Acclaimed cartoonist Noah Van Sciver grants us exclusive access to the artist's process through this collection of his private sketchbooks created between 2013 and 2017. Covering Noah's time in Denver, White River Junction (as a Fellow of the Center For Cartoon Studies), and Columbus, Ohio, the sketchbook is a record of his failed relationships, sketches of his surroundings, strange recollections from life, and portraits of fellow artists. A candid look at the years in which Van Sciver climbed to the top of his game.
