I tell you something, photographing this thing of beauty was an absolute joy. Crisp paper and an almost palpable palette make up Joost Swarte’s Is That All There Is? which is the first proper English language compendium of his work (cue comic book fans everywhere punching the air).
As more of a comic-book fan wannabe, I can say that this is perhaps one of the most desirable publications that has ever been in this office. With a more-than-just-a-nod nod to Tintin creator Hergé, this surprisingly raunchy book is a big slice of aesthetic pleasure from start to finish and should probably be on everyone’s wish list this Christmas.
