The Uncivilized Books Lab is proud to announce that we’re partnering with cartoonist Erik Johnson to bring to life his infinite loop comic, Kozmo-Knot. He’s been working on this unique object for 10 years! We we saw Erik’s prototype, we knew we had to help out! Here’s a little about the project:
Kozmo-Knot is the story of a spaceman and a caveman, a campfire and a blaster, a rocket ship, asteroid, a rocky off-world landscape. It’s a kinetic pantomime that takes a reader on a far away journey, then right back where they started … to begin again.
But really, you should check out the project via it’s Kickstarter page, there’s loads more info there! Help us bring this unique object to life! For even more Kozmo-Knot related art and sketches check out this Tumblr.
What is Uncivilized Books Lab? It’s a new label for something we’re already doing: hand made books and comics. Even though we’ve entered the mass market book world with our Graphic Novels a couple of years ago, we still love making comics by hand. It’s how we started out! It allows us to work with different formats, and artist that we might otherwise not be able to work with. We can nurture new ongoing projects like Derek Van Gieson’s Eel Mansions, or do a series of idiosyncratic architecture zines like the Structures series. It our research and development laboratory. And, frankly, it’s loads of fun to do! Even more soon!
