Tom Gauld might just be the Edward Gorey of our time, channelling his wry humour and macabre aesthetic through exquisite black-and-white illustrations -- MARIA POPOVA
Each single-page piece is a clever, funny, slightly bonkers riff on a literary theme . . . Sublime * * The Times * *
One of the best cartoonists around! * * BoingBoing * *
Praise for the works of Tom Gauld: Heartwarming * * Guardian * *
At once hilarious and achingly melancholy . . . A quietly essential read * * Wired * *
His economical art . . . is married to dry, incisive humor, making each strip a carefully composed marvel * * Publishers Weekly * *
The ironic takes on key moments in history and literature (Armstrong on the moon, Cathy and Heathcliff wandering the moor) will certainly elicit a few laughs * * Vogue * *
Gauld's deceptively simple panels and sparse, understated dialogue speak poetically . . . Gauld finds humour and hope - as well as coffee and doughnuts - in his portrait of a fading utopia * * Guardian * *
Precise and wryly hilarious * * NPR, Best Books of 2013 * *
