Angoulême, oh Angoulême, our sweet patron Angoulême. Too infrequent do your halls open to bear its ripened fruits, too little is the time we have to feast and gather your harvest, too long do we yearn for the coming of the next crop. How thrrrrilled we are to be crowing over your juicy wares in a matter of days! Angoulême 2015 is here! In a handful of hours, team Nobrow (or a portion of us) will be trundling across the border to re-group with some of our favourite European publishers. Together we will toast to solidarity, welcome new faces to the stand and celebrate the year’s releases. Joining us for this round are representatives from Team GB and Team Le France, aka. Jamie Coe (Art Schooled) and Nicolas André (Beyond the Surface), who will be at stand N16 in the Nouveau Monde signing books over the course of the weekend. And just in case you haven’t heard about our newest venture into the digital sphere (time to get out from under that rock), bring yourself over to the table for some demos on what the Nobrow Comics App has to offer. To the Gods of Angoulême, these are our gifts.
Ladies and Gentlemen, today we are extremely excited and proud to officially announce the launch of Nobrow’s venture into the world of digital with the Nobrow Comics App for iPad.
Since its conception Nobrow has championed the works of talented artists whilst consistently seeking to push the boundaries in design, illustration and print. The newest chapter in Nobrow’s journey sees us entering the world of digital creativity. We hope that our offering in this sphere bridges the gap between digital and print and demonstrates how both mediums can work symbiotically to complement each other. No matter which way you choose to digest a Nobrow creation, you will continue to find quality and innovation.
For a limited time only, Hildafolk, Birchfield Close, Obsolete and our first Artist’s Mini Bundle will be available to download for free from the app store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/nobrow-comics/id869287873?ls=1&mt=8 So whatever you do, take some time and have a play.
And if you have any questions, James Wilson our Digital Designer will be on Twitter on Friday 30th of Jan between 11am and 3pm for a live chat to answer any and all your app related questions. You can catch him on #NobrowApp
A few words from Alex Spiro, Co-founder and Creative Director:
“Our aim is to continue to allow print to sing as print, but alongside that to explore the fantastic things that a screen can offer you. Nobrow’s digital products won’t replace what we already love doing, and will continue to do for many years to come, they are merely answers to the question: How can I get as much pleasure from a digital experience as I do from reading a beautifully printed Nobrow book?”
Welcome to Nobrow Comics for iPad!
Giddy up! It’s 2015. A bloomin’ exciting time to be in publishing and an even better time to be filling your mind with stories, art and all things inspired.

We’ve got plenty of new artists to introduce to you and as many new books to keep you on your toes. We’re absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such an incredible pool of talented individuals, so here are just a few whose books you’ll be seeing in the next few months:
