A literary graphic novel unlike anything else on the racks, 750 Years tells the story of our time, focusing on one single building in France as it sees its way through the upheavals of history. Beginning in the thirteenth century and making its way towards today, this historically accurate story is the eagerly anticipated debut from Vincent Mahe.

Vincent Mahe is fast being established as one of the most exciting illustrators to come out of France. As well as his contribution to Nobrow 8: Hysteria he has been widely commissioned across the world to illustrate for publications such as the New York Times and XXI Magazine.

"This is a masterpiece. Mahe captures the resilience and history of this city like no other historical work I have ever read. This is the kind of comic that takes a person aback and makes them realize the ingenuity that can be found in this medium. I cannot recommend it highly enough, as I know this book s impact will stay with me for years."
