The Night Bookmobile by Audrey Niffenegger

In Audrey Niffenegger’s The Night Bookmobile (Abrams ComicArts, 2010), each night bookmobile is full of all the books its visitor has ever read — no more, no less. Imagine!

It’s a beautifully-drawn graphic novel mostly about books, love, loneliness, death, and identity, but it’s also about librarianship, I suppose. You can read it in one sitting, but I bet you’ll think about it for much, much longer, whether you’re a librarian or not.

Thanks, Marianne Aldrich.
