about

The most elegant comics publisher in North America. - TimeDrawn & Quarterly: Twenty-five Years of Contemporary Cartooning, Comics, and Graphic Novels celebrates the storied transformation of the Montreal publisher whose veneration of the medium's best cartoonists has never wavered. In 1989, when the term "graphic novel" was not commonly heard in the comic shop or bookstore, Chris Oliveros created a comics magazine that took the industry by storm with issues that featured Peter Bagge, Julie Doucet, Carol Tyler, Jacques Tardi, and Seth. Armed with an editorial aesthetic, design sense, and passion for its artists, D+Q grew from a one-man operation into a wildly influential boutique publisher. D+Q is renowned for an author-friendly ethos of high production standards, creative freedom, and fair business practices, with a roster that includes Lynda Barry, Kate Beaton, Chester Brown, Daniel Clowes, Tove Jansson, Shigeru Mizuki, Art Spiegelman, Adrian Tomine, Chris Ware, and others from around the globe.
Drawn & Quarterly: Twenty-five Years is a celebration of the brilliant cartoonists whose talent and loyalty is the core of D+Q's success as an independent publisher. The book digs into the archives and features comics, biographies, personal reminiscences, and photographs; new work by Michael DeForge, Guy Delisle, Miriam Katin, R. Sikoryak, and Jillian Tamaki; essays by Margaret Atwood, Jonathan Lethem, Sheila Heti, and Deb Olin Unferth; and interviews by Jeet Heer and Sean Rogers.
Tom Devlin is Drawn & Quarterly's creative director.
