Dans cette petite bande dessinée carrée, Adrian Tomine nous raconte les aventures d'un couple qui prépare son mariage. Du choix de la salle aux cours de danse, de la liste de mariage à la coiffure de la mariée, tout y passe. Adrian Tomine croque avec tendresse et humour ces petits riens du stress prénuptial qui font du mariage un moment unique et inoubliable. Il y a fort à parier que plusieurs se reconnaîtront dans ce couple très moderne ! Dans un style parfois proche de celui de son ami Daniel Clowes (David Boring), Adrian Tomine est l'auteur de Loin d'être parfait et Insomnie et autres histoires. Il est aussi connu pour ses illustrations dans le New Yorker et le Time. Un petit livre qui constitue une très bonne idée de cadeau quand on est invité à un mariage.

This short comic book is made up of brief comic strips Adrian Tomine wrote/drew about his upcoming marriage to his wife Sarah. They take in things like planning for a wedding DJ, sorting out the wedding invites, worrying about what to wear, etc. In short the banal details of planning for such an event.
I love Tomine's work usually but this book (originally done as a party favour for the wedding guests) isn't as interesting as he and his nearest and dearest would like you to think. It's the usual stuff people who are planning a wedding go through and nothing more.
The book is also a really small hardback with about 48 pages. Cute and dinky, it's a great little gift if you were going to Tomine's wedding but as a comic book it's ordinary and unimpressive compared to his usual work.

A short little comic on the trials of organizing a wedding. Might make a good gift to toss in with a wedding present. I guess I was hoping for a little more depth. Joe Matt, it ain't.

This is my first time reading any of Adrian's work and while it isn't earth shattering or something that will drastically change the graphic novel world, it was an enjoyable book. Adrian originally created this as a wedding favor for the guests at his wedding and it provides an insightful look into what one couple goes through in planning their wedding. Adrian is often blunt in what he thinks and wants out of his wedding (so his wife to) and together they provide some laughs as they plan their wedding. All in all an enjoyable quick read.
I give this book only three stars for two factors: One the price. It's a 50 page book and it's $10....so we're paying .20 cents a page? I just think they could have priced this a bit better. Two the size of the book. I don't know if this was the original size or not, but it feels like the images got shrunk and everything is a bit cramped on the page. I would have liked to see it be just a little bit larger so it didn't feel quite as compact.

I've loved Tomine for years. This collection perfectly translates those little hiccups, perfect moments, & frustrations that come with organizing a BIG DAY.
