Temporama

Temporama takes place in a city where, like any concrete jungle, technology favours the privileged, and nature is quarantined like a virus. A silent picture story told during one night of primal urges and strange happenings, Temporama is a beautifully simple tale told in Clayton’s trademark bold graphic style.

Clayton’s cinematic flair shines through in a tale that almost pays homage to the art house short film, a format that very often touches the realms of a fantastic reality. This is his first individual foray into the field of graphic storytelling but will certainly not be his last.

BELA LUGOSI by Paul Paetzel for sale from tomorrow!

Howdy folks, so we were hoping to release this for Halloween, but spooky forces prevented us from doing so. So here it is now, the very first copy of our next screen printed edition, Bela Lugosi by Paul Paetzel of Biografiktion (a prolific collective which also comprises artists Till Hafenbrak and Ana Albero). The talented trio from Berlin were kind enough to collaborate with Nobrow to release some of their stellar comics and screen printed zines as UK editions – the first of which being this ‘true life story’ of the infamous Bela Lugosi, the actor responsible for early screen adaptaions of Dracula, Frankenstein and The Wolfman. In a career spanning 40 years and 110 movies, he came to define what we think of as classic horror. But don’t take my word for it, come to the shop and see the very first bound copy of the book now.
