Editorial Reviews

Review

...a beautifully illustrated collection of work by artists and architects who build in the landscape using natural materials and low-tech means. -- Public Art Review, July 1, 2008

...a beautifully illustrated collection of work by artists and architects who build in the landscape using natural materials and low-tech means. --Public Art Review: (6/30/08)

Recommended Reading: Some observations spark amusement, others a sense of doom. --Communication Arts: (11/5/08)

"In light of all the political madness (Go Obama!) and nearly disastrous storms, this book seems very appropriate. Its a collaboration of artists ideas of the future. Through charts, graphs, maps, illustrations, interviews and comics, designers predict or comment on others predictions about what the world might become hundreds of years from now. I love Julia Hoffmans Lets Get Carbon-ated questionaire where you receive points based on your answers that ultimately let you know the magnitude of your carbon footprint." --Book By Its Cover: (September 2, 2008)

"In the long tradition of books making predictions for the future, comes Nozone X: Forecast, a collection of mostly doom and gloom scenarios by graphic artists, cartoonists, and illustrators." -- Brent Aldrich --Englewood Review of Books: (September 5, 2008)

Nozone skewers, gaffes, garrotes and otherwise thwacks conventional thought in ways that will have Johathan Swift spinning in his grave... Like its immediate predecessor, Empire, Forecast is an absorbing, rebellious, rambunctious response in art and thought to the many disasters that man has wrought. (Design Arts Daily, 10/22/08)Nozone skewers, gaffes, garrotes and otherwise thwacks conventional thought in ways that will have Johathan Swift spinning in his grave... Like its immediate predecessor, Empire, Forecast is an absorbing, rebellious, rambunctious response in art and thought to the many disasters that man has wrought.

"Forecast, edited by Nicholas Blechman, is the latest edition of Nozone, a smart graphic design and comics 'zine from Princeton Architectural Press. It is the type of publication one picks up, seduced by the cover design and the feel of the stock, only to find the subject matter a lot more serious than expected. Global warming is the theme of this tenth issue of nozone, a forecast in words and pictures of the environment and socio-political changes we can expect over our lifetime and into the next. It is a mix of graphic novel and wake-up call to the mess our world is in; a great format for reading on the bus to get much more of a jolt than a mere cup of coffee can provide."

You need to get this amazing collection. Forecast is a diverse but tightly edited selection, composed of various renowned and/or talented comic artists and designers riffing on the theme of "forecast". You can't miss the weather reference, that does manifest in an underlying climate change theme, but that's far from the only concern of this anthology - there's all manner of playing with ideas of future, of unpredictability, of change, from all manner of angles. The diverse pieces are cohesive even as they explore different moods, and simple things like a nice consistent print style add to the impression that this isn't just your everyday serial grab bag - this issue of Nozone has come out because they have succeeded in collecting together all the things they wanted to say, and the questions they wanted to ask, and the ways they wanted to play with the idea of Forecast. Get it, your passport to the United States of China.
