Blexbolex is a multi-award winning French book illustrator working out of Berlin. His stylish and original work has been part of books such as Popo Color, Fusée, Ferraille and Comix 2000. His experimental approach to combining illustration with industrial printing techniques and book production makes him a true pioneer in his field. For Nobrow he has worked on his first two English language books, Abecederia and Dog Crime

Of Blexbolex’s arrival to the UK comics scene, Wim Lockefeer of Forbidden Planet blog said:
‘Good news for all fans of books that combine great graphics, a good deal of experimenting with form and great storytelling: Blexbolex is coming to the UK. Nobrow limited, purveyors of such gems as Nick White’s People I’ve Never Met & Conversations I’ve Never Had or Ben Newman’s collaboration with Scott James Donaldson, ‘The Bento Bestiary’, is publishing the English edition of Blexbolex’s Destination Abécéderia (Les Requins Marteaux, 2008). Blexbolex, who received the award for the most beautiful book of 2008 at this year’s Leipziger Buchmesse (see here on the blog) was born in 1966 and graduated from the Ecole des Beaux Arts d’Angoulême in 1984. He started publishing in 2006, with a detective story that combined an ironic take on all mainstays of the private eye genre, with a fearless playfulness in the art, combining ligne claire with experimentation and all the constraints in the book.’
