A funny and insightful retrospective collection from a celebrated cartoonist. Universally beloved cartoonist Guy Delisle showcases a career-spanning collection of his work with a sly sense of humour and warm characterization. Before Delisle became an international superstar with his globe-hopping travelogues, he was an animator experimenting with the comics form. Always aware of the elasticity of the human form and honing his keen observer s eye, young Delisle created hilarious set pieces. World Record Holders ranges from wistful childhood nostalgia to chagrined post-fame encounters, touching on formally ambitious visual puns and gut-busting what-ifs. Delisle again and again shows how life is both exhilarating and embarrassing. Delisle visits an exhibition of his work in another country and is confronted by an angry spouse who blames him for destroying her marriage. A juvenile game of Bows and Arrows turns menacing as arrows shot straight up in the air turn into barely visible missiles of death. A coded message from space creates different reactions from different people debates, dance festivals, gallery shows. Translated by Helge Dascher and Rob Aspinall.

Praise for Guy Delisle: 'One of the greatest modern cartoonists.' The Guardian
Born in Quebec City, Canada, in 1966, Guy Delisle now lives in the south of France with his wife and two children. Delisle spent ten years working in animation, which allowed him to learn about movement and drawing. He is best known for his travelogues about life in faraway countries: Burma Chronicles, Jerusalem: Chronicles from the Holy City, Pyongyang, and Shenzhen. He has since expanded his oeuvre by telling a Doctors Without Borders acquaintance s story as a nail-biting thriller (Hostage) and revisiting his teen years and first summer job (Factory Summers). In 2012, Delisle was awarded the Prize for Best Album for the French edition of Jerusalem at the Angouleme International Comics Festival.
