Price: $20.76 on amazon.com

An evocative debut and a glorious mashup of genres, Imagine Wanting Only This contains the meandering stories of everyday places that have fallen to ruins β€” from deserted cities of the American Midwest to an Icelandic town buried in ash to tiny populated islands in the Philippines and beyond.

A personal history that takes the shape of graphic illustrations, Radtke's stories take a reader on a winding journey that also traverses the crumbling canals of human history β€” and the human heart.
