ECC Cartoonbooks Club: Shadowology by Jan Oplinus

When I visited our local library, it was by coincidence that my eye fell on a black book cover.
I discovered SHADOWOLOGY, The shady shadow art of Vincent Bal. A tribute to the imagination. (Lannoo, 2017, 160 p.). Vincent Bal is a belgian filmmaker.

The combinations of photo, drawings and shadows are very funny and well found. The creatures and drawings in the book are a kind of creative form of cartoons to me.
This is a book cartoon lovers will like and it fits well in a cartoon book collection.

Talking about shadows, I would also recommend the cartoon book Hersenschim (Albino, 1983, 38 p.) by the Belgian cartoonist Luc Descheemaeker (O-SEKOER). It’s quite difficult to find a copy of this book and I’m glad I have it in my collection.
You find a full scan of the book on Luc’s blog.


Another cartoon book with shadows in the picture, is Humour des Seychelles by Peter Lalande (Des Bulles Dan L’Ocean, 2011, 56 p.). Not far as good as Hersenschim, but worth mentioning.
