New book new book!  We just got in advance copies of Faith Erin Hicks’ upcoming epic graphic novel The Nameless City.  And it looks lovely!

Pictures!

(This book is going to be so good, you guys.)

Here is the cover!  The bit around the title looks extra shiny because it’s got a) spot gloss and b) embossing.  So cool!

Our main edition (as usual!) is the trade paperback; we’re also doing a paper-over-board hardcover (that means it doesn’t have a jacket) for this book.  Here they both are together.

Spines!

If you’ve seen pictures of the galley, you’ll see that the mysterious semi-circle on the spine lines us with the official Nameless City sigil/insignia.  Like so:

Here are a few of the spines together.  They are very handsome!

And the hardcover and paperback spines together!

Here’s the title page.  This book has French flaps (with great line-art on them).  And what’s that peaking out from under them?

It is a map!  (To my great delight, the map has a sea serpent!)

Interior pages!  While Faith did the art for this book, the colors were done by Jordie Bellaire, and they look lovely.

Here is a page with both main characters on it!

And the inside back cover!

Aw, what great quotes these are!  (This is the back cover.)

Faith Erin Hicks’ The Nameless City is going to be in stores in April!  And you should definitely buy it — it’s going to be fantastic.
