2016: 50. Hark! A Vagrant

Hark! A Vagrant, Kate Beaton

If you aren’t familiar with Kate Beaton, you are missing out.  Anyone with any interest in this blog, would go nuts for her literary/historical cartoons, where she just goofs on figures in history or literature.  Plus some sociological tropes.  I’d read many of the strips before on her blog, Hark! A Vagrant, but even so, reading them all in a collection was a delight.  And if you haven’t seen her work, you are in for a treat and a half.  Especially if you are, like Beaton, Canadian.  There are some Candian deep cuts, here.

 Not in the book, but just to give you a taste. Copywright Kate Beaton (link at http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=348)
