In Poetry is Useless, Anders Nilsen redefines the sketchbook format, intermingling elegant, densely detailed renderings of mythical animals, short comics drawn in ink, meditations on religion, and abstract shapes and patterns. Stick people debate the dubious merits of economics. Immaculately stippled circles become looser and looser, as craters appear on their surface. A trip to Colombia for a comics festival is recounted in carefully drawn city streets and sketches made in cafes. This expansive sketchbook-as-graphic-novel is exquisitely packaged with appendices and a foreword from Nilsen himself.
