Beds are the most intimate of places, where you spend a third of your life. They are quiet places, they are rambunctious places. We are combining prose, comics, illustrations, and interviews into a fantastic (not so) little book all about beds and sleep.

"Here is a wonderful book filled with stories about the one last taboo left in the American bedroom: sleep. Aside from ho

-- Los Angeles Review

When you feel fatigued by the realism and drama, the next page is often full of magic and wonder, a new bend given to reality. Then there are all the comics in the middle that manage to ...more
