Alechinsky: Marginalia by Pierre Alechinsky, $45. 216 pages, softcover, color insides.

A principal figure of the Cobra movement, Alechinsky has long held a special fascination for cartoonists, as his paintings always feature wraparound 'marginalia' that flirt with the sequential. This absolutely gorgeous book not only focuses on those areas in his paintings, but highlights his collaborative work with writers and his interest in illustrated book. A key book in any true comics scholars library.
