You won´t be able to put down this deliciously shameless book about ageing without reading it. The touching writing and drawings have been bound into a sturdy, cloth-spined book. The nice small format and somber black cloth spine make up a compact package.

Ville Ranta´s comic book novel stands out with its pleasant format. The illustrations are proportioned to the page size harmoniously and the book feels nice to read. Untreated, top-quality paper has been chosen to support the intricate handprint of the author. The beautiful water color paintings with their glowing colors are repeated perfectly throughout the book. The illustrated end pages lend the book a polished appearance as they introduce the characters in the book to the reader.
