Benton’s ‘B+F’: A Book to Look Into

Brooklyn-based artist Gregory Benton’s labor of love, “B+F,” is hitting this fall and it deserves your attention.

Benton had drawn a 17-page version for the 2013 MoCCA Fest in the spring, in a limited, oversized edition. The work won a festival prize. Then came buzz and an exhibit at the Society of Illustrators.

Now, the affable Benton’s getting to take the book wide. A 64-page version of the story will be published this month by Adhouse in the US and Editions Ça et La in France.

As Benton put it: “’B+F’ explores an otherworldly terrain with a woman and a dog as they encounter its denizens, both benevolent and malicious. It’s a wordless meditation on goodwill, hostility, and isolation.”

The hardcover will run $24.95 and will be available in shops and online. A 10-page preview can be downloaded here from the Adhouse books site:
