Exhbit Closes; Book Sales Open

It’s been a very eventful week … The exhibit at the Polar Museum (see previous post) has had a lot of footfall through the half-term holiday, and on Thursday I came in and got to talk with people about the project, which was good fun. That morning, the final paperwork for getting the book to market was signed, and that evening we got to announce to a select group of friends that Vol.1 of the graphic novel will be coming out on 24 November 2022. It’s taken the better part of a year to get everything squared away in order to be able to make that announcement, so it was a great joy and relief to be able to do so.

As I write, the show is in its final hours – as soon as the museum closes this afternoon, it will start coming down to make way for the next exhibit, about remote-sensing ice thickness. Always something interesting happening in Cambridge. At the same time, a new chapter starts for the book, as it is let loose into the world. You can preorder it from Indie Novella if you want it ASAP. If you’re outside the UK, shipping is quite steep, so you may want to hold tight until one of our partner booksellers starts taking orders, as they are better set up for international distribution. The book will be available through Waterstones and Bookshop.org at some point soon – I will let you know as soon as I know how to get it through them. For those on the Continent, there will be a German edition, probably in the spring; I don’t know specifics about that yet, beyond that it will be Asterix-sized. (The UK edition is roughly A5.) Meanwhile, there are postcards with art from the book, and my mini-comic about how I went from animation to polar history graphic novels, both available in the Polar Museum shop.

If you made it to the exhibit – thank you! If you wanted to but were too far away, my condolences – I know exactly how that feels. There is some talk of the exhibit being made available to hire, and if I find out about it going anywhere I will be sure to post that here. I may try to replicate it online, to the best of my abilities.

Thanks for your interest in the project, and keep watching this site for further announcements!
