaintsFlap

Here’s the front flap from Saints.

BandS_BoxedSet_SaintsInt1

Here’s an interior page from Saints.

BandS_BoxedSet_SaintsInt2

Most of Saints is told in black and white, but it has some color highlights, indicating that the main character is having a religious vision.  Here’s one of those.

Boxers & Saints comes out in September.  It’s going to be really amazing, guys.
