What we’re reading during Book Week Scotland – part 7

On the final day of Book Week Scotland one for the newest artists in DCCS, Anna Coughlan, lets us know what she has been reading lately.

Essex County by Jeff Lemire is a collection of  three stories that pack a punch! – (Tales from the Farm, Ghost Stories, and The Country Nurse). Lemire’s art style is beautifully simplistic, only using black ink on white paper. The minimal dialogue augments the character’s sense of loneliness and isolation.

Prepare for your heartstrings to be pulled!”

– Anna
