You & A Bike & A Road by Eleanor Davis
This is a graphic travelogue that the author drew while on a bike trip from Arizona to Georgia.
I really enjoyed the simplicity of the drawings. There is no colour and there is a lot of white space. In an odd way, I was able to appreciate the beauty of the landscape in my own imagination as rendered by the author. This is a type of raw and sincere storytelling. I also loved the many stories of her encounters with strangers including how many were so beautifully kind to her.
It’s a very simply drawn but a very enjoyable little book.
