Julie Delporte's Everywhere Antennas looks good in the office.

Well it's that time of year again: The rest of you are all enjoying the first signs of spring—maybe pulling out your lighter jackets, dusting off your sunnies, experiencing the first inklings of bikini anxiety. Not over here in Montreal. The only reason we even know it's March is because we're wrapping production on all our spring books, which means we've got something pretty to show you today.

Above is the cover of Julie Delporte's Everywhere Antennas. This is Julie's first book with us, and we're ~~~very~~~ excited about it.

Everywhere Antennas follows our struggling narrator, Lily, as she comes to terms with a rare and misunderstood sensitivity to the radioactivity of urban life.

Julie's pencil crayon images show loosely-constructed pasted-together fragments of a life in transition. And they work perfectly to tell this story.

Her words are poetic, sometimes even poetry.

And one of my favourite parts: we're treated to a really beautiful pencil chapter that's a little divergent from Julie's other work, a little more standard comics-y.

And here's all of it, in one pile.

Watch for Everywhere Antennas in stores this May. We'll be dragging Julie along to TCAF so make sure you swing by the booth and get Julie to sign your very own copy, okay?
