“So we took a ride to Bayamo city which has a strong cultural traditions (words taken from tourist guide afterwards). In the very heart of historical or as we used to say “old city” we have reviewed that beautiful azure building that appears to be provincial Academy of Plastic Art. Windows were open so we were able to see how art students do their chores.
The name of the plastic arts academie Oswaldo Guayasamin is from an ecuadorian artist, his paintings belong to the social realism, descriving the suffering and explotation of the indigeneus american people. He identified himself with aims of the cuban revolutions and was many times in Cuba. A mural painting he did can be seen on the International Airport in Madrid”.

It’d be in Dedication category but it’s the end of the our mini-comics “Legoiner”. Kind of documentary proof page. Yes, everything we wrote about – it’s true. No, seriously!

Dear Readers!

Just received back an envelope with 2 books I sent to Jerusalem readers. Please next time provide us with complete address on local language! Sometimes postal guys can’t read English or confused by something else so they prefer to send us back the books instead of accomplish their mission. Sorry for delay.

Dear Reader

Ah, Gilgamesh!

TCJ #301: Joe Sacco on Footnotes in Gaza | The Comics Journal.

Joe Sacco: Well, I guess my major bias would be — if you want to call it a bias — that the Palestinians have been historically wronged. They were kicked out of their homeland in 1948 and we’ve seen the results ever since. They’re dispossessed.  

Year, right.  Here’s the latest news:  “The Middle East “quartet” of international mediators (UN, Russia, USA, EU) condemns the attack took place August 18 in southern Israel and the subsequent attacks and bombings. Representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of France broke sharply criticized the Palestinians. He said that the administration of Hamas in the fight against terrorism is so inefficient that “their actions can not be named.  According to Foreign Minister Alain Juppe, “nothing can justify acts of terror and damage to the civilian population of Israel at a time when all efforts should be aimed at achieving a lasting peace in the region.”

À la recherche du silence

Paris Sketch Book by Tania S. Yuditskaya, 2006. It was extremely beautiful book! I think we going to reprint it too.

Guy Delisle’s new book


From Comics Reporter: “Jerusalem: Chronicles From The Holy City powerfully captures the conflict of the Gaza War, a three-week long military strike that resulted in over 1000 Palestinian deaths, while also showcasing olive gardens, check points and the architecture of the region. There has never been a book like it and it will surely become a handbook on the region…”

Oh,yeah?! You don’t say!

We love Guy Delisle’s books but one and only handbook on the region?… Com-on! Give me a break!

Jerusalem: Chronicles From The Holy City by Guy Delisle

The first printing will be 30,000 and will come out in North American during the Spring 2012 season. Can’t wait!
