Market Day by James Strum

Market Day
by James Sturm
Drawn & Quarterly, 2010

A finely-turned story detailing a day and night in the life of Mendleman, an Eastern European rugmaker at the start of the 1900s who travels to market and discovers his beautiful hand-made rugs are no longer valued in an age of mass production. Rendered in a stark tan, brown and black palette, thoughtful and concise, like the best short stories.
