This Will Explain Everything
Forest Publishing, an offshoot of the not-for-profit Edinburgh arts collective Forest, is calling for submissions for a new graphic novel anthology and from the sound of it they are open to all sorts of combinations of words and images, not just straightforward comics:
“This anthology is an imaginary encyclopedia: a compendium of knowledge that is true, half-true, false, absurd or very confusing. A reader will come away from this book intrigued, amazed, mystified, puzzled, perplexed, bewildered, bemused and befuddled but not necessarily informed. Your entry should explain something. It can be a piece of disinformation, speculation or thorough nonsense. It could be about how a tractor works, what heart burn really is, an explanation of long-distance running or zen. Facts are fine but, for this project, they are not the ultimate point. We’re looking for unique points of view on a wide-range of objects and ideas.”
More details on how to submit your work for possible inclusion can be found on the official site; the deadline to try your luck is August 30th.
