Blab World is the new incarnation of the celebrated art & comics annual Blab! "It's like the New Yorker for Mutants," proclaimed the Los Angeles Reader. Blab World defies description: neither book or magazine, it is obviously a work of art. Over the last decade, BLAB! has accrued countless design awards and honors. Founded in 1986 by acclaimed Chicago-based graphic designer and art director Monte Beauchamp, Blab World has evolved from a digest-sized comics mag into a beautifully designed and printed keepsake. Over the years BLAB! has featured such (now celebrated) illustrators and painters as Chris Ware, Gary Baseman, The Clayton Brothers, SHAG, Camille Rose Garcia, Mark Ryden, and many, many more. Blab World also features selections of "found" graphic ephemera such as Depression-era matchbook covers, Valmor cosmetic labels, vintage decals, and European devil postcards.
