There are few things better than a nicely designed new package for an "old" favorite to remind you why you loved it in the first place.
Tom Gauld really is a master of the minimal. Details acrue and by the end of the story, he breaks your heart. If there's anyone with more careful pacing than Tom, I'd be surprised.
This new paperback version with new cover and french-flaps lands in stores today. Pick it up and look for some of my favorite sequences—the crow taking up residence on Goliath's desk, the escaping bear, the hovering stone. A gorgeous masterpiece this one.
