Scott McCloud’s incomparable “Understanding Comics”.
I swear you can open this book to any page and it’s amazing.
(ps it’s actually a digital image of a printed copy of a drawing of a painting of a pipe)
Or, more specifically, five digital images of a printed copy of a drawing of a painting of a pipe.
Actually, it’s five digital images of *two* printed copies of a painting of a pipe.
Point is I also read and loved this book and really if you read any sort of comics (printed, digital, photo, webcomics, comic strips, graphic novels, manga…) you should read this book because you’ll appreciate them so much more once you’re done.
