What it is by Lynda Barry( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 1,313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How do objects summon memories? What do real images feel like? For decades, these types of questions have permeated the pages of Lynda Barry's compositions, with words attracting pictures and conjuring places through a pen that first and foremost keeps on moving. What it is demonstrates a tried-and-true creative method that is playful, powerful, and accessible to anyone with an inquisitive wish to write or to remember. Composed of completely new material, each page of Barry's first Drawn & Quarterly book is a full-color collage that is not only a gentle guide to this process but an invigorating example of exactly what it is: 'The ordinary is extraordinary'"--From publisher description

She's back! This is a Lynda Barry double-tall: the long-awaited collection of the best strips from her syndicated comics.

This oversized book presents the long strange journey through puberty and life that Marlys and company have experienced.
