intro

W

hen Nobrow Press was founded in 2008 as a small press and screen-printing studio, our idea was to create a new publishing imprint which focused on visual and predominantly illustrated content. Making books proved to be hard work but we relished the challenge. Not everything has always worked out in the way we intended it to... but on the flip side, so many things have exceeded our expectations.

Investing in a new artist is an exhilarating experience and helping someone realize what is often a long standing ambition is genuinely rewarding. With our spring 2017 list, we’ve brought together a diverse and rich list of artists sharing their stories. Whether it is revisiting Robert Hunter’s surreal and bewitching love story (Map of Days) or Hamish Steele’s anarchic comic take on ancient Egyptian myths (Pantheon), I hope the reader will revel in the visual brilliance of any one of our books.

The unlikely gang spend their days looting the desolate supermarket and waiting for the return of the hallowed 'garbage night'. But rumour has it, there's a nearby town where humans still live. The trio join up with Barnaby, a mysterious stranger, and set off into the unknown…
