TAXI in stores in Holland today!


Great news: The Dutch edition of  TAXI  officially hits stores in Holland today! English readers will have to wait a bit longer: The book will come out in US/UK/Canada by September 10, 2019. About the book:
“TAXI is De Jongh’s first autobiographic graphic novel, based on taxi rides she had in four cities: Los Angeles, Paris, Jakarta, and Washington, DC. As the drivers slowly open up about their personal lives, de Jongh does too, even when it means challenging her own ideas and prejudices. Through these vulnerable and often humorous moments, de Jongh finds common ground with the people driving her. TAXI is an ode to taxi drivers everywhere.”

If you’re in Holland, you can get your copy now, from Tuesday May 27th onwards at any comic book store. Good to know: it might take another day for all shops to have the book in store. Signing sessions in the Netherlands and Belgium will be announced soon. For more info, press, signing sessions, and inquiries about rights and licensing, contact my publisher Scratch Books:

What others say about TAXI:

“I love it. The way it flows. The lush and fluid brushwork. The fullness of all the characters. The humanity. Bravo.” – Craig Thompson (Blankets, Habibi)

“This beautifully woven series of vignettes from the brilliant Aimee De Jongh are a necessary and poignant reminder of our common humanity.”
– Joe Sacco (Palestine, Footnotes in Gaza)

“TAXI! perfectly embodies comics’ unique power, as parallel narratives echo each other to craft an expansive, empathetic view of humanity. De Jongh is worthy of much wider acclaim as a quiet master of light and shadow, subtlety and environment. Highly recommended.”
– Nate Powell (March, Swallow Me Whole)
