Talking Free (ADE-DRM) Outside the Box: Interviews with Contemporary Cartoonists [Arts]

Outside the Box: Interviews with Contemporary Cartoonists by Hillary L. Chute, an associate professor of English at the University of Chicago, is her collection of in-depth interviews with Exactly Whom It Says In The Title, covering a broad range of well-known graphic storytelling luminaries in the sequential arts field, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher the University of Chicago Press.

This is their featured Free Book of the Month selection for December. This is really nifty, and includes some of my personal favourites such as Scott McCloud and Joe Sacco, as well as other highly influential artists I like such as Alison Bechdel (of Dykes to Watch Out For and “Bechdel Test” fame) and Art Spiegelman (of Maus fame), and more.

Currently free throughout the month of December directly @ the university's dedicated promo page (ADE-DRM ePub available worldwide in return for your valid email address), and you can see more about the title on its regular catalogue page.

This is a ~90 meg file (due to all the images) which you probably don't want to download on a device with data limits.

Description
We are living in a golden age of cartoon art. Never before has graphic storytelling been so prominent or garnered such respect: critics and readers alike agree that contemporary cartoonists are creating some of the most innovative and exciting work in all the arts.

For nearly a decade Hillary L. Chute has been sitting down for extensive interviews with the leading figures in comics, and with Outside the Box she offers fans a chance to share her ringside seat. Chute’s in-depth discussions with twelve of the most prominent and accomplished artists and writers in comics today reveal a creative community that is richly interconnected yet fiercely independent, its members sharing many interests and approaches while working with wildly different styles and themes. Chute’s subjects run the gamut of contemporary comics practice, from underground pioneers like Art Spiegelman and Lynda Barry, to the analytic work of Scott McCloud, the journalism of Joe Sacco, and the extended narratives of Alison Bechdel, Charles Burns, and more. They reflect on their experience and innovations, the influence of peers and mentors, the reception of their art and the growth of critical attention, and the crucial place of print amid the encroachment of the digital age.

Beautifully illustrated in full-color, and featuring three never-before-published interviews—including the first published conversation between Art Spiegelman and Chris Ware—Outside the Box will be a landmark volume, a close-up account of the rise of graphic storytelling and a testament to its vibrant creativity.

Just a reminder that today will probably be the last day to pick up the freebie, if you're interested.

It's changed now. I've seen info about the new one on one or two other threads, so I won't repeat it here. The new title is Looking for Strangers: The True Story of My Hidden Wartime Childhood. Author: Dori Katz.
