“The color of things”, by Martin Panchaud. That
Suffering a meadow of adolescents in his neighborhood, Simon follows the advice of a clairvoyant to win the Tiercé a colossal sum that he can only touch with the signing of his parents. Las: his mother is found unconscious in his house, his father fled … influenced by Chris Ware in the art of getting his eye on his pages, the author manages to hold his graphic bet: Tell a story to The help of geometric symbols and pictograms. Welcomed in bookstores (18,000 copies sold since its release in September), the color of things is the second album of the publishing house here and there to win a golden fawn, a year after Ecoute, Jolie Marcia, from the Brazilian Marcello Quintanilha.
