Bookseller as Comic Hero

Written on May 5, 2008

The Accidental Bookseller is a weblog of Hélène Lefébure who lives in the UK and posts strips based on her life, including many from her job at a bookstore. Sharp and clever.

Meanwhile, Bookhunter is an entire graphic novel now available online that is perhaps more exciting but distinctly less, well, accurate. But how can you not love a comic book that contains the following: “I’ve dated dozens of Caxtons in the lab. We can just check its rubrication against the BAL entry.”

[The latter via my friend Chris. Thanks!]

    Hello! thank you so much for mentioning me! That made me happy (I’ve linked you back).
    Oh, and when I read: “and my wife liked the idea of clearing some of the many books from the house (insert bookseller laughter here) ” in your more-about-you, that made me laugh indeed. So I made this strip thinking of it: http://h5l5n5-theaccidentalbookseller.blogspot.com/2008/05/bookselling-side-effect.html
    Thanks again and take care!
