Named one of Time's top 100 Best Young Adult Books of All Time! "...A rarity: a first-love story so well remembered and honest that it reminds you what falling in love feels like...achingly beautiful." (Time magazine).
A brand-new, hardcover edition, re-sized and with a new cover!
Wrapped in the landscape of a blustery Wisconsin winter, Blankets explores the sibling rivalry of two brothers growing up in the isolated country, and the budding romance of two coming-of-age lovers.
It is a tale of security and discovery, of playfulness and tragedy, of a fall from grace and the origins of faith.
A profound and utterly beautiful work from Craig Thompson.
At 592 pages, Blankets may well be the single largest graphic novel ever published without being serialized first.
