book cover
Fond memories and old habits compete with modern distractions in this contemplative and atmospheric new work from Jon McNaught, with a meditative art style that makes the ordinary, extraordinary. A family sets off for a long weekend at a campground next to the ocean. We follow them through the familiar landscapes of a summer break: gas stations, windswept cliffs, dilapidated museums, and tourist giftshops. Richly illustrated and sparsely worded, Kingdom explores the rhythms of nature, the passing of time, and the beauty and boredom of a summer holiday. A great new story for fans of Richard McGuire.
