From impossibly cute illustrative and graphic titles from London’s amazing (and amazingly prolific) Nobrow Press to stunning, locally published fine-art monographs of Melbourne’s Benjamin Armstrong and Nicholas Mangan, today we’ve selected a bunch of art and illustration titles for your perusing pleasure.

Nobrow Magazine #5

Ben Newman – Ourobros

Lovely stuff from Ben Newman, one of the central artists contributing to Nobrow’s burgeoning success.

Benjamin Armstrong – Holding a Thread

In recent years, Benjamin Armstrong has established himself as one of contemporary Australian art's finest. Comprising his alien glass sculptures, stunning painting practice and working methodology, this wonderfully produced volume is an equally beautiful and important document of a young artist at the height of his powers. Holding a Thread comes courtesy of small Sydney publishing house Emblem.

Maya Hayuk – Round the Way

Nicholas Mangan – Notes From a Cretaceous World

Jack Teagle – Jeff Job Hunter

Carol Lee Mei-kuen – Threads of Luminosity

Ben Newman and Scott Donaldson – The Bento Bestiary

More Nobrow magic! Good, even if a little scary, for the kids.

Jon McNaught – Pebble Island

A stunning little book from Jon McNaught and Nobrow. This is everything a illustrated book should be.
