Nelson 1989
We’re excited to be jumping in the Blank Slate tour bus this weekend and heading to Hay Festival with Nelson contributors Rob Davis, Woodrow Phoenix, Sarah McIntyre, Gary Northfield, Kristyna Baczynski and Will Morris.

Be sure to catch the superlative six in conversation with Telegraph film critic David Gritten on Sunday 3rd June night at 8.30PM on the Starlight Stage. For more info, and to book (it’s free), please visit the event’s page on the Hay Festival site here.

From the Festival website:

Join the editors and a selection of artists from behind this beautifully-rendered, Eisner nominated, graphic novel.Nelson tells the story of one woman’s life from birth in 1968 to the present day. Each creator individually details a single event or moment of protagonist Nel Baker’s life before handing over to the next artist, resulting in a vast narrative told via yearly snapshots. Part exquisite corpse, part relay race, Nelson spans decades of British history and combines a myriad of stylistic approaches in a single, compelling graphic novel.
