THE SILENT INVASION COMPLETE SET

The GREAT FOOD IN COMICS SET

The GREAT FOOD IN COMICS SET
Franckie Alarcon
Two delicious books in comics on food reunited! Sushi and Chocolate are explored.
Fly to Japan and come discover all there is to know about sushi. After revealing the secrets of chocolate to us, Franckie Alarcon offers a gourmet panorama of this exceptional dish that has conquered the planet! But do you really know sushi? The author traveled to Japan to meet all the players involved in the making of this true work of culinary art. From the traditional starred chef to the young cook who is shaking up the rules, including all the artisans and producers involved, this book covers the most emblematic of Japanese products from A to Z. A fascinating journey of discovery that, along the way, tells a lot about Japan itself. You'll never believe the precision and detailed obsession with quality ingredients involved.
And for Dessert: Following Jacques Genin for a year, Franckie Alarcon hobnobbed with one of the biggest chefs of Chocolate. Former chef and pastry chef for prestigious restaurants, this super-talented autodidact shares all his passion and knowledge of chocolate and his process for creating recipes. In this docu-comic, we travel with the starry-eyed author, satisfying many a craving from the chef's amazing atelier above his store, trying his hand as an apprentice, all the way to the Peruvian cocoa plantations where another chef shows how one carefully chooses the beans.
8x10, 272pp, 2 full color hardcovers in one specially priced set, $39.99 (normally $45),

ALGORITHMIC REALITY

ALGORITHMIC REALITY
Damian Bradfield, David Sánchez
Your phone reminds you all day long that you were interested in buying those shoes. Your device knows the places where you go, the books you like and your friends' faces. The world's most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data. The more they know about you, the better you can be targeted, and then, monetized. The British businessman Damian Bradfield, co-founder of WeTransfer, and the Spanish comics author David Sánchez build an ironic dystopic world, disturbingly similar to ours, to explore the addictive effects of social media, the stealthy invasion of privacy and the dangers of data misuse. With a wry acidic sense of humor, they blur the boundaries between the online and offline worlds and spin disturbingly recognizable tales about our overconnected society.
Reviews
See the Fast Company article and interview of Bradfield
"Algorithmic Reality is a warning against the pernicious influence of Big Tech and the short-termism of technology. The narrative is rendered all the more powerful by Sánchez's rigid illustration style."
-Fast Company
"This potent collection succeeds in raising alarm bells about the loss of privacy and autonomy in the digital age. It's enough of a rattle to even keep readers off their phones (at least for a few days)."
-Publishers Weekly
