Shelf Candy Saturday!! (25)

Hello fellow readers and bloggers and all around nice people!
Welcome to another edition of Shelf Candy Saturday.
Thanks to Five Alarm Book Reviews for hosting!

Now-
Onto the Shelf Candy!

My Shelf Candy for this week is








Flight Volume 3

You can find more of Kazu's art and graphic novels here on his webpage.

What do you think?
Goodreads page
here.

This is an anthology of beautiful graphic stories.
The main author/contributor/creator is Kazu Kibuishi. He is amazing! I've been buying the Flight series since I first went to Comic Con many years ago. What's awesome is that they had their own booth and most of the artists were there and you would buy your copy of Flight and they would all sign it for you!
I haven't been to Comic Con in a while, but I heard they're still there.

Anyway, this is one of my favorite covers.
I have a print of it in my house too.

I love the overall green tones, the wooden bridge on the left. The way the tree house spirals up into an easy point to the top. The man and his companion bird approaching the setting.

I want to live here!
With my books. And Bunnies. And hubby. Doesn't that sound nice?

  4. No kidding, this is one of the most amazing illustrations that I have seen. The colors, the softness and all of that amazing fantasy driven detail. This is a great choice. Thank you so much for sharing it.

  8. wow, this is gorgeous. I love the whimsy. It just seems like it would be a blustery day and that the wind has twisted the top of the little house! It makes me smile and I totally see why you have the print. It is intriguing and draws you right in. great choice.
